State tax return only For most taxpayers, MAGI is the adjusted gross income as figured on their federal income tax return. State tax return only There is no limit on the number of separate Coverdell ESAs that can be established for a designated beneficiary. State tax return only However, total contributions for the beneficiary in any year cannot be more than $2,000, no matter how many accounts have been established. State tax return only See Contributions , later. State tax return only This benefit applies not only to higher education expenses, but also to elementary and secondary education expenses. State tax return only What is the tax benefit of the Coverdell ESA. State tax return only   Contributions to a Coverdell ESA are not deductible, but amounts deposited in the account grow tax free until distributed. State tax return only   If, for a year, distributions from an account are not more than a designated beneficiary's qualified education expenses at an eligible educational institution, the beneficiary will not owe tax on the distributions. State tax return only See Tax-Free Distributions , later. State tax return only    Table 7-1 summarizes the main features of the Coverdell ESA. State tax return only Table 7-1. State tax return only Coverdell ESA at a Glance Do not rely on this table alone. State tax return only It provides only general highlights.

State tax return only   A contribution to a QTP is a qualified education expense if the contribution is on behalf of the designated beneficiary of the Coverdell ESA. State tax return only In the case of a change in beneficiary, this is a qualified expense only if the new beneficiary is a family member of that designated beneficiary. State tax return only See chapter 8, Qualified Tuition Program .

State tax return only As shown in the following list, to be qualified, some of the expenses must be required by the school and some must be incurred by students who are enrolled at least half-time. State tax return only The following expenses must be required for enrollment or attendance of a designated beneficiary at an eligible postsecondary school. State tax return only Tuition and fees. State tax return only Books, supplies, and equipment. State tax return only Expenses for special needs services needed by a special needs beneficiary must be incurred in connection with enrollment or attendance at an eligible postsecondary school. State tax return only Expenses for room and board must be incurred by students who are enrolled at least half-time (defined below). State tax return only The expense for room and board qualifies only to the extent that it is not more than the greater of the following two amounts. State tax return only The allowance for room and board, as determined by the school, that was included in the cost of attendance (for federal financial aid purposes) for a particular academic period and living arrangement of the student. State tax return only The actual amount charged if the student is residing in housing owned or operated by the school. State tax return only Half-time student.

State tax return only Room and board. State tax return only Uniforms. State tax return only Transportation. State tax return only Supplementary items and services (including extended day programs). State tax return only The purchase of computer technology, equipment, or Internet access and related services is a qualified elementary and secondary education expense if it is to be used by the beneficiary and the beneficiary's family during any of the years the beneficiary is in elementary or secondary school. State tax return only (This does not include expenses for computer software designed for sports, games, or hobbies unless the software is predominantly educational in nature. State tax return only ) Contributions Any individual (including the designated beneficiary) can contribute to a Coverdell ESA if the individual's MAGI (defined later under Contribution Limits ) for the year is less than $110,000. State tax return only For individuals filing joint returns, that amount is $220,000. State tax return only Organizations, such as corporations and trusts, can also contribute to Coverdell ESAs. State tax return only There is no requirement that an organization's income be below a certain level. State tax return only Contributions must meet all of the following requirements. State tax return only They must be in cash. State tax return only They cannot be made after the beneficiary reaches age 18, unless the beneficiary is a special needs beneficiary. State tax return only They must be made by the due date of the contributor's tax return (not including extensions). State tax return only Contributions can be made to one or several Coverdell ESAs for the same designated beneficiary provided that the total contributions are not more than the contribution limits (defined later) for a year. State tax return only Contributions can be made, without penalty, to both a Coverdell ESA and a QTP in the same year for the same beneficiary. State tax return only Table 7-2 summarizes many of the features of contributing to a Coverdell ESA. State tax return only When contributions considered made. State tax return only   Contributions made to a Coverdell ESA for the preceding tax year are considered to have been made on the last day of the preceding year. State tax return only They must be made by the due date (not including extensions) for filing your return for the preceding year. State tax return only   For example, if you make a contribution to a Coverdell ESA in February 2014, and you designate it as a contribution for 2013, you are considered to have made that contribution on December 31, 2013. State tax return only Contribution Limits There are two yearly limits: One on the total amount that can be contributed for each designated beneficiary in any year, and One on the amount that any individual can contribute for any one designated beneficiary for a year. State tax return only Limit for each designated beneficiary. State tax return only   For 2013, the total of all contributions to all Coverdell ESAs set up for the benefit of any one designated beneficiary cannot be more than $2,000. State tax return only This includes contributions (other than rollovers) to all the beneficiary's Coverdell ESAs from all sources. State tax return only Rollovers are discussed under Rollovers and Other Transfers , later. State tax return only Example. State tax return only When Maria Luna was born in 2012, three separate Coverdell ESAs were set up for her, one by her parents, one by her grandfather, and one by her aunt. State tax return only In 2013, the total of all contributions to Maria's three Coverdell ESAs cannot be more than $2,000. State tax return only For example, if her grandfather contributed $2,000 to one of her Coverdell ESAs, no one else could contribute to any of her three accounts. State tax return only Or, if her parents contributed $1,000 and her aunt $600, her grandfather or someone else could contribute no more than $400. State tax return only These contributions could be put into any of Maria's Coverdell ESA accounts. State tax return only Limit for each contributor. State tax return only   Generally, you can contribute up to $2,000 for each designated beneficiary for 2013. State tax return only This is the most you can contribute for the benefit of any one beneficiary for the year, regardless of the number of Coverdell ESAs set up for the beneficiary. State tax return only Example. State tax return only The facts are the same as in the previous example except that Maria Luna's older brother, Edgar, also has a Coverdell ESA. State tax return only If their grandfather contributed $2,000 to Maria's Coverdell ESA in 2013, he could also contribute $2,000 to Edgar's Coverdell ESA. State tax return only Reduced limit. State tax return only   Your contribution limit may be reduced. State tax return only If your MAGI (defined on this page) is between $95,000 and $110,000 (between $190,000 and $220,000 if filing a joint return), the $2,000 limit for each designated beneficiary is gradually reduced (see Figuring the limit , later). State tax return only If your MAGI is $110,000 or more ($220,000 or more if filing a joint return), you cannot contribute to anyone's Coverdell ESA. State tax return only Table 7-2. State tax return only Coverdell ESA Contributions at a Glance Do not rely on this table alone. State tax return only It provides only general highlights. State tax return only See the text for more complete explanations. State tax return only Question Answer Are contributions deductible? No. State tax return only What is the annual contribution limit per designated beneficiary? $2,000 for each designated beneficiary. State tax return only What if more than one Coverdell ESA has been opened for the same designated beneficiary? The annual contribution limit is $2,000 for each beneficiary, no matter how many Coverdell ESAs are set up for that beneficiary. State tax return only What if more than one individual makes contributions for the same designated beneficiary? The annual contribution limit is $2,000 per beneficiary, no matter how many individuals contribute. State tax return only Can contributions other than cash be made to a Coverdell ESA? No. State tax return only When must contributions stop? No contributions can be made to a beneficiary's Coverdell ESA after he or she reaches age 18, unless the beneficiary is a special needs beneficiary. State tax return only Modified adjusted gross income (MAGI). State tax return only   For most taxpayers, MAGI is adjusted gross income (AGI) as figured on their federal income tax return. State tax return only MAGI when using Form 1040A. State tax return only   If you file Form 1040A, your MAGI is the AGI on line 22 of that form. State tax return only MAGI when using Form 1040. State tax return only   If you file Form 1040, your MAGI is the AGI on line 38 of that form, 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, and Exclusion of income by bona fide residents of Puerto Rico. State tax return only MAGI when using Form 1040NR. State tax return only   If you file Form 1040NR, your MAGI is the AGI on line 36 of that form. State tax return only MAGI when using Form 1040NR-EZ. State tax return only   If you file Form 1040NR-EZ, your MAGI is the AGI on line 10 of that form. State tax return only   If you have any of these adjustments, you can use Worksheet 7-1. State tax return only MAGI for a Coverdell ESA , later, to figure your MAGI for Form 1040. State tax return only Worksheet 7-1. State tax return only MAGI for a Coverdell ESA 1.

State tax return only    To figure the limit on the amount you can contribute for each designated beneficiary, multiply $2,000 by a fraction. State tax return only The numerator (top number) is your MAGI minus $95,000 ($190,000 if filing a joint return). State tax return only The denominator (bottom number) is $15,000 ($30,000 if filing a joint return). State tax return only Subtract the result from $2,000. State tax return only This is the amount you can contribute for each beneficiary. State tax return only You can use Worksheet 7-2.

State tax return only 1,800 Note: The total Coverdell ESA contributions from all sources for the designated beneficiary during the tax year may not exceed $2,000. State tax return only Additional Tax on Excess Contributions The beneficiary must pay a 6% excise tax each year on excess contributions that are in a Coverdell ESA at the end of the year. State tax return only Excess contributions are the total of the following two amounts. State tax return only Contributions to any designated beneficiary's Coverdell ESA for the year that are more than $2,000 (or, if less, the total of each contributor's limit for the year, as discussed earlier). State tax return only Excess contributions for the preceding year, reduced by the total of the following two amounts: Distributions (other than those rolled over as discussed later) during the year, and The contribution limit for the current year minus the amount contributed for the current year. State tax return only Exceptions. State tax return only   The excise tax does not apply if excess contributions made during 2013 (and any earnings on them) are distributed before the first day of the sixth month of the following tax year (June 1, 2014, for a calendar year taxpayer). State tax return only   However, you must include the distributed earnings in gross income for the year in which the excess contribution was made. State tax return only You should receive Form 1099-Q, Payments From Qualified Education Programs, from each institution from which excess contributions were distributed. State tax return only Box 2 of that form will show the amount of earnings on your excess contributions. State tax return only Code “2” or “3” entered in the blank box below boxes 5 and 6 indicate the year in which the earnings are taxable. State tax return only See Instructions for Recipient on the back of copy B of your Form 1099-Q. State tax return only Enter the amount of earnings on line 21 of Form 1040 (or Form 1040NR) for the applicable tax year. State tax return only For more information, see Taxable Distributions , later. State tax return only   The excise tax does not apply to any rollover contribution. State tax return only Note. State tax return only Contributions made in one year for the preceding tax year are considered to have been made on the last day of the preceding year. State tax return only Example. State tax return only In 2012, Greta's parents and grandparents contributed a total of $2,300 to Greta's Coverdell ESA— an excess contribution of $300. State tax return only Because Greta did not withdraw the excess before June 1, 2013, she had to pay an additional tax of $18 (6% × $300) when she filed her 2012 tax return. State tax return only In 2013, excess contributions of $500 were made to Greta's account, however, she withdrew $250 from that account to use for qualified education expenses. State tax return only Using the steps shown earlier under Additional Tax on Excess Contributions , Greta figures the excess contribution in her account at the end of 2013 as follows. State tax return only (1)   $500 excess contributions made in 2013     + (2)   $300 excess contributions in ESA at end of 2012     − (2a)   $250 distribution during 2013         $550 excess at end of 2013   × 6%=$33           If Greta limits 2014 contributions to $1,450 ($2,000 maximum allowed − $550 excess contributions from 2013), she will not owe any additional tax in 2014 for excess contributions. State tax return only Figuring and reporting the additional tax. State tax return only   You figure this excise tax in Part V of Form 5329. State tax return only Report the additional tax on Form 1040, line 58 (or Form 1040NR, line 56). State tax return only Rollovers and Other Transfers Assets can be rolled over from one Coverdell ESA to another or the designated beneficiary can be changed. State tax return only The beneficiary's interest can be transferred to a spouse or former spouse because of divorce. State tax return only Rollovers Any amount distributed from a Coverdell ESA is not taxable if it is rolled over to another Coverdell ESA for the benefit of the same beneficiary or a member of the beneficiary's family (including the beneficiary's spouse) who is under age 30. State tax return only This age limitation does not apply if the new beneficiary is a special needs beneficiary. State tax return only An amount is rolled over if it is paid to another Coverdell ESA within 60 days after the date of the distribution. State tax return only Do not report qualifying rollovers (those that meet the above criteria) anywhere on Form 1040 or 1040NR. State tax return only These are not taxable distributions. State tax return only Members of the beneficiary's family. State tax return only   For these purposes, the beneficiary's family includes the beneficiary's spouse and the following other relatives of the beneficiary. State tax return only Son, daughter, stepchild, foster child, adopted child, or a descendant of any of them. State tax return only Brother, sister, stepbrother, or stepsister. State tax return only Father or mother or ancestor of either. State tax return only Stepfather or stepmother. State tax return only Son or daughter of a brother or sister. State tax return only Brother or sister of father or mother. State tax return only Son-in-law, daughter-in-law, father-in-law, mother-in-law, brother-in-law, or sister-in-law. State tax return only The spouse of any individual listed above. State tax return only First cousin. State tax return only Example. State tax return only When Aaron graduated from college last year he had $5,000 left in his Coverdell ESA. State tax return only He wanted to give this money to his younger sister, who was still in high school. State tax return only In order to avoid paying tax on the distribution of the amount remaining in his account, Aaron contributed the same amount to his sister's Coverdell ESA within 60 days of the distribution. State tax return only Only one rollover per Coverdell ESA is allowed during the 12-month period ending on the date of the payment or distribution. State tax return only This rule does not apply to the rollover of a military death gratuity or payment from Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (SGLI). State tax return only Military death gratuity. State tax return only   If you received a military death gratuity or a payment from Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (SGLI), you may roll over all or part of the amount received to one or more Coverdell ESAs for the benefit of members of the beneficiary's family (see Members of the beneficiary's family , earlier). State tax return only Such payments are made to an eligible survivor upon the death of a member of the armed forces. State tax return only The contribution to a Coverdell ESA from survivor benefits received cannot be made later than 1 year after the date on which you receive the gratuity or SGLI payment. State tax return only   This rollover contribution is not subject to (but is in addition to) the contribution limits discussed earlier under Contribution Limits . State tax return only The amount you roll over cannot exceed the total survivor benefits you received, reduced by contributions from these benefits to a Roth IRA or other Coverdell ESAs. State tax return only   The amount contributed from the survivor benefits is treated as part of your basis (cost) in the Coverdell ESA, and will not be taxed when distributed. State tax return only See Distributions , later. State tax return only The limit of one rollover per Coverdell ESA during a 12-month period does not apply to a military death gratuity or SGLI payment. State tax return only Changing the Designated Beneficiary The designated beneficiary can be changed. State tax return only See Members of the beneficiary's family , earlier. State tax return only There are no tax consequences if, at the time of the change, the new beneficiary is under age 30 or is a special needs beneficiary. State tax return only Example. State tax return only Assume the same situation for Aaron as in the last example (see Rollovers , earlier). State tax return only Instead of closing his Coverdell ESA and paying the distribution into his sister's Coverdell ESA, Aaron could have instructed the trustee of his account to simply change the name of the beneficiary on his account to that of his sister. State tax return only Transfer Because of Divorce If a spouse or former spouse receives a Coverdell ESA under a divorce or separation instrument, it is not a taxable transfer. State tax return only After the transfer, the spouse or former spouse treats the Coverdell ESA as his or her own. State tax return only Example. State tax return only In their divorce settlement, Peg received her ex-husband's Coverdell ESA. State tax return only In this process, the account was transferred into her name. State tax return only Peg now treats the funds in this Coverdell ESA as if she were the original owner. State tax return only Distributions The designated beneficiary of a Coverdell ESA can take a distribution at any time. State tax return only Whether the distributions are tax free depends, in part, on whether the distributions are equal to or less than the amount of Adjusted qualified education expenses (defined later) that the beneficiary has in the same tax year. State tax return only See Table 7-3, Coverdell ESA Distributions at a Glance, for highlights. State tax return only Table 7-3. State tax return only Coverdell ESA Distributions at a Glance Do not rely on this table alone. State tax return only It provides only general highlights. State tax return only See the text for definitions of terms in bold type and for more complete explanations. State tax return only Question Answer Is a distribution from a Coverdell ESA to pay for a designated beneficiary's qualified education expenses tax free? Generally, yes, to the extent the amount of the distribution is not more than the designated beneficiary's adjusted qualified education expenses. State tax return only After the designated beneficiary completes his or her education at an eligible educational institution, can amounts remaining in the Coverdell ESA be distributed? Yes. State tax return only Amounts must be distributed when the designated beneficiary reaches age 30, unless he or she is a special needs beneficiary. State tax return only Also, certain transfers to members of the beneficiary's family are permitted. State tax return only Does the designated beneficiary need to be enrolled for a minimum number of courses to take a tax-free distribution? No. State tax return only Adjusted qualified education expenses. State tax return only   To determine if total distributions for the year are more than the amount of qualified education expenses, reduce total qualified education expenses by any tax-free educational assistance. State tax return only Tax-free educational assistance includes: The tax-free part of scholarships and fellowships (see Tax-Free Scholarships and Fellowships in chapter 1, Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants, and Tuition Reductions), Veterans' educational assistance (see Veterans' Benefits 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), 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. State tax return only The amount you get by subtracting tax-free educational assistance from your total qualified education expenses is your adjusted qualified education expenses. State tax return only Tax-Free Distributions Generally, distributions are tax free if they are not more than the beneficiary's adjusted qualified education expenses for the year. State tax return only Do not report tax-free distributions (including qualifying rollovers) on your tax return. State tax return only Taxable Distributions A portion of the distributions is generally taxable to the beneficiary if the total distributions are more than the beneficiary's adjusted qualified education expenses for the year. State tax return only Excess distribution. State tax return only   This is the part of the total distribution that is more than the beneficiary's adjusted qualified education expenses for the year. State tax return only Earnings and basis. State tax return only   You will receive a Form 1099-Q for each of the Coverdell ESAs from which money was distributed in 2013. State tax return only The amount of your gross distribution will be shown in box 1. State tax return only For 2013, instead of dividing the gross distribution between your earnings (box 2) and your basis (already-taxed amount) (box 3), the payer or trustee may report the fair market value (account balance) of the Coverdell ESA as of December 31, 2013. State tax return only This will be shown in the blank box below boxes 5 and 6. State tax return only   The amount contributed from survivor benefits (see Military death gratuity , earlier) is treated as part of your basis and will not be taxed when distributed. State tax return only Figuring the Taxable Portion of a Distribution The taxable portion is the amount of the excess distribution that represents earnings that have accumulated tax free in the account. State tax return only Figure the taxable portion for 2013 as shown in the following steps. State tax return only Multiply the total amount distributed by a fraction. State tax return only The numerator is the basis (contributions not previously distributed) at the end of 2012 plus total contributions for 2013 and the denominator is the value (balance) of the account at the end of 2013 plus the amount distributed during 2013. State tax return only Subtract the amount figured in (1) from the total amount distributed during 2013. State tax return only The result is the amount of earnings included in the distribution(s). State tax return only Multiply the amount of earnings figured in (2) by a fraction. State tax return only The numerator is the adjusted qualified education expenses paid during 2013 and the denominator is the total amount distributed during 2013. State tax return only Subtract the amount figured in (3) from the amount figured in (2). State tax return only The result is the amount the beneficiary must include in income. State tax return only The taxable amount must be reported on Form 1040 or Form 1040NR, line 21. State tax return only Example. State tax return only You received an $850 distribution from your Coverdell ESA, to which $1,500 had been contributed before 2013. State tax return only There were no contributions in 2013. State tax return only This is your first distribution from the account, so your basis in the account on December 31, 2012, was $1,500. State tax return only The value (balance) of your account on December 31, 2013, was $950. State tax return only You had $700 of adjusted qualified education expenses (AQEE) for the year. State tax return only Using the steps in Figuring the Taxable Portion of a Distribution , earlier, figure the taxable portion of your distribution as follows. State tax return only   1. State tax return only $850 (distribution) × $1,500 basis + $0 contributions  $950 value + $850 distribution       =$708 (basis portion of distribution)     2. State tax return only $850 (distribution)−$708 (basis portion of distribution)     =$142 (earnings included in distribution)   3. State tax return only $142 (earnings) × $700 AQEE  $850 distribution           =$117 (tax-free earnings)     4. State tax return only $142 (earnings)−$117 (tax-free earnings)=$25 (taxable earnings)                 You must include $25 in income as distributed earnings not used for qualified education expenses. State tax return only Report this amount on Form 1040, line 21, listing the type and amount of income on the dotted line. State tax return only Worksheet 7-3, Coverdell ESA–Taxable Distributions and Basis , at the end of this chapter, can help you figure your adjusted qualified education expenses, how much of your distribution must be included in income, and the remaining basis in your Coverdell ESA(s). State tax return only Coordination With American Opportunity and Lifetime Learning Credits The American opportunity or lifetime learning credit can be claimed in the same year the beneficiary takes a tax-free distribution from a Coverdell ESA, as long as the same expenses are not used for both benefits. State tax return only This means the beneficiary must reduce qualified higher education expenses by tax-free educational assistance, and then further reduce them by any expenses taken into account in determining an American opportunity or lifetime learning credit. State tax return only Example. State tax return only Derek Green had $5,800 of qualified higher education expenses for 2013, his first year in college. State tax return only He paid his college expenses from the following sources. State tax return only     Partial tuition scholarship (tax free) $1,500     Coverdell ESA distribution 1,000     Gift from parents 2,100     Earnings from part-time job 1,200           Of his $5,800 of qualified higher education expenses, $4,000 was tuition and related expenses that also qualified for an American opportunity credit. State tax return only Derek's parents claimed a $2,500 American opportunity credit (based on $4,000 expenses) on their tax return. State tax return only Before Derek can determine the taxable portion of his Coverdell ESA distribution, he must reduce his total qualified higher education expenses. State tax return only     Total qualified higher education expenses $5,800     Minus: Tax-free educational assistance −1,500     Minus: Expenses taken into account in  figuring American opportunity credit − 4,000     Equals: Adjusted qualified higher education  expenses (AQHEE) $ 300           Since the adjusted qualified higher education expenses ($300) are less than the Coverdell ESA distribution ($1,000), part of the distribution will be taxable. State tax return only The balance in Derek's account was $1,800 on December 31, 2013. State tax return only Prior to 2013, $2,100 had been contributed to this account. State tax return only Contributions for 2013 totaled $400. State tax return only Using the four steps outlined earlier, Derek figures the taxable portion of his distribution as shown below. State tax return only   1. State tax return only $1,000 (distribution) × $2,100 basis + $400 contributions  $1,800 value + $1,000 distribution           =$893 (basis portion of distribution)     2. State tax return only $1,000 (distribution)−$893 (basis portion of distribution)     = $107 (earnings included in distribution)   3. State tax return only $107 (earnings) × $300 AQHEE  $1,000 distribution       =$32 (tax-free earnings)     4. State tax return only $107 (earnings)−$32 (tax-free earnings)=$75 (taxable earnings)                 Derek must include $75 in income (Form 1040, line 21). State tax return only This is the amount of distributed earnings not used for adjusted qualified higher education expenses. State tax return only Coordination With Qualified Tuition Program (QTP) Distributions If a designated beneficiary receives distributions from both a Coverdell ESA and a QTP in the same year, and the total distribution is more than the beneficiary's adjusted qualified higher education expenses, those expenses must be allocated between the distribution from the Coverdell ESA and the distribution from the QTP before figuring how much of each distribution is taxable. State tax return only The following two examples illustrate possible allocations. State tax return only Example 1. State tax return only In 2013, Beatrice graduated from high school and began her first semester of college. State tax return only That year, she had $1,000 of qualified elementary and secondary education expenses (QESEE) for high school and $3,000 of qualified higher education expenses (QHEE) for college. State tax return only To pay these expenses, Beatrice withdrew $800 from her Coverdell ESA and $4,200 from her QTP. State tax return only No one claimed Beatrice as a dependent, nor was she eligible for an education credit. State tax return only She did not receive any tax-free educational assistance in 2013. State tax return only Beatrice must allocate her total qualified education expenses between the two distributions. State tax return only Beatrice knows that tax-free treatment will be available if she applies her $800 Coverdell ESA distribution toward her $1,000 of qualified education expenses for high school. State tax return only The qualified expenses are greater than the distribution, making the $800 Coverdell ESA distribution tax free. State tax return only Next, Beatrice matches her $4,200 QTP distribution to her $3,000 of QHEE, and finds she has an excess QTP distribution of $1,200 ($4,200 QTP − $3,000 QHEE). State tax return only She cannot use the extra $200 of high school expenses (from (1) above) against the QTP distribution because those expenses do not qualify a QTP for tax-free treatment. State tax return only Finally, Beatrice figures the taxable and tax-free portions of her QTP distribution based on her $3,000 of QHEE. State tax return only (See Figuring the Taxable Portion of a Distribution in chapter 8, Qualified Tuition Program for more information. State tax return only ) Example 2. State tax return only Assume the same facts as in Example 1 , except that Beatrice withdrew $1,800 from her Coverdell ESA and $3,200 from her QTP. State tax return only In this case, she allocates her qualified education expenses as follows. State tax return only Using the same reasoning as in Example 1, Beatrice matches $1,000 of her Coverdell ESA distribution to her $1,000 of QESEE—she has $800 of her distribution remaining. State tax return only Because higher education expenses can also qualify a Coverdell ESA distribution for tax-free treatment, Beatrice allocates her $3,000 of QHEE between the remaining $800 Coverdell ESA and the $3,200 QTP distributions ($4,000 total). State tax return only   $3,000 QHEE × $800 ESA distribution  $4,000 total distribution = $600 QHEE (ESA)     $3,000 QHEE × $3,200 QTP distribution  $4,000 total distribution = $2,400 QHEE (QTP)   Beatrice then figures the taxable part of her: Coverdell ESA distribution based on qualified education expenses of $1,600 ($1,000 QESEE + $600 QHEE). State tax return only See Figuring the Taxable Portion of a Distribution , earlier, in this chapter. State tax return only   QTP distribution based on her $2,400 of QHEE (see Figuring the Taxable Portion of a Distribution in chapter 8, Qualified Tuition Program). State tax return only The above examples show two types of allocation between distributions from a Coverdell ESA and a QTP. State tax return only However, you do not have to allocate your expenses in the same way. State tax return only You can use any reasonable method. State tax return only Losses on Coverdell ESA Investments If you have a loss on your investment in a Coverdell ESA, you may be able to deduct the loss on your income tax return. State tax return only You can deduct the loss only when all amounts from that account have been distributed and the total distributions are less than your unrecovered basis. State tax return only Your basis is the total amount of contributions to that Coverdell ESA. State tax return only You claim the loss as a miscellaneous itemized deduction on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 23 (Schedule A (Form 1040NR), line 9), subject to the 2%-of-adjusted-gross-income limit. State tax return only If you have distributions from more than one Coverdell ESA account during a year, you must combine the information (amount of distribution, basis, etc. State tax return only ) from all such accounts in order to determine your taxable earnings for the year. State tax return only By doing this, the loss from one ESA account reduces the distributed earnings (if any) from any other ESA account. State tax return only For examples of the calculation, see Losses on QTP Investments in chapter 8, Qualified Tuition Program. State tax return only Additional Tax on Taxable Distributions Generally, if you receive a taxable distribution, you also must pay a 10% additional tax on the amount included in income. State tax return only Exceptions. State tax return only   The 10% additional tax does not apply to distributions: Paid to a beneficiary (or to the estate of the designated beneficiary) on or after the death of the designated beneficiary. State tax return only Made because the designated beneficiary is disabled. State tax return only A person is considered to be disabled if he or she shows proof that he or she cannot do any substantial gainful activity because of his or her physical or mental condition. State tax return only A physician must determine that his or her condition can be expected to result in death or to be of long-continued and indefinite duration. State tax return only Included in income because the designated beneficiary received: A tax-free scholarship or fellowship (see Tax-Free Scholarships and Fellowships 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 ), or Any other nontaxable (tax-free) payments (other than gifts or inheritances) received as educational assistance. State tax return only Made on account of the attendance of the designated beneficiary at a U. State tax return only S. State tax return only military academy (such as the USMA at West Point). State tax return only This exception applies only to the extent that the amount of the distribution does not exceed the costs of advanced education (as defined in section 2005(d)(3) of title 10 of the U. State tax return only S. State tax return only Code) attributable to such attendance. State tax return only Included in income only because the qualified education expenses were taken into account in determining the American opportunity or lifetime learning credit (see Coordination With American Opportunity and Lifetime Learning Credits , earlier). State tax return only Made before June 1, 2014, of an excess 2013 contribution (and any earnings on it). State tax return only The distributed earnings must be included in gross income for the year in which the excess contribution was made. State tax return only Exception (3) applies only to the extent the distribution is not more than the scholarship, allowance, or payment. State tax return only Figuring the additional tax. State tax return only    Use Part II of Form 5329, to figure any additional tax. State tax return only Report the amount on Form 1040, line 58, or Form 1040NR, line 56. State tax return only When Assets Must Be Distributed Any assets remaining in a Coverdell ESA must be distributed when either one of the following two events occurs. State tax return only The designated beneficiary reaches age 30. State tax return only In this case, the remaining assets must be distributed within 30 days after the beneficiary reaches age 30. State tax return only However, this rule does not apply if the beneficiary is a special needs beneficiary. State tax return only The designated beneficiary dies before reaching age 30. State tax return only In this case, the remaining assets must generally be distributed within 30 days after the date of death. State tax return only Exception for Transfer to Surviving Spouse or Family Member If a Coverdell ESA is transferred to a surviving spouse or other family member as the result of the death of the designated beneficiary, the Coverdell ESA retains its status. State tax return only (“Family member” was defined earlier under Rollovers . State tax return only ) This means the spouse or other family member can treat the Coverdell ESA as his or her own and does not need to withdraw the assets until he or she reaches age 30. State tax return only This age limitation does not apply if the new beneficiary is a special needs beneficiary. State tax return only There are no tax consequences as a result of the transfer. State tax return only How To Figure the Taxable Earnings When a total distribution is made because the designated beneficiary either reached age 30 or died, the earnings that accumulated tax free in the account must be included in taxable income. State tax return only You determine these earnings as shown in the following two steps. State tax return only Multiply the amount distributed by a fraction. State tax return only The numerator is the basis (contributions not previously distributed) at the end of 2012 plus total contributions for 2013 and the denominator is the balance in the account at the end of 2013 plus the amount distributed during 2013. State tax return only Subtract the amount figured in (1) from the total amount distributed during 2013. State tax return only The result is the amount of earnings included in the distribution. State tax return only For an example, see steps (1) and (2) of the Example under Figuring the Taxable Portion of a Distribution, earlier. State tax return only The beneficiary or other person receiving the distribution must report this amount on Form 1040, line 21, or Form 1040NR, line 21, listing the type and amount of income on the dotted line. State tax return only Worksheet 7-3 Instructions. State tax return only Coverdell ESA—Taxable Distributions and Basis Line G.
