My return was rejected per "IND-516". I claimed myself as an exception, but my dad put me as a dependent on his return. Should I exempt or retain dependent status?

I'm 25, my dad put me as dependent as I live at home & parents covered more than half of expenses for most of the year, but I was not a full time student in 2017; I started working in the last 2 months of 2017 and made under $4000. Should he have claimed me as dependent? If not, should I mail my return as it keeps getting rejected here?

Yes, your parents can claim you as a dependent (Qualifying relative) because you made less than $4,050 in 2017. 

You still be able to file your tax return and get a refund for any taxes were withheld from your paychecks. 

Make sure you check "I can be claimed on someone else's return" box.

Who can I claim as my dependent? https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/5187060

Thank you. So, say for next year, If i'm living at home, they can't claim me as a dependent because I would be making more than $4000, correct?
