Personal exemption not correct on return

To check your entry in your return, click Personal Info tab, and click edit next to the first section of your personal information. Scroll down to 3. A few other things we need to know and the first questions asks if "Someone else can claim me as a dependent on their return" you'll need to change your answer to No.

Personal exemption not correct on return

I have the same issue in getting correct personal exemptions in 2016 TurboTax.  Filing married jointly with 3 dependents, line 42 of 1040 form only shows 2 x $4,050 instead of 5 x $4,050.  All 3 dependents fulfilled the dependent test. I checked "No" in "Someone else can claim me as a dependent on their return" for all 3 dependents!  I had no issue in same personal exemptions calculations in the past 10 years' version of TurboTax.  I always got 5x personal exemptions in the past.  Is it some bugs need to be fixed?

Personal exemption not correct on return

There's no bug with dependent exemptions. This question was someone about a different mistake the customer made in entry. You need to check the status of your dependents by clicking the "Personal Info" tab and scrolling down to the "Status" of each of your dependents. Otherwise, you should post a new question because this is a different topic.
