Myfreetax com S. Myfreetax com Department of Education. Myfreetax com It includes virtually all accredited public, nonprofit, and proprietary (privately owned profit-making) postsecondary institutions.

Myfreetax com Certain educational institutions located outside the United States also participate in the U. Myfreetax com S. Myfreetax com Department of Education's Federal Student Aid (FSA) programs. Myfreetax com Dependent for whom you claim an exemption. Myfreetax com 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. Myfreetax com Modified adjusted gross income (MAGI). Myfreetax com For most taxpayers, MAGI is adjusted gross income (AGI) as figured on their federal income tax return without taking into account this interest exclusion. Myfreetax com However, as discussed below, there may be other modifications. Myfreetax com MAGI when using Form 1040A. Myfreetax com 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). Myfreetax com MAGI when using Form 1040. Myfreetax com 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. Myfreetax com Use the worksheet in the instructions for line 9 of Form 8815 to figure your MAGI. Myfreetax com 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. Myfreetax com 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. Myfreetax com Enter the total on Form 8815, line 9, as your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI). Myfreetax com 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. Myfreetax com 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. Myfreetax com See Royalties included in MAGI under Education Savings Bond Program in Publication 550, chapter 1. Myfreetax com 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. Myfreetax com 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. Myfreetax com To determine the tax-free amount, multiply the interest part of the proceeds by a fraction. Myfreetax com The numerator (top part) of the fraction is the adjusted qualified education expenses (AQEE) you paid during the year. Myfreetax com The denominator (bottom part) of the fraction is the total proceeds you received during the year. Myfreetax com Example. Myfreetax com In February 2013, Mark and Joan Washington, a married couple, cashed a qualified series EE U. Myfreetax com S. Myfreetax com savings bond. Myfreetax com They received proceeds of $9,000, representing principal of $6,000 and interest of $3,000. Myfreetax com In 2013, they paid $7,650 of their daughter's college tuition. Myfreetax com 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. Myfreetax com Their MAGI for 2013 was $80,000. Myfreetax com $3,000 interest × $7,650 AQEE $9,000 proceeds = $2,550 tax-free interest They can exclude $2,550 of interest in 2013. Myfreetax com They must pay tax on the remaining $450 ($3,000 − $2,550) interest. Myfreetax com 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. Myfreetax com Claiming the Exclusion Use Form 8815 to figure your education savings bond interest exclusion. Myfreetax com Enter your exclusion on line 3 of Schedule B (Form 1040A or 1040), Interest and Ordinary Dividends. Myfreetax com Attach Form 8815 to your tax return.
