Not really sure how the tax laws would apply, but see how this might fit in for your situation. As a US citizen, you are exempt from taxes on a certain amount of foreign income (up to $80 thousand I believe). One choice would be to open the fund specifically in the child's name. Possibly investing in higher dividend paying stocks. Then each year file a tax return for the child. I know even with my earned income exemption, the dividends I have earned over the past 4 years haven't been hit by any kind of taxes based on whatever my accountant does. Maybe it would work the same. Either that or my accountant is doing something illegal.fool on~Charm
