No. If she's earned income from her investment property she needs to lodge and claim her share

After you transfer full legal ownership to just yourself, then all income earned and all deductions from that point on can be reported by you in your own individual income tax return.

 

But you need to think carefully before you do that because it may bring into play captial gains tax implications.
