Yes, you can still claim her. If she needs to file her own tax return, she would check on her return that someone else can claim her on their tax return. If she files her own return, she would need to create her own account. She most likely could use the Free Edition.

Do I need to file my own taxes if I'm a dependent.

It ends up that she did not check that box on her return. She used TurboTax free edition.  How do we fix that?

She would have to amend her return to check that someone else can claim her. Since an amended return has to be mailed & it can take 8 to 16 weeks to be processed, you would have to mail in your return claiming her.

How do I amend a 2016 return in TurboTax?

Thanks.  Does this mean my taxes are officially late and I will have to pay late fees?

If you are due a refund, there is no penalty for filing a late tax return. If you owe taxes, you will receive a penalty & interest until the taxes are paid in full.
