Created in 1996 and named the "529 Plan, " these state-backed plans allow for the saving of funds for secondary education on a tax deferred basis, with eventual withdrawals for educational expenses, tax free. Much like the opportunity afforded by the 401(k) plan, employees will be in a position to payroll deduct funds to be directed to the 529 Plan provider of choice. The book includes thorough, easy-to-understand explanations of the benefits of the "529 Plan." A section of frequently asked questions will help the reader determine how best to take advantage of this tax shelter. A listing of available periodical resources, website addresses and a thorough index makes this title the most important personal finance book available for any parent, grandparent or employee to have and use.

Advocates greeted the 529 plan as a way for parents to stuff college savings into special accounts with an attractive tax advantage.

Making college education more affordable is a central goal of the Obama Administration and has been a focus of Vice-President Biden's Taskforce on the Middle Class. To that end, the Task Force asked U.S. Treasury Department to prepare this report on how to make Section 529 college savings plans a more effective and reliable tool for families to save for college. The report discusses the benefits of 529s as a way to build savings for this critically important investment, the extent to which Section 529 plans serve various income groups, and how well the plans keep costs low so to maximize returns to savers. In addition, as requested by the Vice President, the report highlights exemplary practices and makes a set of recommendations on how to make Section 529 plans more effective and reliable. The report relies on information from a variety of sources, including academic research, an extensive database maintained by the College Savings Network (CSPN) on Section 529 plan features and investment options, and 66 submissions that were received in response to Treasury's request for information posted in the Federal Registry. (Contains 12 footnotes, 13 tables, and 3 figures.).

Since the early 1980s, college tuitions have soared, and state and federal governments have sought new ways to help students and families meet the costs of attendance. Annual state and federal appropriations to traditional student aid programs have more than doubled in the past two decades. In addition, the federal government created the Hope Scholarship and Lifetime Learning tax credit programs, and state governments created prepaid tuition plans and college-savings plans. These state savings plans, called "529 plans," are used by many families to help pay for college. However, because of the way funds invested in the different plans are treated by traditional financial aid programs, participation in them can affect eligibility for scholarships, grants and loans. Depending on the details, an increase in savings in a 529 plan may result in a dollar-for-dollar decrease in eligibility for need-based grant aid or it may result in no decrease at all. This paper describes the ways in which this might happen for different groups of students at different types of institutions. One of the things families should consider in deciding whether to invest in a 529 plan, some general financial savings plan (such as a mutual fund), or a savings account in a son's or daughter's name is the interaction between the level of accumulated assets and the need-based financial aid system. In general, less aid will be available to families who accumulate more assets. The precise relationships vary enormously, however, depending on the savings instrument chosen, the family's level of income and wealth, the cost of attendance at the chosen college, and the details of that institution's financial aid policies. This guide was written to assist three important groups: (1) Families, as they consider their savings options; (2) Colleges, as they consider how to treat these accumulated savings in their own financial aid policies; and (3) Policy-makers, as they consider both federal student aid policy and federal tax policy.
