I had a question concerning EE series bonds. I have 2 EE bonds that don't have a beneficiary listed. I went to the bank this morning to get the form that allows me to add a beneficiary and it states that the bonds have to be reissued. Does this mean that I will be responsible for the taxes even though all I want is to add a beneficiary???

No. Tax is payable only on redemption of the bonds. Reissuance is different than redemption.
