Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions 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. Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions 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. Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions 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)). Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions If your IRA distribution is equal to or less than your adjusted qualified education expenses, you are not subject to the 10% additional tax. Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions Example 1. Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions In 2013, Erin (age 32) took a year off from teaching to attend graduate school full-time. Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions She paid $5,800 of qualified education expenses from the following sources. Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions   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. Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions   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. Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions However, she must include the $500 taxable earnings in her gross income subject to income tax. Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions Example 2. Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions 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. Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions This must be included in her income subject to income tax. Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions The taxable part of Erin's IRA distribution ($1,000) is larger than her $800 AQEE. Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions 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). Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions She does not have to pay the 10% additional tax on the remaining $800 of her taxable distribution. Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions 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. Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions 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. Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions If you received an early distribution from your IRA, you must report the taxable earnings on Form 1040, line 15b (Form 1040NR, line 16b). Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions 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. Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions See the Instructions for Form 5329, Part I, for help in completing the form and entering the results on Form 1040 or 1040NR. Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions There are many other situations in which Form 5329 is required. Irs 1040ez 2013 form and instructions 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.
