Compare 529 college savings plans

Many 529 savings plans feature Vanguard funds and/or investment management. Choose a plan associated with Vanguard and compare it with other 529 savings plans.

State tax benefits may not apply to K-12 tuition. This tool displays the state benefits for qualified higher education expenses. However, it's less clear whether account owners can receive a state tax break for K-12 tuition expenses. To find out if you qualify for a state benefit for K-12 tuition, check the state where you pay state income tax—even if another state sponsors your 529 plan. You should consult your tax advisor for further guidance.
