File taxes online for free   Education Exception to Additional Tax on Early IRA Distributions Table of Contents Introduction Who Is Eligible Figuring the Amount Not Subject to the 10% Tax Reporting Early Distributions Introduction Generally, if you take a distribution from your IRA before you reach age 59½, you must pay a 10% additional tax on the early distribution. File taxes online for free This applies to any IRA you own, whether it is a traditional IRA (including a SEP-IRA), a Roth IRA, or a SIMPLE IRA. File taxes online for free The additional tax on an early distribution from a SIMPLE IRA may be as high as 25%.

File taxes online for free Generally, if the taxable part of the distribution is less than or equal to the adjusted qualified education expenses (AQEE), none of the distribution is subject to the additional tax. File taxes online for free If the taxable part of the distribution is more than the AQEE, only the excess is subject to the additional tax. File taxes online for free Who Is Eligible You can take a distribution from your IRA before you reach age 59½ and not have to pay the 10% additional tax if, for the year of the distribution, you pay qualified education expenses for: yourself, your spouse, or your or your spouse's child, foster child, adopted child, or descendant of any of them.

File taxes online for free Figuring the Amount Not Subject to the 10% Tax To determine the amount of your distribution that is not subject to the 10% additional tax, first figure your adjusted qualified education expenses. File taxes online for free You do this by reducing your total qualified education expenses by any tax-free educational assistance, which includes: Expenses used to figure the tax-free portion of distributions from a Coverdell education savings account (ESA) (see Distributions in chapter 7, Coverdell Education Savings Account), The tax-free part of scholarships and fellowships (see Tax-Free Scholarships and Fellowships 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), 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 ), and Any other nontaxable (tax-free) payments (other than gifts or inheritances) received as educational assistance. File taxes online for free Do not reduce the qualified education expenses by amounts paid with funds the student receives as: Payment for services, such as wages, A loan, A gift, An inheritance given to either the student or the individual making the withdrawal, or A withdrawal from personal savings (including savings from a qualified tuition program (QTP)). File taxes online for free If your IRA distribution is equal to or less than your adjusted qualified education expenses, you are not subject to the 10% additional tax. File taxes online for free Example 1. File taxes online for free In 2013, Erin (age 32) took a year off from teaching to attend graduate school full-time. File taxes online for free She paid $5,800 of qualified education expenses from the following sources. File taxes online for free   Employer-provided educational assistance  (tax free) $5,000     Early distribution from IRA (includes $500 taxable earnings) 3,200           Before Erin can determine if she must pay the 10% additional tax on her IRA distribution, she must reduce her total qualified education expenses. File taxes online for free   Total qualified education expenses $5,800     Minus: Tax-free educational assistance −5,000     Equals: Adjusted qualified  education expenses (AQEE) $ 800   Because Erin's AQEE ($800) are more than the taxable portion of her IRA distribution ($500), she does not have to pay the 10% additional tax on any part of this distribution. File taxes online for free However, she must include the $500 taxable earnings in her gross income subject to income tax. File taxes online for free Example 2. File taxes online for free Assume the same facts as in Example 1 , except that Erin deducted some of the contributions to her IRA, so the taxable part of her early distribution is higher by $1,000. File taxes online for free This must be included in her income subject to income tax. File taxes online for free The taxable part of Erin's IRA distribution ($1,000) is larger than her $800 AQEE. File taxes online for free Therefore, she must pay the 10% additional tax on $200, the taxable part of her distribution ($1,000) that is more than her qualified education expenses ($800). File taxes online for free She does not have to pay the 10% additional tax on the remaining $800 of her taxable distribution. File taxes online for free Reporting Early Distributions By January 31, 2014, the payer of your IRA distribution should send you Form 1099-R, Distributions From Pensions, Annuities, Retirement or Profit-Sharing Plans, IRAs, Insurance Contracts, etc. File taxes online for free The information on this form will help you determine how much of your distribution is taxable for income tax purposes and how much is subject to the 10% additional tax. File taxes online for free If you received an early distribution from your IRA, you must report the taxable earnings on Form 1040, line 15b (Form 1040NR, line 16b). File taxes online for free Then, if you qualify for an exception for qualified higher education expenses, you must file Form 5329 to show how much, if any, of your early distribution is subject to the 10% additional tax. File taxes online for free See the Instructions for Form 5329, Part I, for help in completing the form and entering the results on Form 1040 or 1040NR. File taxes online for free There are many other situations in which Form 5329 is required. File taxes online for free If, during 2013, you had other distributions from IRAs or qualified retirement plans, or have made excess contributions to certain tax-favored accounts, see the instructions for line 58 (Form 1040) or line 56 (Form 1040NR) to determine if you must file Form 5329.
