I have a 17 year old dependent that worked part time. I don’t know how much she made. Less than $5000. Do I have to enter her income on my tax return?

MY DEPENDENT HAD A JOB

If your dependent has a W-2 for his after-school job, summer job, etc. you do not include the information on your own return. You can still claim your child as a dependent on your own return.  He/she can file his own return for a refund of some of his withheld wages (he won’t get back anything for Social Security or Medicare), but MUST indicate on it that he can be claimed as a dependent on someone else’s return.  (Supervise this closely or prepare it for him!)

If your dependent’s earnings were over $400 and were reported on a 1099Misc then he must file a return and pay self-employment tax for Social Security and Medicare.  You may want to use this version of TT for that:

if she got a w-2,  she would only need to file to get back any withholding.   if it is a 1099-misc, she will need to file because she will owe self-employment tax.   you do not include her income from her job(s) on your return.
