Dependent of Someone Else

When I click on no the refund amount decreases why is that?

Best bet is to look at the 1040 and see what changes, I personally use the 2 year comparison since its easier to look at differences.  Print one as a dependent and another as not a dependent.

Start by reading the rules for dependents. The answer is to categorize the dependent correctly regardless of the refund monitor. Different situations will have different results. There are lots of different situations. The  2 year comparison may help but imo it’s not likely
