On April 16th, we were having dinner and discussing taxes. Actually, I noticed no one in a sweat at my workplace on the 15th and asked my husband about his. He talked to one person who had a problem. He pushed the button to electronically file late in the evening and the return wasn't accepted. His son had already filed and had not said he could be claimed as someone else's dependent.

Now in this case, it was pretty much just crossed wires(and a couple of 1040Xs to be done) but it made me wonder - what happens when someone already claimed the dependent or the person claimed themself ?
