If your dependent is required to file (see below thresholds) then yes they need their own TT account, (just a note that the downloaded version of turbotax to your computer allows unlimited returns to be filed with up to 5 e-filed and when you have multiple returns is often the more economical method plus it allows more functionality such as drill down within the return and what most superusers utilize).  Your child will probably be free if it was just earned income and no deductions.  There is also Turbotax Freedom edition on another platform https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/3301359
