No. Do not include your son's income in your return.  Your son should file his own return, if necessary.

If children are still considered your dependents they must file if:

  • Their unearned income is greater than $1,050 (like interest and dividends); or
  • Their earned income is greater than $6,300 (from a job); or
  • They received a 1099-MISC and their net earnings from self-­employment was at least $400.


If your son files his own return, be sure that he checks the boxes:

  • he can be claimed on someone else's return; and
  • he is being claimed on someone else's return.

 

Your TurboTax Online login is only good for one return.  But you can use the same email address for 5 accounts.   For information on how to start another return in the Online version, please see this FAQ:  How do I start another return in TurboTax Online?
