Act in which an irrevocable gift is made by the parent to the child. For children less than age 14, the first $600 of annual investment earnings is tax free and the next $600 is taxed at the child's 15% tax rate. If the child is at least age 14, all income is taxed at the child's rate. Once the child reaches the age of majority, which in most states is 18 or 21, the child can use the money in that account as desired.
