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:
No...Her W-2 goes in her own tax file...in an entirely separate account...NEVER in yours.
You must make sure her tax prep indicates at she did NOT provide more than half of her own support.
File your own taxes first to avoid complications...do hers only after yours has been "Accepted" by the IRS. Adn Again....in her own separate Online account

@SteamTrain 😂 You would think it would be safe for us to wade back that far without stepping all over each other!
