No. You should not include your son's wages on your return.  He should file his own return if necessary.

 

If children are still considered your dependents they must file if:

  • Their unearned income is greater than $1,050 (like interest and dividends);
  • Their earned income is greater than $6,300 (from a job, reported on a W-2); or
  • They received a 1099-MISC and their net earnings from self­-employment was at least $400.


Unless the income was considered from self-employment your son does not have to file a return.
