Go 2007 taxes The owner must be at least 24 years old before the bond's issue date. Go 2007 taxes The issue date is printed on the front of the savings bond.

Go 2007 taxes Any expenses used in figuring the American opportunity and lifetime learning credits. Go 2007 taxes See What Expenses Qualify in chapter 2, American Opportunity Credit, and What Expenses Qualify in chapter 3, Lifetime Learning Credit, for more information. Go 2007 taxes Eligible educational institution. Go 2007 taxes An eligible educational institution is any college, university, vocational school, or other postsecondary educational institution eligible to participate in a student aid program administered by the U. Go 2007 taxes S. Go 2007 taxes Department of Education. Go 2007 taxes It includes virtually all accredited public, nonprofit, and proprietary (privately owned profit-making) postsecondary institutions. Go 2007 taxes The educational institution should be able to tell you if it is an eligible educational institution. Go 2007 taxes Certain educational institutions located outside the United States also participate in the U. Go 2007 taxes S. Go 2007 taxes Department of Education's Federal Student Aid (FSA) programs. Go 2007 taxes Dependent for whom you claim an exemption. Go 2007 taxes You claim an exemption for a person if you list his or her name and other required information on Form 1040 (or Form 1040A), line 6c. Go 2007 taxes Modified adjusted gross income (MAGI). Go 2007 taxes For most taxpayers, MAGI is adjusted gross income (AGI) as figured on their federal income tax return without taking into account this interest exclusion. Go 2007 taxes However, as discussed below, there may be other modifications. Go 2007 taxes MAGI when using Form 1040A. Go 2007 taxes 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). Go 2007 taxes MAGI when using Form 1040. Go 2007 taxes If you file Form 1040, your MAGI is the AGI on line 38 of that form figured without taking into account any savings bond interest exclusion and modified by adding back any: Foreign earned income exclusion, Foreign housing exclusion, Foreign housing deduction, Exclusion of income by bona fide residents of American Samoa, Exclusion of income by bona fide residents of Puerto Rico, Exclusion for adoption benefits received under an employer's adoption assistance program, Deduction for student loan interest, Deduction for tuition and fees, and Deduction for domestic production activities. Go 2007 taxes Use the worksheet in the instructions for line 9 of Form 8815 to figure your MAGI. Go 2007 taxes If you claim any of the exclusion or deduction items (1)–(6) listed above, add the amount of the exclusion or deduction to the amount on line 5 of the worksheet. Go 2007 taxes Do not add in the deduction for (7) student loan interest, and (8) tuition and fees, or (9) domestic production activities because line 4 of the worksheet already includes these amounts. Go 2007 taxes Enter the total on Form 8815, line 9, as your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI). Go 2007 taxes Because the deduction for interest expenses attributable to royalties and other investments is limited to your net investment income, you cannot figure the deduction until you have figured this interest exclusion. Go 2007 taxes Therefore, if you had interest expenses attributable to royalties and deductible on Schedule E (Form 1040), Supplemental Income and Loss, you must make a special computation of your deductible interest without regard to this exclusion to figure the net royalty income included in your MAGI. Go 2007 taxes See Royalties included in MAGI under Education Savings Bond Program in Publication 550, chapter 1. Go 2007 taxes 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. Go 2007 taxes However, if the total you receive when you cash in the bonds is more than the adjusted expenses, only part of the interest may be tax free. Go 2007 taxes To determine the tax-free amount, multiply the interest part of the proceeds by a fraction. Go 2007 taxes The numerator (top part) of the fraction is the adjusted qualified education expenses (AQEE) you paid during the year. Go 2007 taxes The denominator (bottom part) of the fraction is the total proceeds you received during the year. Go 2007 taxes Example. Go 2007 taxes In February 2013, Mark and Joan Washington, a married couple, cashed a qualified series EE U. Go 2007 taxes S. Go 2007 taxes savings bond. Go 2007 taxes They received proceeds of $9,000, representing principal of $6,000 and interest of $3,000. Go 2007 taxes In 2013, they paid $7,650 of their daughter's college tuition. Go 2007 taxes 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. Go 2007 taxes Their MAGI for 2013 was $80,000. Go 2007 taxes $3,000 interest × $7,650 AQEE $9,000 proceeds = $2,550 tax-free interest They can exclude $2,550 of interest in 2013. Go 2007 taxes They must pay tax on the remaining $450 ($3,000 − $2,550) interest. Go 2007 taxes Effect of the Amount of Your Income on the Amount of Your Exclusion The amount of your interest exclusion is gradually reduced (phased out) based on your MAGI and filing status. Go 2007 taxes Claiming the Exclusion Use Form 8815 to figure your education savings bond interest exclusion. Go 2007 taxes Enter your exclusion on line 3 of Schedule B (Form 1040A or 1040), Interest and Ordinary Dividends. Go 2007 taxes Attach Form 8815 to your tax return.
