If you redeemed a U.S. Savings Bond this year and reported interest for this bond on previous tax returns, you will need to report the amount in the program that you previously reported.  The amount reported as income on prior year return(s) will then be subtracted from Schedule B (Form 1040) before transferring to the federal form.  If you need help accessing Form 1099-INT in the TaxAct program, go to our Form 1099-INT - Entering in Program FAQ
