Taxable distributions from a Coverdell education savings account (ESA) or a qualified tuition program (QTP). Distribu-
tions from these accounts may be taxable if (a) they are more than the qualified higher education expenses of the designated bene-
ficiary in 2008, and (b) they were not included in a qualified rollover. See Pub. 970. Nontaxable distributions from these ac-
counts, including rollovers, do not have to be reported on Form 1040.
Generally, amounts distributed are included in income unless they are
used to pay for qualified education expenses, transferred between
trustees, or rolled over to another qualified education program within 60
days. Report taxable amounts as Other Income on Form 1040.
