I did my taxes on turbo tax and didn’t realize that I put that someone could claim me. No one actually claimed me. Will I still qualify for a stimulus check?

    "No one actually claimed you" does not mean that no one could claim you. The question that is asked of you on your tax return is whether someone could claim you (i.e. whether someone meets the conditions in the law to claim you). You are required to answer Yes if someone could claim you, even if nobody actually does. So, does someone meet the conditions in the law to claim you? – user102008 Apr 12 '20 at 20:05

Probably not. I would suggest filing an amended return. You might also get a bigger refund, because you would be able to take the normal standard deduction.
