Follow the steps below to change whether or not you will be claiming yourself (line 6a) 

1)    Sign into TurboTax Online

2)    Continue your return by click Taxes > Tax Timeline > Take me to my return.

3)    Go to Personal Info > Personal Info Summary > and click Edit to the right of your name.

4)    Scroll down to Question 3 - Someone else can claim me on their tax return.  

               a.       If you select yes – line 6a will be unchecked (someone can claim you)

               b.      If you select no -  line 6a will be checked (you claim yourself)
