Customer Question
My son while at college...
My son while at college filed his taxes as a non-dependent. I filed my taxes claiming him as a dependent and it was rejected. If he amends his return it takes up to 16 weeks before the change takes affect and we do not have that much time until mid April. What is the best thing to do?

Hello

You should mail your return. Attach a statement explaining about his amended return and what he did.

Do not wait to see if the IRS will change their computer that rarely ever happens. You will be rejected because he has claimed his own exemption.

Complete and mail your return with the statement. He still needs to amend as soon as his is processed.

Please remember to rate my service excellent once you have all the information you need. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
