529 Plans are state-sponsored investment vehicles for college education. They come in two forms: pre-paid tuition programs and college savings plans. 529 Plans are governed by Internal Revenue Code 529 and provide tax-deferred growth potential and federally tax-free withdrawals for qualifying college expenses such as tuition and fees, room and board, books, supplies, and equipment. Plans vary by state and may offer benefits to residents.
A 529 plan allows for contributions up to $255,000, depending on the plan. However, contributions are gifts; therefore, the $13,000 annual gift limit should be considered.
Investors should consider, before investing, whether the investor's or designated beneficiary's home states offers any state tax or other benefits that are only available for investment in such state's qualified tuition program.
