I have individual TIPS and some are in a taxable account. My daughter is starting college, and if I can do a 1040A instead of a 1040, I will not be required to list my assets on the Student Aid application. The 1040A handles only interest, ordinary dividends, and cap gain distributions. Do TIPS throw off any other type of income that would force me to use a Schedule D/1040? I haven't owned them before and don't know how the 1099 classifies the inflation bump-up in TIPS. Anybody know?
