From the instructions:

If you received any tax-exempt interest,
such as from municipal bonds, each pay-
er should send you a Form 1099-INT.
Your tax-exempt interest should be
shown in box 8 of Form 1099-INT. En-
ter the total on line 8b. Also include on
line 8b any exempt-interest dividends
from a mutual fund or other regulated
investment company. This amount
should be shown in box 10 of Form
Do not include interest earned on
your IRA, health savings account, Arch-
er or Medicare Advantage MSA, or
Coverdell education savings account.

It is interesting to see that you are not to included Coverdell education savings account interest. Since the waiving of taxes on the Ibonds is for when it is used to pay for college, I wonder if it too is not to be included. That is really what I am trying to figure out in advance. It is a bit late to plan for things if you simply have to wait and see after the fact if you get a 1099 INT.

Sorry if I am being obtuse.
