College 529 Savings Plan
A 529 plan is a tax-advantaged savings plan designed to encourage saving for future college costs. 529 plans, legally known as “qualified tuition plans,” are sponsored by states, state agencies, or educational institutions and are authorized by Section 529 of the Internal Revenue Code.
If you’re a Texas resident you are eligible to open either a Texas College Savings Plan or a Lone Star 529 Plan.
