Thinking back on it, DS had a W2 starting when he was 10 (movie extra/stand in), so the idea of him doing his own taxes never even occurred to us or him. Both he and DD don't seem to have any trouble doing them now. But my parents were so oblivious to us kids that we all did our own taxes and they never even knew it.
