My return was rejected per "IND-516". I claimed myself as an exception, but my dad put me as a dependent on his return. Should I exempt or retain dependent status?

I'm 25, my dad put me as dependent as I live at home & parents covered more than half of expenses for most of the year, but I was not a full time student in 2017; I started working in the last 2 months of 2017 and made under $4000. Should he have claimed me as dependent? If not, should I mail my return as it keeps getting rejected here?

Yes, your parents can claim you as a dependent (Qualifying relative) because you made less than $4,050 in 2017. 

You still be able to file your tax return and get a refund for any taxes were withheld from your paychecks. 

Make sure you check "I can be claimed on someone else's return" box.

Thank you. So, say for next year, If i'm living at home, they can't claim me as a dependent because I would be making more than $4000, correct?
