It depends.  

 

You would need to check closely to see if you and your siblings qualify to be claimed as a dependent, especially the criteria if you provide yourselves half of your own support.  Click here:

 

Credit for Other Dependents

 

 

Note that if your parents qualify to claim you, but did not actually claim on their return, in the program, under your account, you would still need to check the box Somebody can claim me on their return.  The same rules go to your siblings.

If your brother already filed, he will have to amend his return to change it.
