A child who made under $100 has no requirement to file a tax return, nor do you enter the child's income on your own return,

What kind of income?  W2?  Was withholding taken out?  They can file to get any federal and state withholding back.

my daughters were extras in a couple of movies. They both made less than $100 each. They did hold out Federal Taxes, Medicare, and SSC.

They can each file a return to get the federal taxes back on the W2 box 2.  But it's probably a very small amount.  I'm surprised they took out federal withholding.  Since it's a small amount I would just give them the withholding (even the ss & Meficare) and don't bother filing a return.

 

To file, Online is only good for 1 return per account.  But you can use the same email address for 5 accounts.   How to start another return in the Online version

Your daughters don't have to file tax returns, because their income is below the filing requirements. However, they can file to receive a refund of the federal taxes withheld.
