For what year? You need to amend your return and take off her income.
You don't include their income on your return. It would only go on their return if they are required to file one. For 2020 They don't have to file if they only have W2 income under 12,400 but can file to get back any withholding taken out in boxes 2 or 17. But you don't get boxes 4 or 6 back.
How to Amend
This was for 2019. Due to them withholding my 2020 return, I felt to go back and look at the previous year to compare. After reading, I noticed it added my ss and name and not my daughters ss and name for her employment. Due to reasons, i have to add her on my tax and her income. Turbo Tax generated my name and ss not hers
No. Even if you claim her as a dependent she has to file her own return for her own income. You do not enter her income on your return.
Filing requirements for a dependent
She needs to file her own separate 2019 return. She has to check the box that says she can be claimed on someone else's return.

Don’t forget your state. And you will have to print and mail your returns. So be sure to attach copies of your W2s and any 1099s that have withholding on them. You have to mail federal and state in separate envelopes because they go to different places. Get a tracking number from the post office when you mail them for proof of filing.
Did you use YOUR account for your daughter's return ? If so you made a big error ... the online program is for ONE person's return only ... everyone needs their own separate account.
