8 year old receives 8k from deceased fathers military pension. Can this be added to mothers taxes or does he have to file? I told mother she cannot claim the pension, the child has to. I am not sure I am correct. When added to mothers there is tax due, when added to child he has to pay fed and state. Help

Child has to file, and it is subject to Kiddie tax.

D&T is correct. I have a military widow with 3 children receiving military & ss benefits. Filed return for each. Fortunately, mom got lots of insurance and doesn't have to work, so no kiddie tax.
