Free state and federal tax efile Any expenses used in figuring the American opportunity and lifetime learning credits. Free state and federal tax efile See What Expenses Qualify in chapter 2, American Opportunity Credit, and What Expenses Qualify in chapter 3, Lifetime Learning Credit, for more information. Free state and federal tax efile Eligible educational institution. Free state and federal tax efile   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. Free state and federal tax efile S. Free state and federal tax efile Department of Education. Free state and federal tax efile It includes virtually all accredited public, nonprofit, and proprietary (privately owned profit-making) postsecondary institutions. Free state and federal tax efile The educational institution should be able to tell you if it is an eligible educational institution. Free state and federal tax efile   Certain educational institutions located outside the United States also participate in the U. Free state and federal tax efile S. Free state and federal tax efile Department of Education's Federal Student Aid (FSA) programs. Free state and federal tax efile Dependent for whom you claim an exemption. Free state and federal tax efile   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. Free state and federal tax efile Modified adjusted gross income (MAGI). Free state and federal tax efile   For most taxpayers, MAGI is adjusted gross income (AGI) as figured on their federal income tax return without taking into account this interest exclusion. Free state and federal tax efile However, as discussed below, there may be other modifications. Free state and federal tax efile MAGI when using Form 1040A. Free state and federal tax efile   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). Free state and federal tax efile MAGI when using Form 1040. Free state and federal tax efile   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. Free state and federal tax efile    Use the worksheet in the instructions for line 9 of Form 8815 to figure your MAGI. Free state and federal tax efile 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. Free state and federal tax efile 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. Free state and federal tax efile Enter the total on Form 8815, line 9, as your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI). Free state and federal tax efile    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. Free state and federal tax efile 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. Free state and federal tax efile See Royalties included in MAGI under Education Savings Bond Program in Publication 550, chapter 1. Free state and federal tax efile 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. Free state and federal tax efile 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. Free state and federal tax efile To determine the tax-free amount, multiply the interest part of the proceeds by a fraction. Free state and federal tax efile The numerator (top part) of the fraction is the adjusted qualified education expenses (AQEE) you paid during the year. Free state and federal tax efile The denominator (bottom part) of the fraction is the total proceeds you received during the year. Free state and federal tax efile Example. Free state and federal tax efile In February 2013, Mark and Joan Washington, a married couple, cashed a qualified series EE U. Free state and federal tax efile S. Free state and federal tax efile savings bond. Free state and federal tax efile They received proceeds of $9,000, representing principal of $6,000 and interest of $3,000. Free state and federal tax efile In 2013, they paid $7,650 of their daughter's college tuition. Free state and federal tax efile 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. Free state and federal tax efile Their MAGI for 2013 was $80,000. Free state and federal tax efile   $3,000 interest × $7,650 AQEE  $9,000 proceeds = $2,550 tax-free interest   They can exclude $2,550 of interest in 2013. Free state and federal tax efile They must pay tax on the remaining $450 ($3,000 − $2,550) interest. Free state and federal tax efile 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. Free state and federal tax efile Claiming the Exclusion Use Form 8815 to figure your education savings bond interest exclusion. Free state and federal tax efile Enter your exclusion on line 3 of Schedule B (Form 1040A or 1040), Interest and Ordinary Dividends. Free state and federal tax efile Attach Form 8815 to your tax return. Free state and federal tax efile Prev  Up  Next   Home   More Online Publications
