I have edited my eligible dependants income why does it still ask me to confirm his net income at 0? His income is less than the maximum amount allowed.

To really make sure that this question has been addressed properly, I recommend going to Schedule 5.

Scroll down a bit to the section that starts "Line 305 - Amount for an eligible dependant".  Click the "No" box for the question that says "I confirm that my dependant's Net Income is zero". 

Then, double click on line 4 (that also says 5106) and a screen should pop up that says Dependant Information.  Enter your dependant's information - especially the Net Income value from his/her return - and this should calculate the correct credits that you are allowed to claim.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
