Lets assume that you hid the investments from the parents. You can still mail in the taxes due.

And just how are you going to know what taxes are due without:

1. acquiring the parents' 1040 without their permission?
2. filing a 1040x without forging the parents' signatures?

A trust, which you mentioned in another message, may be a better choice since, even though the trust would likely pay more taxes, it would keep one from having to meddle with the parents' taxes.
