What We Can Do For You
College saving strategies
Tax implications of gifting assets
When planning for their children's education, most parents are aware of the runaway costs of higher education. However, not enough parents are utilizing the tax-advantaged savings accounts available to save for education expenses.
The two primary tools for education savings are Coverdell Savings Accounts and Qualified Tuition Programs (QTP), better known as 529 plans. We can model based on your savings and income whether or not these tools will be useful in your child's education.
In some cases, there are still funds available after your child leaves college. This begs the question of what to do with the saved assets if there are no more qualified education expenses remaining. This is also something we can help sort out, whether it will be optimizing the non-qualified withdrawal of the assets or transferring it to a new beneficiary.
