Delete the W-2's you entered for the dependents.

You do not enter a dependent's earned income from wages reported on a W-2 or their income from self-employment on your tax return.  The dependent can file their own tax return and indicate on their return that they can be claimed as a dependent on someone else's return.

My son just graduated HS in 2016 and is on disability. I support him financially though. Only some of his W2s flagged where they system tried to mark it as my income but the others did not. I don't understand why it only did this to some.
