You'll have to print, sign and mail in your income tax return(s). You won't be able to e-file your income tax return(s) since your son e-filed and claimed himself on his income tax returns. 

  • The IRS has accepted his name, Social Security Number (SSN) and the fact that he entered that no one can claim him as a dependent.
  • Your son will have to amend his income tax return(s) and file Form 1040X. See How to amend (change or correct) a return you already filed?
  • Your son's 1040X has to be mailed in and will take approximately 12 weeks to process.
