How did that person get the dependent's SSN?

If your e-filed return was rejected because someone else claimed one of your dependents, and you're sure that you have the right to claim that dependent, then your only recourse is to print and mail your return.  If you attempt to e-file again, your return will just be rejected again.

The IRS will determine who has the rightful claim to the dependent.  Winner gets the dependent exemption; loser must pay the tax due, plus any penalty or interest that might apply.

Are you the custodial parent (did your son live more than half the year with you)?

Enter your son's information in the Personal Info section of TurboTax under Dependents, then once you're sure your return is correct, print the return and mail it in.
