Believe it or not, it’s important to set up a savings account for a child as soon as they are born. That way, once they are old enough to learn enough about money, the foundation will be there as they learn to budget, spend and save wisely over their formative years.

Do I have to pay taxes on my child’s savings account interest?

The technical answer is yes, but your child would need to earn at least $700 in interest before your taxes are impacted. In most cases, a child’s savings account will represent all upside and no downside, as it helps them get a head start on life.

Can you withdraw from a youth savings account?

Of course! Keep in mind the point of a savings account is to accumulate money over long periods of time. So, if you are considering using the money in your child’s account regularly, it may make more sense to explore a checking account from Greater Nevada.
