Taxact login 10. Taxact login   Education Savings Bond Program Table of Contents Introduction Who Can Cash In Bonds Tax FreeAdjusted qualified education expenses. Taxact login Eligible educational institution. Taxact login Dependent for whom you claim an exemption. Taxact login MAGI when using Form 1040A. Taxact login MAGI when using Form 1040. Taxact login Figuring the Tax-Free AmountEffect of the Amount of Your Income on the Amount of Your Exclusion Claiming the Exclusion Introduction Generally, you must pay tax on the interest earned on U. Taxact login S. Taxact login savings bonds. Taxact login If you do not include the interest in income in the years it is earned, you must include it in your income in the year in which you cash in the bonds. Taxact login However, when you cash in certain savings bonds under an education savings bond program, you may be able to exclude the interest from income. Taxact login Who Can Cash In Bonds Tax Free You may be able to cash in qualified U. Taxact login S. Taxact login savings bonds without having to include in your income some or all of the interest earned on the bonds if you meet the following conditions. Taxact login You pay qualified education expenses for yourself, your spouse, or a dependent for whom you claim an exemption on your return. Taxact login Your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) is less than the amount specified for your filing status. Taxact login Your filing status is not married filing separately. Taxact login Qualified U. Taxact login S. Taxact login savings bonds. Taxact login   A qualified U. Taxact login S. Taxact login savings bond is a series EE bond issued after 1989 or a series I bond. Taxact login The bond must be issued either in your name (as the sole owner) or in the name of both you and your spouse (as co-owners). Taxact login   The owner must be at least 24 years old before the bond's issue date. Taxact login The issue date is printed on the front of the savings bond. Taxact login    The issue date is not necessarily the date of purchase—it will be the first day of the month in which the bond is purchased (or posted, if bought electronically). Taxact login Qualified education expenses. Taxact login   These include the following items you pay for either yourself, your spouse, or a dependent for whom you claim an exemption. Taxact login Tuition and fees required to enroll at or attend an eligible educational institution. Taxact login Qualified education expenses do not include expenses for room and board or for courses involving sports, games, or hobbies that are not part of a degree or certificate granting program. Taxact login Contributions to a qualified tuition program (QTP) (see How Much Can You Contribute in chapter 8, Qualified Tuition Program). Taxact login Contributions to a Coverdell education savings account (ESA) (see Contributions in chapter 7, Coverdell Education Savings Account). Taxact login Adjusted qualified education expenses. Taxact login   You must reduce your qualified education expenses by all of the following tax-free benefits. Taxact login Tax-free part of scholarships and fellowships (see Tax-Free Scholarships and Fellowships in chapter 1, Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, and Tuition Reductions). Taxact login Expenses used to figure the tax-free portion of distributions from a Coverdell ESA (see Qualified Education Expenses in chapter 7, Coverdell Education Savings Account). Taxact login Expenses used to figure the tax-free portion of distributions from a QTP (see Qualified education expenses in chapter 8, Qualified Tuition Program). Taxact login Any tax-free payments (other than gifts or inheritances) received as educational assistance, such as: Veterans' educational assistance benefits (see Veterans' Benefits in chapter 1, Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, and Tuition Reductions), Qualified tuition reductions (see Qualified Tuition Reduction in chapter 1, Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, and Tuition Reductions), or Employer-provided educational assistance (see chapter 11, Employer-Provided Educational Assistance ). Taxact login Any expenses used in figuring the American opportunity and lifetime learning credits. Taxact login See What Expenses Qualify in chapter 2, American Opportunity Credit, and What Expenses Qualify in chapter 3, Lifetime Learning Credit, for more information. Taxact login Eligible educational institution. Taxact login   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. Taxact login S. Taxact login Department of Education. Taxact login It includes virtually all accredited public, nonprofit, and proprietary (privately owned profit-making) postsecondary institutions. Taxact login The educational institution should be able to tell you if it is an eligible educational institution. Taxact login   Certain educational institutions located outside the United States also participate in the U. Taxact login S. Taxact login Department of Education's Federal Student Aid (FSA) programs. Taxact login Dependent for whom you claim an exemption. Taxact login   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. Taxact login Modified adjusted gross income (MAGI). Taxact login   For most taxpayers, MAGI is adjusted gross income (AGI) as figured on their federal income tax return without taking into account this interest exclusion. Taxact login However, as discussed below, there may be other modifications. Taxact login MAGI when using Form 1040A. Taxact login   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). Taxact login MAGI when using Form 1040. Taxact login   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. Taxact login    Use the worksheet in the instructions for line 9 of Form 8815 to figure your MAGI. Taxact login 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. Taxact login 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. Taxact login Enter the total on Form 8815, line 9, as your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI). Taxact login    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. Taxact login 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. Taxact login See Royalties included in MAGI under Education Savings Bond Program in Publication 550, chapter 1. Taxact login 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. Taxact login 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. Taxact login To determine the tax-free amount, multiply the interest part of the proceeds by a fraction. Taxact login The numerator (top part) of the fraction is the adjusted qualified education expenses (AQEE) you paid during the year. Taxact login The denominator (bottom part) of the fraction is the total proceeds you received during the year. Taxact login Example. Taxact login In February 2013, Mark and Joan Washington, a married couple, cashed a qualified series EE U. Taxact login S. Taxact login savings bond. Taxact login They received proceeds of $9,000, representing principal of $6,000 and interest of $3,000. Taxact login In 2013, they paid $7,650 of their daughter's college tuition. Taxact login 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. Taxact login Their MAGI for 2013 was $80,000. Taxact login   $3,000 interest × $7,650 AQEE  $9,000 proceeds = $2,550 tax-free interest   They can exclude $2,550 of interest in 2013. Taxact login They must pay tax on the remaining $450 ($3,000 − $2,550) interest. Taxact login 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. Taxact login Claiming the Exclusion Use Form 8815 to figure your education savings bond interest exclusion. Taxact login Enter your exclusion on line 3 of Schedule B (Form 1040A or 1040), Interest and Ordinary Dividends. Taxact login Attach Form 8815 to your tax return.
