    Hello, menyon!

    That is a great question!

    You will not include his W-2 on your tax return. He will need to include it on his return if he is required to file. You can use this IRS tool to help you determine if he needs to file his return.

    As for claiming him as a dependent, you may still be able to claim if he's a full-time student or if his gross income is less than $4,300, $4,700 for 2023. I recommend using this IRS tool to confirm that you can claim him as a dependent.
