Should I include my child's Social Security benefits (Form SSA-1099)?

Don't include your child's Social Security benefits (Form SSA-1099) on your tax return. Your child's Social Security benefits are reported on a separate return if necessary. Very few children need to file a tax return even if they get Social Security benefits. Even if the child needs to file a tax return to report wages or significant investment income, the child's Social Security benefits will usually not be taxable.
