Scholarships that are not used for Qualified Educational Expenses (QEE)(tuition, fees, course materials) are considered taxable income.

 

GI educational benefits and VA disability are tax free regardless of what you spend the money on.  Be sure you haven't entered GI bill/VA dis as "scholarships", "grants" or "fellowships".

HSH is for Household Help

VA Disability is not reported on any tax return. That's why you don't receive any kind of a tax reporting document for VA Disability pay.

The GI Bill payments are not reportable unless you received a tax reporting document of some type for that income.

When it comes to scholarships and grants, any of that money that is not used for qualified education expenses is taxable income and will be included on line 1 of the 2019 form 1040 with an annotation of "SCH" next to it.

If any of that GI Bill money was designated for household help, then the amount not used for that gets included on line 1 of the 1040 with an annotation of "HSH" next to it.

If you have a dependent and any of that money was designated for dependent care, any of that money not used for such will be included on line with with an annotation of "DCB" next to it.

So any monies received and designated for a specific purpose, yet not used for that purpose, is taxable income to you and is taxed as ordinary wages.
