How to report income for UTMA account

My son is 19 and has no income except i nterest from a UTMA account.  He is below the threshhold for reportable income on his own but I am confused as to how I should deal with his UTMA income.  Since he is over 18, I assume he is on his own as far as reporting is concerned, but my SS# is still listed as his UTMA custodian.  Can I simply ignore the UTMA income in this case and not report it on my account?

    The only person that would have any tax liability on this would be your son.  Since he is 19, he might need to move this money into a non-custodial account in his name.  Check state law and the titling on the UTMA--it's possible to set them up to stay in effect until age 25.

      People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

      1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
      2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
      3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
      4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
      5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
