In 2009 I was emancipated in the state of California (Sept 14 2009.) When I went to file my taxes for that year I was told by my parents that they had claimed me as a dependent. On my W2 form I claimed S 1 for the amount of $10,240.40. After my girlfriends mom helped me with a online tax file thing it said I owed $600. And well at the time I did not have that kind of money so i never filed my taxes for that year.
So I guess my question is how were my parents able to claim me if I was emancipated? And, what should I do for these past due taxes?
