How do I report interest on EE bonds?

How do I avoid paying taxes on EE bonds?

One way you might avoid owing taxes on the bond interest is to cash your EE or I bonds before maturity and use the proceeds to pay for college.

How much tax do you pay on EE savings bonds?

The bond accrues interest even after reaching its face value, but at “final maturity” (after 30 years), interest stops accruing and must be reported. The interest on EE bonds is not taxed as it accrues unless the owner elects to have it taxed annually.

What should I do with old savings bonds?

If you discover that your savings bonds have matured, you should cash them in and invest the money elsewhere. If you have paper bonds, contact your bank to see if it cashes savings bonds (not all banks do, and some will cash in savings bonds only for customers who have had accounts for at least six months).
