1040 ez 2011 form How Much Can You Contribute Are Distributions TaxableFiguring the Taxable Portion of a Distribution Additional Tax on Taxable Distributions Rollovers and Other TransfersRollovers Changing the Designated Beneficiary Introduction Qualified tuition programs (QTPs) are also called “529 plans. 1040 ez 2011 form ” States may establish and maintain programs that allow you to either prepay or contribute to an account for paying a student's qualified education expenses at a postsecondary institution. 1040 ez 2011 form Eligible educational institutions may establish and maintain programs that allow you to prepay a student's qualified education expenses. 1040 ez 2011 form If you prepay tuition, the student (designated beneficiary) will be entitled to a waiver or a payment of qualified education expenses. 1040 ez 2011 form You cannot deduct either payments or contributions to a QTP. 1040 ez 2011 form For information on a specific QTP, you will need to contact the state agency or eligible educational institution that established and maintains it. 1040 ez 2011 form What is the tax benefit of a QTP. 1040 ez 2011 form   No tax is due on a distribution from a QTP unless the amount distributed is greater than the beneficiary's adjusted qualified education expenses. 1040 ez 2011 form See Are Distributions Taxable , later, for more information. 1040 ez 2011 form    Even if a QTP is used to finance a student's education, the student or the student's parents still may be eligible to claim the American opportunity credit or the lifetime learning credit. 1040 ez 2011 form See Coordination With American Opportunity and Lifetime Learning Credits, later. 1040 ez 2011 form What Is a Qualified Tuition Program A qualified tuition program is a program set up to allow you to either prepay, or contribute to an account established for paying, a student's qualified education expenses at an eligible educational institution. 1040 ez 2011 form QTPs can be established and maintained by states (or agencies or instrumentalities of a state) and eligible educational institutions. 1040 ez 2011 form The program must meet certain requirements. 1040 ez 2011 form Your state government or the eligible educational institution in which you are interested can tell you whether or not they participate in a QTP. 1040 ez 2011 form Qualified education expenses. 1040 ez 2011 form   These are expenses related to enrollment or attendance at an Eligible educational institution (defined later). 1040 ez 2011 form As shown in the following list, to be qualified, some of the expenses must be required by the institution and some must be incurred by students who are enrolled at least half-time. 1040 ez 2011 form See Half-time student , later. 1040 ez 2011 form The following expenses must be required for enrollment or attendance of a Designated beneficiary (defined later) at an eligible educational institution. 1040 ez 2011 form Tuition and fees. 1040 ez 2011 form Books, supplies, and equipment. 1040 ez 2011 form Expenses for special needs services needed by a special needs beneficiary must be incurred in connection with enrollment or attendance at an eligible educational institution. 1040 ez 2011 form Expenses for room and board must be incurred by students who are enrolled at least half-time. 1040 ez 2011 form The expense for room and board qualifies only to the extent that it is not more than the greater of the following two amounts. 1040 ez 2011 form 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. 1040 ez 2011 form The actual amount charged if the student is residing in housing owned or operated by the eligible educational institution. 1040 ez 2011 form You will need to contact the eligible educational institution for qualified room and board costs. 1040 ez 2011 form    For tax years after 2010, the purchase of computer technology or equipment is only a qualified education expense if the computer technology or equipment is required for enrollment or attendance at an eligible institution. 1040 ez 2011 form Designated beneficiary. 1040 ez 2011 form   The designated beneficiary is generally the student (or future student) for whom the QTP is intended to provide benefits. 1040 ez 2011 form The designated beneficiary can be changed after participation in the QTP begins. 1040 ez 2011 form If a state or local government or certain tax-exempt organizations purchase an interest in a QTP as part of a scholarship program, the designated beneficiary is the person who receives the interest as a scholarship. 1040 ez 2011 form Half-time student. 1040 ez 2011 form   A student is enrolled “at least half-time” if he or she is enrolled for at least half the full-time academic workload for the course of study the student is pursuing, as determined under the standards of the school where the student is enrolled. 1040 ez 2011 form Eligible educational institution. 1040 ez 2011 form   For purposes of a QTP, this is any college, university, vocational school, or other postsecondary educational institution eligible to participate in a student aid program administered by the U. 1040 ez 2011 form S. 1040 ez 2011 form Department of Education. 1040 ez 2011 form It includes virtually all accredited public, nonprofit, and proprietary (privately owned profit-making) postsecondary institutions. 1040 ez 2011 form The educational institution should be able to tell you if it is an eligible educational institution. 1040 ez 2011 form   Certain educational institutions located outside the United States also participate in the U. 1040 ez 2011 form S. 1040 ez 2011 form Department of Education's Federal Student Aid (FSA) programs. 1040 ez 2011 form   How Much Can You Contribute Contributions to a QTP on behalf of any beneficiary cannot be more than the amount necessary to provide for the qualified education expenses of the beneficiary. 1040 ez 2011 form There are no income restrictions on the individual contributors. 1040 ez 2011 form You can contribute to both a QTP and a Coverdell ESA in the same year for the same designated beneficiary. 1040 ez 2011 form   Are Distributions Taxable The part of a distribution representing the amount paid or contributed to a QTP does not have to be included in income. 1040 ez 2011 form This is a return of the investment in the plan. 1040 ez 2011 form The designated beneficiary generally does not have to include in income any earnings distributed from a QTP if the total distribution is less than or equal to adjusted qualified education expenses (defined under Figuring the Taxable Portion of a Distribution , later). 1040 ez 2011 form Earnings and return of investment. 1040 ez 2011 form    You will receive a Form 1099-Q, from each of the programs from which you received a QTP distribution in 2013. 1040 ez 2011 form The amount of your gross distribution (box 1) shown on each form will be divided between your earnings (box 2) and your basis, or return of investment (box 3). 1040 ez 2011 form Form 1099-Q should be sent to you by January 31, 2014. 1040 ez 2011 form Figuring the Taxable Portion of a Distribution To determine if total distributions for the year are more or less than the amount of qualified education expenses, you must compare the total of all QTP distributions for the tax year to the adjusted qualified education expenses. 1040 ez 2011 form Adjusted qualified education expenses. 1040 ez 2011 form   This amount is the total qualified education expenses reduced by any tax-free educational assistance. 1040 ez 2011 form 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. 1040 ez 2011 form Taxable earnings. 1040 ez 2011 form   Use the following steps to figure the taxable part. 1040 ez 2011 form Multiply the total distributed earnings shown in box 2 of Form 1099-Q by a fraction. 1040 ez 2011 form The numerator is the adjusted qualified education expenses paid during the year and the denominator is the total amount distributed during the year. 1040 ez 2011 form Subtract the amount figured in (1) from the total distributed earnings. 1040 ez 2011 form The result is the amount the beneficiary must include in income. 1040 ez 2011 form Report it on Form 1040 or Form 1040NR, line 21. 1040 ez 2011 form Example 1. 1040 ez 2011 form In 2007, Sara Clarke's parents opened a savings account for her with a QTP maintained by their state government. 1040 ez 2011 form Over the years they contributed $18,000 to the account. 1040 ez 2011 form The total balance in the account was $27,000 on the date the distribution was made. 1040 ez 2011 form In the summer of 2013, Sara enrolled in college and had $8,300 of qualified education expenses for the rest of the year. 1040 ez 2011 form She paid her college expenses from the following sources. 1040 ez 2011 form   Gift from parents $1,600     Partial tuition scholarship (tax-free) 3,100     QTP distribution 5,300           Before Sara can determine the taxable part of her QTP distribution, she must reduce her total qualified education expenses by any tax-free educational assistance. 1040 ez 2011 form   Total qualified education expenses $8,300     Minus: Tax-free educational assistance −3,100     Equals: Adjusted qualified  education expenses (AQEE) $5,200   Since the remaining expenses ($5,200) are less than the QTP distribution, part of the earnings will be taxable. 1040 ez 2011 form Sara's Form 1099-Q shows that $950 of the QTP distribution is earnings. 1040 ez 2011 form Sara figures the taxable part of the distributed earnings as follows. 1040 ez 2011 form   1. 1040 ez 2011 form $950 (earnings) × $5,200 AQEE  $5,300 distribution           =$932 (tax-free earnings)     2. 1040 ez 2011 form $950 (earnings)−$932 (tax-free earnings)     =$18 (taxable earnings)  Sara must include $18 in income (Form 1040, line 21) as distributed QTP earnings not used for adjusted qualified education expenses. 1040 ez 2011 form Coordination With American Opportunity and Lifetime Learning Credits An American opportunity or lifetime learning credit (education credit) can be claimed in the same year the beneficiary takes a tax-free distribution from a QTP, as long as the same expenses are not used for both benefits. 1040 ez 2011 form This means that after the beneficiary reduces qualified education expenses by tax-free educational assistance, he or she must further reduce them by the expenses taken into account in determining the credit. 1040 ez 2011 form Example 2. 1040 ez 2011 form Assume the same facts as in Example 1 , except that Sara's parents claimed an American opportunity credit of $2,500 (based on $4,000 expenses). 1040 ez 2011 form   Total qualified education expenses $8,300     Minus: Tax-free educational assistance −3,100     Minus: Expenses taken into account  in figuring American opportunity credit −4,000     Equals: Adjusted qualified  education expenses (AQEE) $1,200           The taxable part of the distribution is figured as follows. 1040 ez 2011 form   1. 1040 ez 2011 form $950 (earnings) × $1,200 AQEE  $5,300 distribution           =$215 (tax-free earnings)     2. 1040 ez 2011 form $950 (earnings)−$215 (tax-free earnings)     =$735 (taxable earnings)       Sara must include $735 in income (Form 1040, line 21). 1040 ez 2011 form This represents distributed earnings not used for adjusted qualified education expenses. 1040 ez 2011 form Coordination With Coverdell ESA Distributions If a designated beneficiary receives distributions from both a QTP and a Coverdell ESA in the same year, and the total of these distributions is more than the beneficiary's adjusted qualified higher education expenses, the expenses must be allocated between the distributions. 1040 ez 2011 form For purposes of this allocation, disregard any qualified elementary and secondary education expenses. 1040 ez 2011 form Example 3. 1040 ez 2011 form Assume the same facts as in Example 2 , except that instead of receiving a $5,300 distribution from her QTP, Sara received $4,600 from that account and $700 from her Coverdell ESA. 1040 ez 2011 form In this case, Sara must allocate her $1,200 of adjusted qualified higher education expenses (AQHEE) between the two distributions. 1040 ez 2011 form   $1,200 AQHEE × $700 ESA distribution  $5,300 total distribution = $158 AQHEE (ESA)     $1,200 AQHEE × $4,600 QTP distribution  $5,300 total distribution = $1,042 AQHEE (QTP)   Sara then figures the taxable portion of her Coverdell ESA distribution based on qualified higher education expenses of $158, and the taxable portion of her QTP distribution based on the other $1,042. 1040 ez 2011 form Note. 1040 ez 2011 form If you are required to allocate your expenses between Coverdell ESA and QTP distributions, and you have adjusted qualified elementary and secondary education expenses, see the examples in chapter 7, Coverdell Education Savings Account under Coordination With Qualified Tuition Program (QTP) Distributions . 1040 ez 2011 form Coordination With Tuition and Fees Deduction. 1040 ez 2011 form   A tuition and fees deduction can be claimed in the same year the beneficiary takes a tax-free distribution from a QTP, as long as the same expenses are not used for both benefits. 1040 ez 2011 form Losses on QTP Investments If you have a loss on your investment in a QTP account, you may be able to take the loss on your income tax return. 1040 ez 2011 form You can take the loss only when all amounts from that account have been distributed and the total distributions are less than your unrecovered basis. 1040 ez 2011 form Your basis is the total amount of contributions to that QTP account. 1040 ez 2011 form 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. 1040 ez 2011 form If you have distributions from more than one QTP account during a year, you must combine the information (amount of distribution, basis, etc. 1040 ez 2011 form ) from all such accounts in order to determine your taxable earnings for the year. 1040 ez 2011 form By doing this, the loss from one QTP account reduces the distributed earnings (if any) from any other QTP accounts. 1040 ez 2011 form Example 1. 1040 ez 2011 form In 2013, Taylor received a final distribution of $1,000 from QTP #1. 1040 ez 2011 form His unrecovered basis in that account before the distribution was $3,000. 1040 ez 2011 form If Taylor itemizes his deductions, he can claim the $2,000 loss on Schedule A (Form 1040). 1040 ez 2011 form Example 2. 1040 ez 2011 form Assume the same facts as in Example 1 , except that Taylor also had a distribution of $9,000 from QTP #2, giving him total distributions for 2013 of $10,000. 1040 ez 2011 form His total basis in these distributions was $4,500 ($3,000 for QTP #1 and $1,500 for QTP #2). 1040 ez 2011 form Taylor's adjusted qualified education expenses for 2013 totaled $6,000. 1040 ez 2011 form In order to figure his taxable earnings, Taylor combines the two accounts and determines his taxable earnings as follows. 1040 ez 2011 form   1. 1040 ez 2011 form $10,000 (total distribution)−$4,500 (basis portion of distribution)     = $5,500 (earnings included in distribution)   2. 1040 ez 2011 form $5,500 (earnings) x $6,000 AQEE  $10,000 distribution           =$3,300 (tax-free earnings)     3. 1040 ez 2011 form $5,500 (earnings)−$3,300 (tax-free earnings)     =$2,200 (taxable earnings)                 Taylor must include $2,200 in income on Form 1040, line 21. 1040 ez 2011 form Because Taylor's accounts must be combined, he cannot deduct his $2,000 loss (QTP #1) on Schedule A (Form 1040). 1040 ez 2011 form Instead, the $2,000 loss reduces the total earnings that were distributed, thereby reducing his taxable earnings. 1040 ez 2011 form 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. 1040 ez 2011 form Exceptions. 1040 ez 2011 form   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. 1040 ez 2011 form Made because the designated beneficiary is disabled. 1040 ez 2011 form 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. 1040 ez 2011 form 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. 1040 ez 2011 form 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. 1040 ez 2011 form Made on account of the attendance of the designated beneficiary at a U. 1040 ez 2011 form S. 1040 ez 2011 form military academy (such as the USNA at Annapolis). 1040 ez 2011 form 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. 1040 ez 2011 form S. 1040 ez 2011 form Code) attributable to such attendance. 1040 ez 2011 form 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. 1040 ez 2011 form ) Exception (3) applies only to the extent the distribution is not more than the scholarship, allowance, or payment. 1040 ez 2011 form Figuring the additional tax. 1040 ez 2011 form    Use Part II of Form 5329, to figure any additional tax. 1040 ez 2011 form Report the amount on Form 1040, line 58, or Form 1040NR, line 56. 1040 ez 2011 form Rollovers and Other Transfers Assets can be rolled over or transferred from one QTP to another. 1040 ez 2011 form In addition, the designated beneficiary can be changed without transferring accounts. 1040 ez 2011 form Rollovers Any amount distributed from a QTP is not taxable if it is rolled over to another QTP for the benefit of the same beneficiary or for the benefit of a member of the beneficiary's family (including the beneficiary's spouse). 1040 ez 2011 form An amount is rolled over if it is
