Question: Who can sign the income tax return of a minor child?
Minor children should sign their own tax return. If a child cannot sign his or her return, a parent or guardian can sign the child's name in the space provided at the bottom of the tax return followed by "By (signature), parent (or guardian) for minor child."

A parent or guardian who signs the return on a child's behalf may handle any matter regarding the return with the Department of Revenue.
