Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Most likely - your daughter will use the form 1040EZ - www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040ez.pdf - to claim a refund for income taxes withheld.
Please be sure she will check the box on the line 5 - If someone can claim you (or your spouse if a joint return) as a dependent.
If her only income from wages - her standard deduction determined on the worksheet - see second page.
and as a dependent - she will not be able to claim a personal exemption.
So the amount on the line 5 from the worksheet will be $5700 or her wages - whatever is less.
On line 8 - she would not be able to claim making work pay credit.
