My Daughter filed her taxes and forgot to check the box that says that someone else can claim her as a dependent. Now when I go to file my taxes it was rejected. I know that my daughter now has to now send in an amendment but what do I do now? Do I file and not claim her so that I do not file late? then later file for amendment to add her in? Also I read somewhere here that after being rejected I cannot efile. That I must print and sign forms in. is this correct?
on the 1040x form that she fills out, there is no place to amend that she can be claimed as a dependent. Do we just write it in part 3 and explain?
