Tax breaks

Are 529 contributions tax deductible in Texas? Contributions to a 529 plan are not deductible on federal tax returns. However, most states do offer some variation of state tax deductions, whether they be full or partial. Texas does not have a state income tax and therefore does not offer tax deductions on contributions. But that doesn’t mean 529s aren’t worth investing in for Texas families, as there are beneficial tax breaks just for contributing to the account.

Contributions to a 529 College Savings Plan grow on a tax-deferred basis and appreciation can be withdrawn from the plan without federal income taxes as long as they are used for qualified education expenses.


Flexible withdrawal options

529 College Savings Plans offer a variety of investment options, allowing you to select the investments that best suit your needs and financial goals. You can use the plan to save for any type of higher education, including undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees. For affluent families looking to send their children to private school, new laws allow you to use 529 contributions to pay for K-12 tuition up to $10,000 per year.

Additionally, you have the flexibility to withdraw contributions or earnings from a 529 for qualified education expenses at any point in time. This means you can withdraw these funds as needed, making 529 College Savings Plans an ideal way to cover college costs as they come.


College savings for future generations

529 plans can also be used as a powerful estate planning tool, allowing you to pass assets on to the next generation. The account owner has control over the 529 College Savings Plan and can choose who will receive the funds. You can name a beneficiary of the plan and make changes at any time, making it an ideal way to pass on your wealth and ensure the future financial well-being of your loved ones.

If you’re looking for a tax-efficient way to save on college for the next generation, a 529 college savings plan is a great option.
