Kiddie Tax


A colloquial term for the tax levied against individuals under the age of 17 whose income is greater than a pre-specified amount. Income above this level is subject to the parents' or guardians' tax rate. Established in 1986, this prevents parents or guardians from giving expensive "gifts" to their children in order to avoid paying higher taxes.
