My son Zachary claimed himself this year on his own income tax. He only made 4858.36 in 2016. I wanted to have him to ammend his income tax so I can claim him for 2016?

We pulled money from our retirement to pay for his college, transportation, living expenses and he lived with us half the 2016 year. Can I still claim him.

Was Zachary under the age of 24 in 2016?  (If he was 24 or older in 2016 you cannot claim him since he made over $4050)

 Your dependent filed a return without saying he could be claimed on your return and your return was rejected?  AFTER his return has been fully processed and he has received his refund, he has to file an amended return that says he can be claimed as a dependent on someone else’s return.  Amended returns (form 1040X) have to be printed and mailed.  They cannot be e-filed; it takes the IRS a couple of months to process them.  Meanwhile, since your e-filed return has been rejected, you now have to print and mail it in to the IRS.  You will not be able to e-file.  Remember that when you mail a return, you need to include copies of your W-2, etc. with your return.
