Free efile state taxes However, as discussed below, there may be other modifications. Free efile state taxes MAGI when using Form 1040A. Free efile state taxes   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 efile state taxes MAGI when using Form 1040. Free efile state taxes   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 efile state taxes    Use the worksheet in the instructions for line 9 of Form 8815 to figure your MAGI. Free efile state taxes 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 efile state taxes 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 efile state taxes Enter the total on Form 8815, line 9, as your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI). Free efile state taxes    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 efile state taxes 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 efile state taxes See Royalties included in MAGI under Education Savings Bond Program in Publication 550, chapter 1. Free efile state taxes 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 efile state taxes 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 efile state taxes To determine the tax-free amount, multiply the interest part of the proceeds by a fraction. Free efile state taxes The numerator (top part) of the fraction is the adjusted qualified education expenses (AQEE) you paid during the year. Free efile state taxes The denominator (bottom part) of the fraction is the total proceeds you received during the year. Free efile state taxes Example. Free efile state taxes In February 2013, Mark and Joan Washington, a married couple, cashed a qualified series EE U. Free efile state taxes S. Free efile state taxes savings bond. Free efile state taxes They received proceeds of $9,000, representing principal of $6,000 and interest of $3,000. Free efile state taxes In 2013, they paid $7,650 of their daughter's college tuition. Free efile state taxes 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 efile state taxes Their MAGI for 2013 was $80,000. Free efile state taxes   $3,000 interest × $7,650 AQEE  $9,000 proceeds = $2,550 tax-free interest   They can exclude $2,550 of interest in 2013. Free efile state taxes They must pay tax on the remaining $450 ($3,000 − $2,550) interest. Free efile state taxes 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 efile state taxes Claiming the Exclusion Use Form 8815 to figure your education savings bond interest exclusion. Free efile state taxes Enter your exclusion on line 3 of Schedule B (Form 1040A or 1040), Interest and Ordinary Dividends. Free efile state taxes Attach Form 8815 to your tax return.
