After you file

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?
