You may have entered or missed an entry in TurboTax. 

In the My Info section, please make sure:

  1. On the Do you have children or support someone? screen, answer Yes.
  2. On the Who Do You Support? screen, answer one of the first two options.
  3. On the Tell Us About Your Child screen, verify the birth date and citizenship status.
  4. On the How many months did XXX live with you in 2017 screen, select The Whole Year or the right number of months lived with you
  5. On the We know XXX is a baby/child, but we have to ask: Did (s)he pay for most of his/her living expenses? answer No. 
  6. Make sure you enter that he was a full-time student in 2017 even though he graduated in 2017. Since he was in school for part of 2017 and is 19 years old, he qualifies as a student.
