Major life milestones often have a major tax impact. Changes in your marital status, having a baby or adopting a child can have significant impact on your taxes. This is the place to ask questions about dependents, real estate, and other various scenarios that play a significant role in what taxes you pay.

Hoping someone can help. I filed my taxes with H&R block and claimed my children. One of them being a full time college student I still support. She worked for a couple of months in the summer so I was putting together a return for her but the website is keeping it in review saying she was already on another tax return.
How do I solve this since my other two daughters worked a summer job and I will go through this with them too.

When preparing your child's tax return there must be a question somewhere toward the beginning of
all the questions stating something like, "can you be claimed by someone else", or simply "claimed as
a dependent?" You must answer that yes. That way the child will not get the $4050 personal exemption
but you, as the parent, will.
That should allow your child's return to be accepted by the IRS.
