529 Plan Provision
A 529 plan is a tax-advantaged savings plan designed to encourage saving for future college costs. On December 22, 2017, new tax legislation was signed that includes a provision permitting 529 plan account owners to use assets to pay for qualified K-12 tuition expenses up to $10,000 per year, per student. Account owners can treat qualified K-12 withdrawals as qualified expenses with respect to the federal and Pennsylvania state tax benefits. For additional guidance on this new provision, please consult a qualified tax adviser about your personal situation.
