Yeah right if they want to get arrested ! Minors can sign tax returns at any age, the catch is, if there is a problem with the filing the parents or legal guardian will be held responsible. Other documents both state and federal sometimes require the parents and the minor's signature, but any parent who has custody of the minor can sign any document on the minor's behalf. Regardless of the situation, parents and legal guardians are ALWAYS responsible for the minor child/children until they reach the age of majority, meaning whether the minor signs or not is irrelevant. The only exception is when the issue is one of medical care.
