dependent exemption and HOH

Level 1

Adult child aged 31 has been receiving disability for years and does not file her own tax return. Where in ProSeries do I make the entries to allow taxpayer to claim her as a dependent exemption and head of household status? She does fall into the other qualifications. I'm researching IRS websites now to be sure taxpayer can claim both.

In the Dependent area on the parents' return.

Thank you, but when I do that, this error message pops up - Dependent's SSN should not be the same as the SSN of the qualifying child f HOH.

Is there a place to click 'disabled'?

Do not enter the dependents information in the HOH section unless the child is NOT a dependent but only a qualifier for HOH.   Yes, under EIC dropdown menu you can select "D" for disabled child.
