Why do you ask if I am a parent, guardian or adult acting for a child?
We ask this question to confirm that a parent, guardian or other adult is entering information to prepare a tax return for a child. This is to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. This Act is designed to give parents and guardians control over what information websites collect from their children.
In compliance with this Act, TurboTax does not collect personal information directly from children under 13. A tax return for a child under 13 must be completed by a parent, guardian or other adult on the child’s behalf.
