Where do I enter my Daughters w-2 she is only 17

She might be better off filing her own return and getting a refund.

Also, depending on what your daughter earned, she may be required to file.

If she files her own Federal tax return, be sure she clicks on "I am a dependent to someone else".

You should still claim her exemption, since she is your dependent.

Does she NEED to file?
"All taxpayers who are claimed as a dependent on someone's tax return are subject to different IRS filing requirements, regardless of whether they are children or adults. Since a 
dependent is unable to claim their own exemption, a tax return is necessary when their earned income is more than the standard deduction for a single taxpayer, which in 2016 is $6,300. However, the threshold decreases to more than $1,050 when the dependent's income is unearned, such as from dividends and interest."
