For a child born in 2004, the full cost of four years at a private college will amount to nearly $250,000. Next to buying a home, a college education is the largest expenditure most parents will ever make. The key to sending your child to college is advance planning.
How Can PWA Help?
The federal government has implemented several tax incentives to encourage education saving and ease the financial burden of paying for education expenses. Many of these incentives were added or expanded with the passage of the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001. The most important incentives include:
- 529 plans (Qualified Tuition Programs)
- Coverdell Education Savings Accounts (formerly Education IRAs)
- College Tuition Deduction
- Employer-paid Educational Assistance Programs
- Student Loan Interest Deduction
- Hope and Lifetime Learning Credits
At PWA, we're here to assist you in selecting the appropriate solution to help you accomplish the goal of funding your child's education. Starting early is the best first step.
