Do I include my child's income on my return?

You may be able to include your child's income on your tax return if they:

  • are under age 19 (or was under age 24 and a full time student at the end of the tax year),
  • are not filing a joint return,
  • their only income was from interest and dividends, and
  • they had no estimated taxes or tax withholding during the year in the child's name and SSN.

The total amount of the child’s income must be less than $10,000 for 2013, and they must not have had any taxes withheld or have made any estimated tax payments. More information is available at:
