If you have minor children of any age, you need to think about a plan for paying for college. Colleges vary greatly on tuition and fees. Undergraduate students at four year colleges will pay between $7,000.00 and $36,0000.00 a year. Most students will finish college with large student loans.
Placing money in a 529 for a child may be a good way to set aside money for college costs and save on taxes. The money placed in the 529 is considered a gift and there is no tax due on the withdrawals as long the withdrawal is spent on higher education costs including tuition, room and books.
