Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
No, she doesn't. She can earn up to $6300 without having to file a tax return, unless she is paid as independent contractor (1099Misc - box 7 - nonemployee compensation). I am assuming the price was reported to her on 1099Misc - box 3 - other income. Unless federal and/or taxes had been taken out, she doesn't have to file a tax return.
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?

No, you don't. You do not need to claim her income on your tax return.
Income received or reported to dependents is reported on depends return, not the parent's return. As long as the income is not reported on 1099Misc in box 7 - nonemployee compensation, than no. She doesn't need to file and you definitely don't need to report it on your tax return.
Any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today? And if you found my answers helpful, a Positive Rating would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
