I have two kids with custodial accounts and I recently made some changes to the accounts and generated some Capital Gains. I am married and filing jointly. I am trying to see how these will be taxed. I will give one example and figure out my second son. I generated LTCG of $6439.62 and STCG of $232.71. In addition he has a Capital Loss Carryover of $610. He will be 17 this year and as of right now he has no other income - he may get a part time job after football season and may have a few hundred dollars of income. Thank you very much for the help.
