My dependent received a 1099-NEC

I know that my dependent needs to file her own tax return because she received a form 1099-NEC ($3,600).  

My question is: If she does file her own tax return for 2020, am I still able to claim her on my own tax return for 2020 being that she was still in HS during the Spring of 2020 and I was taking care of her?  She was 19 years old during that time.

Thank you.

Yes, if you provided for more than half of her support in 2020 and as she earned less than $4,300, you can still claim her as a dependent.

Thank you so much! This has been extremely helpful.  Now, I can continue my filing through TurboTax!  Have a great day!

Thanks a lot.  My 16 year old dependent is in high school and earned $1,500 during 2021.  I had added her 1099-NEC to my Turbo Tax account and it dropped my return amount a lot.  I deleted the entry and my refund amount shot back up.  Now I know that I have to file separately for her.

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 or 1099NEC then he must file a return and pay self-employment tax for Social Security and Medicare.
