As adults, we are familiar with the frustrating and soul-sucking task of doing taxes. For some, it’s an extra payday. For others, it’s just one more bill to add to a growing stack of other financial obligations. What is a kid’s take on taxes?

My first take would be to say that a kid’s knowledge of taxes is based on parental commentary. That can’t be good.

Maybe the best explanation is paying your child for a chore. Tell them you will pay $5 to clean their room. When they’ve completed the job, give them $3.50. When they argue and demand their five dollars, simply say, “taxes.”


It’s a lesson we all have to learn, sooner or later. So, on Tax Day 2023, here is a kid’s take on taxes.
