I claimed my son as a dependent but he did his taxes first and did not put that someone could claim him as a dependent what do I do or does he do
MY DEPENDENT CLAIMED HIS OWN EXEMPTION
Your dependent filed a return without saying he could be claimed on your return and your return was rejected? AFTER his return has been fully processed and he has received his refund, he has to file an amended return that says he can be claimed as a dependent on someone else’s return. Amended returns (form 1040X) have to be printed and mailed. They cannot be e-filed; it takes the IRS a couple of months to process them. Meanwhile, since your e-filed return has been rejected, you now have to print and mail it in to the IRS. You will not be able to e-file. You do not have to wait for your dependent’s amended return to be processed. Remember that when you mail a return, you need to include copies of your W-2, etc. with your return.
For your dependent:
I am trying to amend for the same reasons but can't find on where to check "child can be claimed as a dependent. I'm assuming its under personal information but its only asking for income and general information.
The question about being claimed as a dependent appears in My Info.
