File 2006 taxes online There are no income restrictions on the individual contributors. File 2006 taxes online You can contribute to both a QTP and a Coverdell ESA in the same year for the same designated beneficiary. File 2006 taxes online   Are Distributions Taxable The part of a distribution representing the amount paid or contributed to a QTP does not have to be included in income. File 2006 taxes online This is a return of the investment in the plan. File 2006 taxes online The designated beneficiary generally does not have to include in income any earnings distributed from a QTP if the total distribution is less than or equal to adjusted qualified education expenses (defined under Figuring the Taxable Portion of a Distribution , later). File 2006 taxes online Earnings and return of investment. File 2006 taxes online    You will receive a Form 1099-Q, from each of the programs from which you received a QTP distribution in 2013. File 2006 taxes online The amount of your gross distribution (box 1) shown on each form will be divided between your earnings (box 2) and your basis, or return of investment (box 3). File 2006 taxes online Form 1099-Q should be sent to you by January 31, 2014. File 2006 taxes online Figuring the Taxable Portion of a Distribution To determine if total distributions for the year are more or less than the amount of qualified education expenses, you must compare the total of all QTP distributions for the tax year to the adjusted qualified education expenses. File 2006 taxes online Adjusted qualified education expenses. File 2006 taxes online   This amount is the total qualified education expenses reduced by any tax-free educational assistance. File 2006 taxes online Tax-free educational assistance includes: The tax-free part of scholarships and fellowships (see Tax-Free Scholarships and Fellowships in chapter 1, Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, and Tuition Reductions), Veterans' educational assistance (see Veterans' Benefits in chapter 1, Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, and Tuition Reductions), Pell grants (see Pell Grants and Other Title IV Need-Based Education Grants in chapter 1, Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, and Tuition Reductions), Employer-provided educational assistance (see chapter 11, Employer-Provided Educational Assistance ), and Any other nontaxable (tax-free) payments (other than gifts or inheritances) received as educational assistance. File 2006 taxes online Taxable earnings. File 2006 taxes online   Use the following steps to figure the taxable part. File 2006 taxes online Multiply the total distributed earnings shown in box 2 of Form 1099-Q by a fraction. File 2006 taxes online The numerator is the adjusted qualified education expenses paid during the year and the denominator is the total amount distributed during the year. File 2006 taxes online Subtract the amount figured in (1) from the total distributed earnings. File 2006 taxes online The result is the amount the beneficiary must include in income. File 2006 taxes online Report it on Form 1040 or Form 1040NR, line 21. File 2006 taxes online Example 1. File 2006 taxes online In 2007, Sara Clarke's parents opened a savings account for her with a QTP maintained by their state government. File 2006 taxes online Over the years they contributed $18,000 to the account. File 2006 taxes online The total balance in the account was $27,000 on the date the distribution was made. File 2006 taxes online In the summer of 2013, Sara enrolled in college and had $8,300 of qualified education expenses for the rest of the year. File 2006 taxes online She paid her college expenses from the following sources. File 2006 taxes online   Gift from parents $1,600     Partial tuition scholarship (tax-free) 3,100     QTP distribution 5,300           Before Sara can determine the taxable part of her QTP distribution, she must reduce her total qualified education expenses by any tax-free educational assistance. File 2006 taxes online   Total qualified education expenses $8,300     Minus: Tax-free educational assistance −3,100     Equals: Adjusted qualified  education expenses (AQEE) $5,200   Since the remaining expenses ($5,200) are less than the QTP distribution, part of the earnings will be taxable. File 2006 taxes online Sara's Form 1099-Q shows that $950 of the QTP distribution is earnings. File 2006 taxes online Sara figures the taxable part of the distributed earnings as follows. File 2006 taxes online   1. File 2006 taxes online $950 (earnings) × $5,200 AQEE  $5,300 distribution           =$932 (tax-free earnings)     2. File 2006 taxes online $950 (earnings)−$932 (tax-free earnings)     =$18 (taxable earnings)  Sara must include $18 in income (Form 1040, line 21) as distributed QTP earnings not used for adjusted qualified education expenses. File 2006 taxes online Coordination With American Opportunity and Lifetime Learning Credits An American opportunity or lifetime learning credit (education credit) can be claimed in the same year the beneficiary takes a tax-free distribution from a QTP, as long as the same expenses are not used for both benefits. File 2006 taxes online This means that after the beneficiary reduces qualified education expenses by tax-free educational assistance, he or she must further reduce them by the expenses taken into account in determining the credit. File 2006 taxes online Example 2. File 2006 taxes online Assume the same facts as in Example 1 , except that Sara's parents claimed an American opportunity credit of $2,500 (based on $4,000 expenses). File 2006 taxes online   Total qualified education expenses $8,300     Minus: Tax-free educational assistance −3,100     Minus: Expenses taken into account  in figuring American opportunity credit −4,000     Equals: Adjusted qualified  education expenses (AQEE) $1,200           The taxable part of the distribution is figured as follows. File 2006 taxes online   1. File 2006 taxes online $950 (earnings) × $1,200 AQEE  $5,300 distribution           =$215 (tax-free earnings)     2. File 2006 taxes online $950 (earnings)−$215 (tax-free earnings)     =$735 (taxable earnings)       Sara must include $735 in income (Form 1040, line 21). File 2006 taxes online This represents distributed earnings not used for adjusted qualified education expenses. File 2006 taxes online Coordination With Coverdell ESA Distributions If a designated beneficiary receives distributions from both a QTP and a Coverdell ESA in the same year, and the total of these distributions is more than the beneficiary's adjusted qualified higher education expenses, the expenses must be allocated between the distributions. File 2006 taxes online For purposes of this allocation, disregard any qualified elementary and secondary education expenses. File 2006 taxes online Example 3. File 2006 taxes online Assume the same facts as in Example 2 , except that instead of receiving a $5,300 distribution from her QTP, Sara received $4,600 from that account and $700 from her Coverdell ESA. File 2006 taxes online In this case, Sara must allocate her $1,200 of adjusted qualified higher education expenses (AQHEE) between the two distributions. File 2006 taxes online   $1,200 AQHEE × $700 ESA distribution  $5,300 total distribution = $158 AQHEE (ESA)     $1,200 AQHEE × $4,600 QTP distribution  $5,300 total distribution = $1,042 AQHEE (QTP)   Sara then figures the taxable portion of her Coverdell ESA distribution based on qualified higher education expenses of $158, and the taxable portion of her QTP distribution based on the other $1,042. File 2006 taxes online Note. File 2006 taxes online If you are required to allocate your expenses between Coverdell ESA and QTP distributions, and you have adjusted qualified elementary and secondary education expenses, see the examples in chapter 7, Coverdell Education Savings Account under Coordination With Qualified Tuition Program (QTP) Distributions . File 2006 taxes online Coordination With Tuition and Fees Deduction. File 2006 taxes online   A tuition and fees deduction can be claimed in the same year the beneficiary takes a tax-free distribution from a QTP, as long as the same expenses are not used for both benefits. File 2006 taxes online Losses on QTP Investments If you have a loss on your investment in a QTP account, you may be able to take the loss on your income tax return. File 2006 taxes online You can take the loss only when all amounts from that account have been distributed and the total distributions are less than your unrecovered basis. File 2006 taxes online Your basis is the total amount of contributions to that QTP account. File 2006 taxes online You claim the loss as a miscellaneous itemized deduction on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 23 (Schedule A (Form 1040NR), line 9), subject to the 2%-of-adjusted-gross-income limit. File 2006 taxes online If you have distributions from more than one QTP account during a year, you must combine the information (amount of distribution, basis, etc. File 2006 taxes online ) from all such accounts in order to determine your taxable earnings for the year. File 2006 taxes online By doing this, the loss from one QTP account reduces the distributed earnings (if any) from any other QTP accounts. File 2006 taxes online Example 1. File 2006 taxes online In 2013, Taylor received a final distribution of $1,000 from QTP #1. File 2006 taxes online His unrecovered basis in that account before the distribution was $3,000. File 2006 taxes online If Taylor itemizes his deductions, he can claim the $2,000 loss on Schedule A (Form 1040). File 2006 taxes online Example 2. File 2006 taxes online Assume the same facts as in Example 1 , except that Taylor also had a distribution of $9,000 from QTP #2, giving him total distributions for 2013 of $10,000. File 2006 taxes online His total basis in these distributions was $4,500 ($3,000 for QTP #1 and $1,500 for QTP #2). File 2006 taxes online Taylor's adjusted qualified education expenses for 2013 totaled $6,000. File 2006 taxes online In order to figure his taxable earnings, Taylor combines the two accounts and determines his taxable earnings as follows. File 2006 taxes online   1. File 2006 taxes online $10,000 (total distribution)−$4,500 (basis portion of distribution)     = $5,500 (earnings included in distribution)   2. File 2006 taxes online $5,500 (earnings) x $6,000 AQEE  $10,000 distribution           =$3,300 (tax-free earnings)     3. File 2006 taxes online $5,500 (earnings)−$3,300 (tax-free earnings)     =$2,200 (taxable earnings)                 Taylor must include $2,200 in income on Form 1040, line 21. File 2006 taxes online Because Taylor's accounts must be combined, he cannot deduct his $2,000 loss (QTP #1) on Schedule A (Form 1040). File 2006 taxes online Instead, the $2,000 loss reduces the total earnings that were distributed, thereby reducing his taxable earnings. File 2006 taxes online Additional Tax on Taxable Distributions Generally, if you receive a taxable distribution, you also must pay a 10% additional tax on the amount included in income. File 2006 taxes online Exceptions. File 2006 taxes online   The 10% additional tax does not apply to distributions: Paid to a beneficiary (or to the estate of the designated beneficiary) on or after the death of the designated beneficiary. File 2006 taxes online Made because the designated beneficiary is disabled. File 2006 taxes online A person is considered to be disabled if he or she shows proof that he or she cannot do any substantial gainful activity because of his or her physical or mental condition. File 2006 taxes online A physician must determine that his or her condition can be expected to result in death or to be of long-continued and indefinite duration. File 2006 taxes online Included in income because the designated beneficiary received: A tax-free scholarship or fellowship (see Tax-Free Scholarships and Fellowships in chapter 1, Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, and Tuition Reductions), Veterans' educational assistance (see Veterans' Benefits in chapter 1, Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, and Tuition Reductions), Employer-provided educational assistance (see chapter 11, Employer-Provided Educational Assistance ), or Any other nontaxable (tax-free) payments (other than gifts or inheritances) received as educational assistance. File 2006 taxes online Made on account of the attendance of the designated beneficiary at a U. File 2006 taxes online S. File 2006 taxes online military academy (such as the USNA at Annapolis). File 2006 taxes online This exception applies only to the extent that the amount of the distribution does not exceed the costs of advanced education (as defined in section 2005(d)(3) of title 10 of the U. File 2006 taxes online S. File 2006 taxes online Code) attributable to such attendance. File 2006 taxes online Included in income only because the qualified education expenses were taken into account in determining the American opportunity or lifetime learning credit (see Coordination With American Opportunity and Lifetime Learning Credits , earlier. File 2006 taxes online ) Exception (3) applies only to the extent the distribution is not more than the scholarship, allowance, or payment. File 2006 taxes online Figuring the additional tax. File 2006 taxes online    Use Part II of Form 5329, to figure any additional tax. File 2006 taxes online Report the amount on Form 1040, line 58, or Form 1040NR, line 56. File 2006 taxes online Rollovers and Other Transfers Assets can be rolled over or transferred from one QTP to another. File 2006 taxes online In addition, the designated beneficiary can be changed without transferring accounts. File 2006 taxes online Rollovers Any amount distributed from a QTP is not taxable if it is rolled over to another QTP for the benefit of the same beneficiary or for the benefit of a member of the beneficiary's family (including the beneficiary's spouse). File 2006 taxes online An amount is rolled over if it is paid to another QTP within 60 days after the date of the distribution. File 2006 taxes online Do not report qualifying rollovers (those that meet the above criteria) anywhere on Form 1040 or 1040NR. File 2006 taxes online These are not taxable distributions. File 2006 taxes online Members of the beneficiary's family. File 2006 taxes online   For these purposes, the beneficiary's family includes the beneficiary's spouse and the following other relatives of the beneficiary. File 2006 taxes online Son, daughter, stepchild, foster child, adopted child, or a descendant of any of them. File 2006 taxes online Brother, sister, stepbrother, or stepsister. File 2006 taxes online Father or mother or ancestor of either. File 2006 taxes online Stepfather or stepmother. File 2006 taxes online Son or daughter of a brother or sister. File 2006 taxes online Brother or sister of father or mother. File 2006 taxes online Son-in-law, daughter-in-law, father-in-law, mother-in-law, brother-in-law, or sister-in-law. File 2006 taxes online The spouse of any individual listed above. File 2006 taxes online First cousin. File 2006 taxes online Example. File 2006 taxes online When Aaron graduated from college last year he had $5,000 left in his QTP. File 2006 taxes online He wanted to give this money to his younger brother, who was in junior high school. File 2006 taxes online In order to avoid paying tax on the distribution of the amount remaining in his account, Aaron contributed the same amount to his brother's QTP within 60 days of the distribution. File 2006 taxes online If the rollover is to another QTP for the same beneficiary, only one rollover is allowed within 12 months of a previous transfer to any QTP for that designated beneficiary. File 2006 taxes online Changing the Designated Beneficiary There are no income tax consequences if the designated beneficiary of an account is changed to a member of the beneficiary's family. File 2006 taxes online See Members of the beneficiary's family , earlier. File 2006 taxes online Example. File 2006 taxes online Assume the same situation as in the last example. File 2006 taxes online Instead of closing his QTP and paying the distribution into his brother's QTP, Aaron could have instructed the trustee of his account to simply change the name of the beneficiary on his account to that of his brother.
