My HS daughter had a part time job in 2020. She only made $560 in 2020. How do I deal with this? Will she file her own taxes? Do I still claim her and add the $560 to our total salary? Thanks

She is 16 years old.

You still claim her as a dependent.

 

You do not report his/her income on your return. If it has to be reported, at all, it goes on his own return. If your dependent child is under age 19 (or under 24 if a full time student), he or she must file a tax return for 2019 if he had any of the following:

  1.          Total income (wages, salaries, taxable scholarship etc.) of more than $12,400.
  2.          Unearned income (interest, dividends, capital gains) of more than $1100.
  3.          Unearned income over $350 and gross income of more than $1100
  4.          Household employee income (e.g. baby sitting, lawn mowing) over $2100 ($12.200 if under age 18)
  5.          Other self employment income over $400, including box 7 of a 1099-MISC

 

Even if he had less, he is allowed to file if he needs to get back income tax withholding. He cannot get back social security or Medicare tax withholding.

In TurboTax, he indicates that somebody else can claim him as a dependent, at the personal information section.
