Why is my 2023 form asking for my parents' social security information? I am a student filing for myself.

Please clarify your question.

 

  • Is this your first time filing alone?
  • Did you indicate that someone else can claim you as a dependent?
  • Is there anything in the My Info section that may trigger this?
  • Did you get any kind of error message?

Please contact us again with any questions, and provide some additional details.

If you are a student under age 24, your parents take the education deductions and credits.

I assume IRS checks to see that two tax returns don't take the same credit.
