Chances are he's not your dependent.  He can only be your dependent if:

  • You lived together the entire year
  • He earned less than $4050 of reportable income
  • You provided more than half of his support

If he had too much income, he files separately from you.  If he does still qualify as your dependent, his w-2 is not reported on your return.  He would have to file a separate return stating that he is being claimed on another return by someone else.  In this situation, he would be filing to have his federal (and state) taxes refunded to him.

You do not report his income on your return.  It would only on on his return if he is required to file.  Online is only good for 1 return.  But you can use the same email address for 5 accounts.   How to start another return in the Online version      <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/3288574">https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/3288574</a>

He didnt make enough

How much?  He can file to get back any withholding taken out.  If he doesn’t file then nobody reports the W2.
