Some of the benefits of a 529 College Savings Plan:
- Earnings are not subject to federal tax and in some cases state tax, when used for the qualified education expenses.
- As of January 1, 2018, assets can be withdrawn to pay for K-12 tuition (up to $10,000 per year)
- There are no tax consequences if you change the designated beneficiary to another member of the family.
- For 2018 and 2019, you can contribute up to $15,000 per year ($30,000 if married filing jointly) to a single beneficiary without triggering federal gift tax — and up to $75,000 ($150,000 if married filing jointly) under special circumstances.
- More than one account can be opened (by different people) on behalf of the same beneficiary.
