Dependent child filing tax return

"OMB No. 1545-0008" is the number on Form W-2.  If your daughter's only income is $3,140 from a W-2, and she's claimed as a dependent on your return, she wouldn't need to file a return.

Please see the TurboTax FAQ "Do I need to file my own taxes if I'm a dependent?" below for more information.

Dependent child filing tax return

I filed my taxes and claimed my daughter on my taxes. Now I am trying to file her taxes under my profile. Is there a way to do that?

When you use Online TurboTax, you get one return per fee.  Each return needs its own account and user ID.   If you use the same account and user ID for a second return, you overwrite the first one and lose it forever.

When you use Desktop TurboTax, which you install from a CD or download to your own hard drive, you can prepare and e-file multiple returns for the cost of the software.  You can e-file up to 5 Federal returns—more if you mail the additional ones.  If you have multiple returns to prepare for family members, Desktop is more cost effective.
