1040ez 2014 forms 4. 1040ez 2014 forms   Student Loan Interest Deduction Table of Contents Introduction Student Loan Interest DefinedQualified Student Loan Qualified Education Expenses Include As Interest Do Not Include As Interest When Must Interest Be Paid Can You Claim the DeductionNo Double Benefit Allowed Figuring the DeductionEffect of the Amount of Your Income on the Amount of Your Deduction Which Worksheet To Use Claiming the Deduction Introduction Generally, personal interest you pay, other than certain mortgage interest, is not deductible on your tax return. 1040ez 2014 forms However, if your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) is less than $75,000 ($155,000 if filing a joint return) there is a special deduction allowed for paying interest on a student loan (also known as an education loan) used for higher education. 1040ez 2014 forms For most taxpayers, MAGI is the adjusted gross income as figured on their federal income tax return before subtracting any deduction for student loan interest. 1040ez 2014 forms This deduction can reduce the amount of your income subject to tax by up to $2,500 in 2013. 1040ez 2014 forms The student loan interest deduction is taken as an adjustment to income. 1040ez 2014 forms This means you can claim this deduction even if you do not itemize deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040). 1040ez 2014 forms This chapter explains: What type of loan interest you can deduct, Whether you can claim the deduction, What expenses you must have paid with the student loan, Who is an eligible student, How to figure the deduction, and How to claim the deduction. 1040ez 2014 forms Table 4-1. 1040ez 2014 forms Student Loan Interest Deduction at a Glance This table summarizes the features of the student loan interest deduction. 1040ez 2014 forms Do not rely on this table alone. 1040ez 2014 forms Refer to the text for complete details. 1040ez 2014 forms Feature   Description Maximum benefit   You can reduce your income subject to tax by up to $2,500. 1040ez 2014 forms Loan qualifications   Your student loan: •must have been taken out solely to pay qualified education expenses, and •cannot be from a related person or made under a qualified employer plan. 1040ez 2014 forms Student qualifications   The student must be: •you, your spouse, or your dependent, and  •enrolled at least half-time in a degree program. 1040ez 2014 forms Time limit on deduction   You can deduct interest paid during the remaining period of your student loan. 1040ez 2014 forms Limit on modified adjusted gross income (MAGI)   $155,000 if married filing a joint return; $75,000 if single, head of household, or qualifying widow(er). 1040ez 2014 forms Student Loan Interest Defined Student loan interest is interest you paid during the year on a qualified student loan. 1040ez 2014 forms It includes both required and voluntary interest payments. 1040ez 2014 forms Qualified Student Loan This is a loan you took out solely to pay qualified education expenses (defined later) that were: For you, your spouse, or a person who was your dependent when you took out the loan, Paid or incurred within a reasonable period of time before or after you took out the loan, and For education provided during an academic period for an eligible student. 1040ez 2014 forms Loans from the following sources are not qualified student loans. 1040ez 2014 forms A related person. 1040ez 2014 forms A qualified employer plan. 1040ez 2014 forms Your dependent. 1040ez 2014 forms   Generally, your dependent is someone who is either a: Qualifying child, or Qualifying relative. 1040ez 2014 forms You can find more information about dependents in Publication 501. 1040ez 2014 forms Exceptions. 1040ez 2014 forms   For purposes of the student loan interest deduction, there are the following exceptions to the general rules for dependents. 1040ez 2014 forms An individual can be your dependent even if you are the dependent of another taxpayer. 1040ez 2014 forms An individual can be your dependent even if the individual files a joint return with a spouse. 1040ez 2014 forms An individual can be your dependent even if the individual had gross income for the year that was equal to or more than the exemption amount for the year ($3,900 for 2013). 1040ez 2014 forms Reasonable period of time. 1040ez 2014 forms   Qualified education expenses are treated as paid or incurred within a reasonable period of time before or after you take out the loan if they are paid with the proceeds of student loans that are part of a federal postsecondary education loan program. 1040ez 2014 forms   Even if not paid with the proceeds of that type of loan, the expenses are treated as paid or incurred within a reasonable period of time if both of the following requirements are met. 1040ez 2014 forms The expenses relate to a specific academic period, and The loan proceeds are disbursed within a period that begins 90 days before the start of that academic period and ends 90 days after the end of that academic period. 1040ez 2014 forms   If neither of the above situations applies, the reasonable period of time usually is determined based on all the relevant facts and circumstances. 1040ez 2014 forms Academic period. 1040ez 2014 forms   An academic period includes a semester, trimester, quarter, or other period of study (such as a summer school session) as reasonably determined by an educational institution. 1040ez 2014 forms In the case of an educational institution that uses credit hours or clock hours and does not have academic terms, each payment period can be treated as an academic period. 1040ez 2014 forms Eligible student. 1040ez 2014 forms   This is a student who was enrolled at least half-time in a program leading to a degree, certificate, or other recognized educational credential. 1040ez 2014 forms Enrolled at least half-time. 1040ez 2014 forms   A student was enrolled at least half-time if the student was taking at least half the normal full-time work load for his or her course of study. 1040ez 2014 forms   The standard for what is half of the normal full-time work load is determined by each eligible educational institution. 1040ez 2014 forms However, the standard may not be lower than any of those established by the U. 1040ez 2014 forms S. 1040ez 2014 forms Department of Education under the Higher Education Act of 1965. 1040ez 2014 forms Related person. 1040ez 2014 forms   You cannot deduct interest on a loan you get from a related person. 1040ez 2014 forms Related persons include: Your spouse, Your brothers and sisters, Your half brothers and half sisters, Your ancestors (parents, grandparents, etc. 1040ez 2014 forms ), Your lineal descendants (children, grandchildren, etc. 1040ez 2014 forms ), and Certain corporations, partnerships, trusts, and exempt organizations. 1040ez 2014 forms Qualified employer plan. 1040ez 2014 forms   You cannot deduct interest on a loan made under a qualified employer plan or under a contract purchased under such a plan. 1040ez 2014 forms Qualified Education Expenses For purposes of the student loan interest deduction, these expenses are the total costs of attending an eligible educational institution, including graduate school. 1040ez 2014 forms They include amounts paid for the following items. 1040ez 2014 forms Tuition and fees. 1040ez 2014 forms Room and board. 1040ez 2014 forms Books, supplies, and equipment. 1040ez 2014 forms Other necessary expenses (such as transportation). 1040ez 2014 forms The cost of room and board qualifies only to the extent that it is not more than the greater of: The allowance for room and board, as determined by the eligible educational institution, that was included in the cost of attendance (for federal financial aid purposes) for a particular academic period and living arrangement of the student, or The actual amount charged if the student is residing in housing owned or operated by the eligible educational institution. 1040ez 2014 forms Eligible educational institution. 1040ez 2014 forms   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. 1040ez 2014 forms S. 1040ez 2014 forms Department of Education. 1040ez 2014 forms It includes virtually all accredited public, nonprofit, and proprietary (privately owned profit-making) postsecondary institutions. 1040ez 2014 forms   Certain educational institutions located outside the United States also participate in the U. 1040ez 2014 forms S. 1040ez 2014 forms Department of Education's Federal Student Aid (FSA) programs. 1040ez 2014 forms   For purposes of the student loan interest deduction, an eligible educational institution also includes an institution conducting an internship or residency program leading to a degree or certificate from an institution of higher education, a hospital, or a health care facility that offers postgraduate training. 1040ez 2014 forms   An educational institution must meet the above criteria only during the academic period(s) for which the student loan was incurred. 1040ez 2014 forms The deductibility of interest on the loan is not affected by the institution's subsequent loss of eligibility. 1040ez 2014 forms    The educational institution should be able to tell you if it is an eligible educational institution. 1040ez 2014 forms Adjustments to Qualified Education Expenses You must reduce your qualified education expenses by the total amount paid for them with the following tax-free items. 1040ez 2014 forms Employer-provided educational assistance. 1040ez 2014 forms See chapter 11, Employer-Provided Educational Assistance . 1040ez 2014 forms Tax-free distribution of earnings from a Coverdell education savings account (ESA). 1040ez 2014 forms See Tax-Free Distributions in chapter 7, Coverdell Education Savings Account. 1040ez 2014 forms Tax-free distribution of earnings from a qualified tuition program (QTP). 1040ez 2014 forms See Figuring the Taxable Portion of a Distribution in chapter 8, Qualified Tuition Program. 1040ez 2014 forms U. 1040ez 2014 forms S. 1040ez 2014 forms savings bond interest that you exclude from income because it is used to pay qualified education expenses. 1040ez 2014 forms See chapter 10, Education Savings Bond Program . 1040ez 2014 forms The tax-free part of scholarships and fellowships. 1040ez 2014 forms See Tax-Free Scholarships and Fellowships in chapter 1, Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, and Tuition Reductions. 1040ez 2014 forms Veterans' educational assistance. 1040ez 2014 forms See Veterans' Benefits in chapter 1, Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, and Tuition Reductions. 1040ez 2014 forms Any other nontaxable (tax-free) payments (other than gifts or inheritances) received as educational assistance. 1040ez 2014 forms Include As Interest In addition to simple interest on the loan, if all other requirements are met, the items discussed below can be student loan interest. 1040ez 2014 forms Loan origination fee. 1040ez 2014 forms   In general, this is a one-time fee charged by the lender when a loan is made. 1040ez 2014 forms To be deductible as interest, a loan origination fee must be for the use of money rather than for property or services (such as commitment fees or processing costs) provided by the lender. 1040ez 2014 forms A loan origination fee treated as interest accrues over the term of the loan. 1040ez 2014 forms   Loan origination fees were not required to be reported on Form 1098-E, Student Loan Interest Statement, for loans made before September 1, 2004. 1040ez 2014 forms If loan origination fees are not included in the amount reported on your Form 1098-E, you can use any reasonable method to allocate the loan origination fees over the term of the loan. 1040ez 2014 forms The method shown in the example below allocates equal portions of the loan origination fee to each payment required under the terms of the loan. 1040ez 2014 forms A method that results in the double deduction of the same portion of a loan origination fee would not be reasonable. 1040ez 2014 forms Example. 1040ez 2014 forms In August 2004, Bill took out a student loan for $16,000 to pay the tuition for his senior year of college. 1040ez 2014 forms The lender charged a 3% loan origination fee ($480) that was withheld from the funds Bill received. 1040ez 2014 forms Bill began making payments on his student loan in 2013. 1040ez 2014 forms Because the loan origination fee was not included in his 2013 Form 1098-E, Bill can use any reasonable method to allocate that fee over the term of the loan. 1040ez 2014 forms Bill's loan is payable in 120 equal monthly payments. 1040ez 2014 forms He allocates the $480 fee equally over the total number of payments ($480 ÷ 120 months = $4 per month). 1040ez 2014 forms Bill made 7 payments in 2013, so he paid $28 ($4 × 7) of interest attributable to the loan origination fee. 1040ez 2014 forms To determine his student loan interest deduction, he will add the $28 to the amount of other interest reported to him on Form 1098-E. 1040ez 2014 forms Capitalized interest. 1040ez 2014 forms   This is unpaid interest on a student loan that is added by the lender to the outstanding principal balance of the loan. 1040ez 2014 forms Capitalized interest is treated as interest for tax purposes and is deductible as payments of principal are made on the loan. 1040ez 2014 forms No deduction for capitalized interest is allowed in a year in which no loan payments were made. 1040ez 2014 forms Interest on revolving lines of credit. 1040ez 2014 forms   This interest, which includes interest on credit card debt, is student loan interest if the borrower uses the line of credit (credit card) only to pay qualified education expenses. 1040ez 2014 forms See Qualified Education Expenses , earlier. 1040ez 2014 forms Interest on refinanced student loans. 1040ez 2014 forms   This includes interest on both: Consolidated loans—loans used to refinance more than one student loan of the same borrower, and Collapsed loans—two or more loans of the same borrower that are treated by both the lender and the borrower as one loan. 1040ez 2014 forms    If you refinance a qualified student loan for more than your original loan and you use the additional amount for any purpose other than qualified education expenses, you cannot deduct any interest paid on the refinanced loan. 1040ez 2014 forms Voluntary interest payments. 1040ez 2014 forms   These are payments made on a qualified student loan during a period when interest payments are not required, such as when the borrower has been granted a deferment or the loan has not yet entered repayment status. 1040ez 2014 forms Example. 1040ez 2014 forms The payments on Roger's student loan were scheduled to begin in June 2012, 6 months after he graduated from college. 1040ez 2014 forms He began making payments as required. 1040ez 2014 forms In September 2013, Roger enrolled in graduate school on a full-time basis. 1040ez 2014 forms He applied for and was granted deferment of his loan payments while in graduate school. 1040ez 2014 forms Wanting to pay down his student loan as much as possible, he made loan payments in October and November 2013. 1040ez 2014 forms Even though these were voluntary (not required) payments, Roger can deduct the interest paid in October and November. 1040ez 2014 forms Allocating Payments Between Interest and Principal The allocation of payments between interest and principal for tax purposes might not be the same as the allocation shown on the Form 1098-E or other statement you receive from the lender or loan servicer. 1040ez 2014 forms To make the allocation for tax purposes, a payment generally applies first to stated interest that remains unpaid as of the date the payment is due, second to any loan origination fees allocable to the payment, third to any capitalized interest that remains unpaid as of the date the payment is due, and fourth to the outstanding principal. 1040ez 2014 forms Example. 1040ez 2014 forms In August 2012, Peg took out a $10,000 student loan to pay the tuition for her senior year of college. 1040ez 2014 forms The lender charged a 3% loan origination fee ($300) that was withheld from the funds Peg received. 1040ez 2014 forms The interest (5% simple) on this loan accrued while she completed her senior year and for 6 months after she graduated. 1040ez 2014 forms At the end of that period, the lender determined the amount to be repaid by capitalizing all accrued but unpaid interest ($625 interest accrued from August 2012 through October 2013) and adding it to the outstanding principal balance of the loan. 1040ez 2014 forms The loan is payable over 60 months, with a payment of $200. 1040ez 2014 forms 51 due on the first of each month, beginning November 2013. 1040ez 2014 forms Peg did not receive a Form 1098-E for 2013 from her lender because the amount of interest she paid did not require the lender to issue an information return. 1040ez 2014 forms However, she did receive an account statement from the lender that showed the following 2013 payments on her outstanding loan of $10,625 ($10,000 principal + $625 accrued but unpaid interest). 1040ez 2014 forms Payment Date   Payment   Stated Interest   Principal November 2013   $200. 1040ez 2014 forms 51   $44. 1040ez 2014 forms 27   $156. 1040ez 2014 forms 24 December 2013   $200. 1040ez 2014 forms 51   $43. 1040ez 2014 forms 62   $156. 1040ez 2014 forms 89 Totals   $401. 1040ez 2014 forms 02   $87. 1040ez 2014 forms 89   $313. 1040ez 2014 forms 13 To determine the amount of interest that could be deducted on the loan for 2013, Peg starts with the total amount of stated interest she paid, $87. 1040ez 2014 forms 89. 1040ez 2014 forms Next, she allocates the loan origination fee over the term of the loan ($300 ÷ 60 months = $5 per month). 1040ez 2014 forms A total of $10 ($5 of each of the two principal payments) should be treated as interest for tax purposes. 1040ez 2014 forms Peg then applies the unpaid capitalized interest ($625) to the two principal payments in the order in which they were made, and determines that the remaining amount of principal of both payments is treated as interest for tax purposes. 1040ez 2014 forms Assuming that Peg qualifies to take the student loan interest deduction, she can deduct $401. 1040ez 2014 forms 02 ($87. 1040ez 2014 forms 89 + $10 + $303. 1040ez 2014 forms 13). 1040ez 2014 forms For 2014, Peg will continue to allocate $5 of the loan origination fee to the principal portion of each monthly payment she makes and treat that amount as interest for tax purposes. 1040ez 2014 forms She also will apply the remaining amount of capitalized interest ($625 − $303. 1040ez 2014 forms 13 = $321. 1040ez 2014 forms 87) to the principal payments in the order in which they are made until the balance is zero, and treat those amounts as interest for tax purposes. 1040ez 2014 forms Do Not Include As Interest You cannot claim a student loan interest deduction for any of the following items. 1040ez 2014 forms Interest you paid on a loan if, under the terms of the loan, you are not legally obligated to make interest payments. 1040ez 2014 forms Loan origination fees that are payments for property or services provided by the lender, such as commitment fees or processing costs. 1040ez 2014 forms Interest you paid on a loan to the extent payments were made through your participation in the National Health Service Corps Loan Repayment Program (the “NHSC Loan Repayment Program”) or certain other loan repayment assistance programs. 1040ez 2014 forms For more information, see Student Loan Repayment Assistance in chapter 5, Student Loan Cancellations and Repayment Assistance. 1040ez 2014 forms When Must Interest Be Paid You can deduct all interest you paid during the year on your student loan, including voluntary payments, until the loan is paid off. 1040ez 2014 forms Can You Claim the Deduction Generally, you can claim the deduction if all of the following requirements are met. 1040ez 2014 forms Your filing status is any filing status except married filing separately. 1040ez 2014 forms No one else is claiming an exemption for you on his or her tax return. 1040ez 2014 forms You are legally obligated to pay interest on a qualified student loan. 1040ez 2014 forms You paid interest on a qualified student loan. 1040ez 2014 forms Claiming an exemption for you. 1040ez 2014 forms   Another taxpayer is claiming an exemption for you if he or she lists your name and other required information on his or her Form 1040 (or Form 1040A), line 6c, or Form 1040NR, line 7c. 1040ez 2014 forms Example 1. 1040ez 2014 forms During 2013, Josh paid $600 interest on his qualified student loan. 1040ez 2014 forms Only he is legally obligated to make the payments. 1040ez 2014 forms No one claimed an exemption for Josh for 2013. 1040ez 2014 forms Assuming all other requirements are met, Josh can deduct the $600 of interest he paid on his 2013 Form 1040 or 1040A. 1040ez 2014 forms Example 2. 1040ez 2014 forms During 2013, Jo paid $1,100 interest on her qualified student loan. 1040ez 2014 forms Only she is legally obligated to make the payments. 1040ez 2014 forms Jo's parents claimed an exemption for her on their 2013 tax return. 1040ez 2014 forms In this case, neither Jo nor her parents may deduct the student loan interest Jo paid in 2013. 1040ez 2014 forms Interest paid by others. 1040ez 2014 forms   If you are the person legally obligated to make interest payments and someone else makes a payment of interest on your behalf, you are treated as receiving the payments from the other person and, in turn, paying the interest. 1040ez 2014 forms Example 1. 1040ez 2014 forms Darla obtained a qualified student loan to attend college. 1040ez 2014 forms After Darla's graduation from college, she worked as an intern for a nonprofit organization. 1040ez 2014 forms As part of the internship program, the nonprofit organization made an interest payment on behalf of Darla. 1040ez 2014 forms This payment was treated as additional compensation and reported in box 1 of her Form W-2. 1040ez 2014 forms Assuming all other qualifications are met, Darla can deduct this payment of interest on her tax return. 1040ez 2014 forms Example 2. 1040ez 2014 forms Ethan obtained a qualified student loan to attend college. 1040ez 2014 forms After graduating from college, the first monthly payment on his loan was due in December. 1040ez 2014 forms As a gift, Ethan's mother made this payment for him. 1040ez 2014 forms No one is claiming a dependency exemption for Ethan on his or her tax return. 1040ez 2014 forms Assuming all other qualifications are met, Ethan can deduct this payment of interest on his tax return. 1040ez 2014 forms No Double Benefit Allowed You cannot deduct as interest on a student loan any amount that is an allowable deduction under any other provision of the tax law (for example, as home mortgage interest). 1040ez 2014 forms Figuring the Deduction Your student loan interest deduction for 2013 is generally the smaller of: $2,500, or The interest you paid in 2013. 1040ez 2014 forms However, the amount determined above may be gradually reduced (phased out) or eliminated based on your filing status and MAGI as explained below. 1040ez 2014 forms You can use Worksheet 4-1. 1040ez 2014 forms Student Loan Interest Deduction Worksheet (at the end of this chapter) to figure both your MAGI and your deduction. 1040ez 2014 forms Form 1098-E. 1040ez 2014 forms   To help you figure your student loan interest deduction, you should receive Form 1098-E. 1040ez 2014 forms Generally, an institution (such as a bank or governmental agency) that received interest payments of $600 or more during 2013 on one or more qualified student loans must send Form 1098-E (or acceptable substitute) to each borrower by January 31, 2014. 1040ez 2014 forms   For qualified student loans taken out before September 1, 2004, the institution is required to include on Form 1098-E only payments of stated interest. 1040ez 2014 forms Other interest payments, such as certain loan origination fees and capitalized interest, may not appear on the form you receive. 1040ez 2014 forms However, if you pay qualifying interest that is not
