just answer yes or no please

Good afternoon. I'm sorry, but under the JustAnswer guidelines, I'm not allowed to provide personal information.

Good afternoon. You can't both claim her. But, given the facts, she's not going to owe any taxes whether or not she claims herself. So, your daughter should not claim herself; rather, you should claim her because you would be the only one to get a tax benefit from claiming her.

Understand.
Okay she already filed and got credit for her baby. So I guess I won't add her to my taxes. Someone had told me if your young adult lives with you and earns less than 4,000 you can claim them. I just wanted to make sure

You would be able to claim her as long as she doesn't claim herself. She should file an amended return so she can remove the claim for herself.

She already received her return. Is that a big deal? I mean I won't claim her

It will not be a big deal and it won't impact her refund.
