Do you have a TurboTax Online account?

We'll help you get started or pick up where you left off.

Our daughter filed her return, she chose the “someone else can claim me as a dependent.” However, we are getting the rejection code IND 517-01. We looked and she had.

Her form is checked and our e-file taxes were rejected today. She filed in March and was accepted and refunded.

Our daughter filed her return, she chose the “someone else can claim me as a dependent.” However, we are getting the rejection code IND 517-01. We looked and she had.

There are two questions about dependency.  The 'someone else can claim me as a dependent' and 'they are claiming me as a dependent'  should both be Yes.

 

If not, TurboTax may revert to filing as a Non-Dependent.

 

Check her Standard Deduction amount.  If you are being claimed as a dependent, your Standard Deduction is lower.  For example, in 2023, the Standard Deduction for dependents is whichever is greater:

 

  1. $1,250
  2. Earned income plus $400

 

For a non-dependent, the Standard Deduction is $13,850.

 

If this applies, you will need to mail your return, unfortunately.

 

She will need to Amend her return.
