For All Grant and Scholarship Recipients in 2015:
If you received grant and scholarship aid that exceeds the cost of tuition, fees, and books for the calendar year 2015, you may have taxable financial aid that should be included on your U.S. income tax return. Similarly, if you receive any grant or scholarship assistance that is specifically designated for a cost other than tuition, fees, and books, these amounts are taxable. You may also need to include these amounts on your state tax return.
