You do not enter your child's earned income from wages reported on a W-2 on your tax return.

Your child is not required to file a tax return if their earned income reported on a W-2 was less than $6,300.  If your child's W-2, for 2016 had federal income tax withheld, they may want to file a federal income tax return to get money back (refund). TurboTax Online has a Free version they may be able to use.

    And this person will claim me on their 2016 tax return.
