The biggest benefit of 529 plan accounts is that they can provide sizable tax advantages. At the federal level, your contributions can grow tax free. When you withdraw the money to pay for your child’s or loved one’s qualified college expenses, you pay no taxes on any earnings. There are no tax forms to bother with until you start making withdrawals.
The same is true at the state level: 529 plan accounts incur no state taxes while the account balance grows or when you make qualified withdrawals. A number of states also let you deduct your annual contribution against your income, potentially lowering your state tax bill. Every state plan is different, so be sure to evaluate the benefits of the plan in your state. You can purchase a 529 savings plan from any state and use it in any state.
