Did you e-File? Your father can try to claim you but he will have to do it on paper.

Since you already filed, you could be OK.

You will know shortly.

If over age 18 and not a full-time student AND your gross income was more the $4,200 in 2019 then you cannot be a dependent.  If you were claimed then your father needs to amend and remove you or he will receive a big tax bill in about a year or so for the back tax, interest and penalties.

Hello thank you for replying I appreciate it. My father most likely will refuse to take me off as a dependent even if it means he gets fined in the future. Do you know if this now no longer qualifies me for a stimulus check? Also, is there any place I can file a claim aganced him for incorrectly claiming me? Any advice would help thank you so much

If you did not check the box that you can be claimed as a dependent then your fathers e-file will reject since a SSN cannot be filed more than once.
