529 Plans

What is a 529 plan?

A 529 plan is a tax-deferred investment that encourages saving for future college costs. As a result of the 2018 tax reform, a 529 plan can now be used to save for both private K-12 and college tuition as well as other educational expenses at the college level. For K-12 education, you can use up to $10,000 per calendar year per student to pay tuition expenses.
