18yrold dghtr student earned 18k, on her rtn I indicated she could/was claimed on another return-no limit on std ded. Her parent's rtn reject, said ssn already used. Why?

Level 7

Is this because her income was over $4,150? Program gave full std deduction $12,000. Or is this a bug?

no, I filed student's return before parents return

I am thinking maybe it is because her income was so high-but she was a student for five months and then graduated

:open_mouth: Student went first? I assume student went through fine? Parents next and was rejected?
The student for sure showed she was claimed by another? After that, I cant think of a reason why.

The reject was for student? No other dependents?

Scary sh-t. If you can remember, please come back and report. I am curious because I would've filed same without a thought.

I filed a student a few days before the parents and both went through okay.  On the students 1040 form is the box checked under your standard deduction "Someone can claim you as a dependent "?

Hmmm, Ive got a similar student/parent scenario that came in tonight...

18 yo Daughter earned 15K, it gave her the full standard 12k Deduction...she's marked as a  dependent on someone else's return.  Mom asked if she would get more refund if daughter claimed herself, I unchecked the dependent boxes just to be sure but everything stayed the same....so Mom didn't feel bad claiming her.  I get some parents that feel bad claiming their student child and the student doesn't get all their refund.

I'll be filing moms return first though, I don't have sigs from the daughter yet.

I got the 8615 that popped up for the 18 yo daughter, she didn't have any unearned income though, so I dunno why it appeared.

I had the same on a 20 yr old. Claims self but 8615 pops up. Does it pop up due to age 19-23?

question unrelated......there are numerous forms (federal) that are supposed to be ready on 01/31. Are they delayed or do you see the yellow bar across top of form (f4562, 8829 etc...)?

I had one really simple one, and then one that wasn't overly difficult but I ran into that little problem that Intuit didn't think anyone from Minnesota would actually itemize this year.  So now I'm moving down to Alabama where I don't have worry about starting any returns for a couple of weeks.  :truck::truck:

On the actual 1040 it is at the top of the form under the name and address,  and  filing status.

Also since the earned income was 18,000 they would get the full standard deduction.

"We have done a couple of dopey things this week"

But yet the anvil guy's record is clean for the week.  Maybe an anvil a day helps in this job.

Should we go for matching colors?
Lisa, you forgot to include the tidbit that it was on your OWN return :smiling_imp:
Jeff, how many points do they cost.  I *might* want more than one color if I have enough points, since I am such a "fashionista".  :laughing:
