529 Plans

Beginning in 2018, Congress introduced a change to increase tax savings for individuals paying for K-12 private school education. The 529 plan was started in 1996 to encourage individuals to contribute to a long-term savings account for tax-advantages for future college costs. This plan was recently changed to reimburse up to $10,000 of K-12 tuition, per beneficiary, per year.

Summary of 529 plans:

  • Tax advantaged investment accounts originally designed to help families pay for college
  • Rough equivalent of Roth IRAs for education
  • Money goes in after tax
  • Funds grow tax-free
  • Distributions are tax exempt if used for qualified education expenses
