The 1040 Ez Instructions

1040 ez instructions Publication 970 - Additional Material Table of Contents AppendicesAppendix A. 1040 ez instructions Illustrated Example of Education Credits Glossary Appendices The following appendices are provided to help you claim the education benefits that will give you the lowest tax. 1040 ez instructions Appendix A—An illustrated example of education credits, including a filled-in Form 8863 showing how to claim both the American opportunity credit and lifetime learning credit for 2013. 1040 ez instructions Appendix B—A chart summarizing some of the major differences between the education tax benefits discussed in this publication. 1040 ez instructions It is intended only as a guide. 1040 ez instructions Look in this publication for more complete information. 1040 ez instructions   Appendix A. 1040 ez instructions Illustrated Example of Education Credits Dave and Valerie Jones are married and on their 2013 joint tax return they claim exemptions for their two dependent children, Sean (age 21, social security number: 000-00-0001) and Carey (age 18, social security number: 000–00–0002). 1040 ez instructions Their modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) on Form 1040, line 38 is $110,000. 1040 ez instructions Because Dave and Valerie have unusually high itemized deductions, their taxable income is $10,000 and their tax before credits is $1,000. 1040 ez instructions Sean enrolled as a full-time graduate student in August 2013 at California State College. 1040 ez instructions He graduated with his bachelor's degree in 2012 and did not attend school from January 2013 through July 2013. 1040 ez instructions His parents claimed the Hope Scholarship Credit for Sean for 2008 and the American opportunity credit for Sean for 2010, 2011, and 2012. 1040 ez instructions Carey enrolled full time as a freshman at the same college in January 2013 to begin working on her bachelor's degree. 1040 ez instructions In 2013, Dave and Valerie paid $7,000 in tuition for Sean and $8,500 in tuition for Carey. 1040 ez instructions California State College issued two Forms 1098-T, one for Sean and one for Carey, and sent them to the Joneses' residence. 1040 ez instructions California State College reports amounts billed in 2013 instead of amounts paid during 2013. 1040 ez instructions In completing Form 8863, the Joneses use the amounts they paid. 1040 ez instructions Neither Sean nor Carey has been convicted of a felony for possession or distribution of a controlled substance before the end of 2013. 1040 ez instructions Dave and Valerie figure their education credits by completing Form 8863. 1040 ez instructions They begin Form 8863 on page 2 before completing Part I on page 1. 1040 ez instructions Because the Joneses have two eligible students, they will complete page 2 twice, once for their son, Sean, and once for their daughter, Carey. 1040 ez instructions The Joneses decide to complete Part III for Carey first, as shown later. 1040 ez instructions They carry over the amount of $2,500 entered on Part III, line 30, to Part I, line 1. 1040 ez instructions The Joneses complete a separate Part III for their son Sean. 1040 ez instructions They check the “Yes” box on line 23, determine that Sean is not eligible for the American opportunity credit, and go to line 31 as instructed. 1040 ez instructions They figure their line 31 adjusted qualified education expenses for Sean to be $7,000. 1040 ez instructions Once they have completed Part III for each student, they figure their credits. 1040 ez instructions The Joneses figure their refundable American opportunity credit of $1,000 by completing Form 8863, Part I, lines 1 through 8. 1040 ez instructions They enter the amount from line 8, $1,000, on line 66 of their Form 1040. 1040 ez instructions The Joneses enter $7,000 on Part II, line 10, of Form 8863 and figure their tentative lifetime learning credit for 2013 to be $1,400 (line 12). 1040 ez instructions They cannot claim the full amount because their MAGI of $110,000 is greater than $107,000. 1040 ez instructions They enter the reduced amount of $1,190 (figured on Part II, line 18) on the Credit Limit Worksheet, line 1. 1040 ez instructions The $1,190 is added to their nonrefundable American opportunity credit ($1,500 on line 2 of the Credit Limit Worksheet) for a total nonrefundable credit of $2,690. 1040 ez instructions The Joneses enter $1,000 on line 7 of the Credit Limit Worksheet, which is the smaller of their tax from line 46 of their Form 1040 (which is $1,000) or the $2,690 on line 3 of the Credit Limit Worksheet. 1040 ez instructions They enter $1,000 on line 19, Part II of Form 8863 and on line 49 of Form 1040. 1040 ez instructions This image is too large to be displayed
