kiddie tax

kiddie tax
A tax imposed on unearned income (in excess of a minimal amount) of a child under the age of 14. Such income is taxed at the parents' highest rate. The Tax Reform Act of 1986 instituted the "kiddie tax" in an effort to stop the shifting of income producing assets within families (i.e., from parents to minor children) which, prior to the TRA, resulted in substantial tax savings to upper bracket parents. I.R.C. No. l(i)
