Even if you are claiming your son as a dependent, you don't report his W-2 on your return,

He would report his W-2 on his own tax return, if required to file a return. You can still claim him as a dependent, as long as his return indicates that "Someone else can claim him on their return" and "Someone else will claim him on their return."
