Filing taxes in 2014   If you file Form 1040A, your MAGI is the AGI on line 22 of that form figured without taking into account any savings bond interest exclusion and modified by adding back any amount on line 18 (student loan interest deduction) and line 19 (tuition and fees deduction).

Filing taxes in 2014 Figuring the Tax-Free Amount If the total you receive when you cash in the bonds is not more than the adjusted qualified education expenses for the year, all of the interest on the bonds may be tax free.

Filing taxes in 2014 To determine the tax-free amount, multiply the interest part of the proceeds by a fraction. Filing taxes in 2014 The numerator (top part) of the fraction is the adjusted qualified education expenses (AQEE) you paid during the year. Filing taxes in 2014 The denominator (bottom part) of the fraction is the total proceeds you received during the year. Filing taxes in 2014 Example.

Filing taxes in 2014 They are not claiming an American opportunity or lifetime learning credit for those expenses, and their daughter does not have any tax-free educational assistance. Filing taxes in 2014 Their MAGI for 2013 was $80,000. Filing taxes in 2014   $3,000 interest × $7,650 AQEE  $9,000 proceeds = $2,550 tax-free interest   They can exclude $2,550 of interest in 2013.
