Your son's wage income is not reported on your tax return.  His combined wages and unearned income is below the filing threshhold of $1,050, so he is not required to file a return, and you are not required to report his savings income on your return in this case.  If taxes were withheld from his pay, you might consider filing a return for him to get a refund for him.
