What Is Form 5498 ESA
Form 5498 ESA, also known as the Coverdell ESA Contribution Information form, is a tax document sent by trustees or issuers of a Coverdell Education Savings Account (ESA) to report contributions, rollover contributions and the fair market value of the account. It is essential for tax reporting as it provides the information necessary for individual taxpayers to calculate potential tax benefits related to educational expenses.
What Do I Do With Form 5498 ESA
Receiving a 5498 ESA form indicates contributions were made to your ESA during the year. Here are the situations where the information is relevant:
- Use the data to confirm the amounts contributed to the ESA and to verify the non-deductibility of these contributions.
- If a rollover occurs, it should be reported on this form to ensure it is not mistakenly counted as a new contribution subject to annual limits.
- Retain form 5498 ESA for tax records. It helps in keeping track of lifetime contribution limits and can serve as proof of contributions for educational expenses.
