I received a 1099-Q in my name, but I used the funds to pay the tuition of my college-aged child. Are funds reported on Form 1099-Q considered taxable income?
The full amount of earnings as reported on Form 1099-Q is taxable if:
- You’re the designated beneficiary.
- You didn’t use the funds for your own qualified education expenses.
An early withdrawal penalty of **dEarlyWDPenalty** applies. The penalty is reported on Form 5329.
Before taking the withdrawal, you could change the beneficiary on the account to a member of the beneficiary’s family. Then, you can use it for their education expenses without tax or penalty.
