Where do I add W2 for my dependent

My daughter was a full time student for 6 months last year and worked also. So I am filling her as a dependent. On the page for W2's I can only add one for me or my wife. How do I add here details?

Last year she worked also. When I filed taxes I was asked how much she earned and then was told she did not need to file as the amount was low. I do not see this option this year. If she files herself can I still claim here as a dependent?

Yes. As long as she answers Yes to (Someone else can claim me as a dependent on their tax return) in her personal information page. Question 3, first topic.

Your dependent would need to file their own return to report their W-2.

They will also need their own TurboTax Online Account to do this.

Each Online Return is identified by a Unique Username

You may use the same email address and phone number as your account.

You may have up to 5 accounts linked to a single email address.

They just need to indicate that can be claimed as a dependent in their Personal Info by answering Yes to the question

Someone else can claim me as a dependent on their tax return.

They may qualify for the TurboTax Freedom edition here:
