Future Developments For the latest information about developments related to Form 8815 and its instructions, such as legislation enacted after they were published, go to www.irs.gov/Form8815. Purpose of Form If you cashed series EE or I U.S. savings bonds in 2023 that were issued after 1989, you may be able to exclude from your income part or all of the interest on those bonds. Use this form to figure the amount of any interest you may exclude. • Room and board; or • Courses involving sports, games, or hobbies that are not part of a degree- or certificate-granting program. Do not include on line 2 expenses that were: • Covered by nontaxable educational benefits paid directly to, or by, the educational institution; • Used to figure an education credit on Form 8863; or • Used to figure the nontaxable amount of a distribution from a Coverdell ESA or QTP. Line 3 To qualify for the exclusion, the bonds must be series EE or I U.S. savings bonds issued after 1989 in your name, or, if you are married, they may be issued in your name and your spouse’s name. Also, you must have been age 24 or older before the bonds were issued. A bond bought by a parent and issued in the name of his or her child under age 24 does not qualify for the exclusion by the parent or child. Enter on this line the total qualified higher education expenses included on line 2 that were covered by nontaxable educational benefits. These benefits include the following. • Scholarship or fellowship grants excludable from income under section 117. See chapter 1 of Pub. 970 for more information. • Veterans’ educational assistance benefits. • Employer-provided educational assistance benefits that are not included in box 1 of your Form(s) W-2. • Payments, waivers, or reimbursements of educational expenses under a QTP. • Any other payments (but not gifts, bequests, or inheritances) for educational expenses that are exempt from income tax by any U.S. law. Do not include on line 3 nontaxable educational benefits paid directly to, or by, the educational institution. Example. You paid $10,000 of qualified higher education expenses in 2023 to the college your son attended. None of the expenses are used to figure an education credit or the nontaxable amount of a Coverdell ESA or QTP. You claim your son as a dependent on your 2023 tax return. Your son received a $2,000 nontaxable scholarship grant for 2023, which was paid directly to him. In this case, enter $10,000 on line 2 and $2,000 on line 3. Recordkeeping Requirements Line 6 Who Can Take the Exclusion You can take the exclusion if all four of the following apply. 1. You cashed qualified U.S. savings bonds in 2023 that were issued after 1989. 2. You paid qualified higher education expenses in 2023 for yourself, your spouse, or your dependents. 3. Your filing status is any status except married filing separately. 4. Your modified adjusted gross income (AGI) is less than $106,850 if single, head of household, or qualifying surviving spouse; or $167,800 if married filing jointly.
