Using a 529 Plan to Fund Tuition

529 Plans are educational savings plans designed to allow for the tax-free growth of investment funds used for qualified expenses. Not only can 529 Plans be used to fund a college education, but up to $10,000 per student can be used to pay private school tuition.

Potential Benefits

List of 4 items.

  • Contributions to a 529 Plan are income tax deductible

    (Example: a $10,000 contribution by a parent in the 7% income tax bracket will receive a $700 reduction in his income tax).
  • If you don’t have a 529 Plan, you can establish one and begin using funds immediately.

  • Grandparents and friends can use a 529 to fund a child’s education while retaining control over the account

    (the gift tax exclusion still applies)
  • Gains from investments are exempt from Federal and State taxes as long as the money is used to pay for qualifying educational expenses.
