Important Plan 529 Tax Opportunities


As all of you know, re-enrollment for the 2018-2019 school year will begin in mid-February.  I wanted to make sure that all of the Laurence Manning family was aware of a change in the federal tax law that may beneficial to independent school parents.


The new Tax Cut and Jobs Act that was just passed by the U.S. Congress allows families to tap a 529 plan to cover up to $10,000 in private elementary and high school expenses each year.   Each state has specific regulations related to these tax-advantaged savings plans.  In South Carolina, this could mean up to a 7% savings when filing your state tax return.


Therefore, I would suggest that you investigate if this significant change to the 529 plan may be of benefit to you.  For more information, please contact your personal tax consultant.
