Estimate the state tax deduction or credit you could receive for your 529 contribution this year.
State tax benefits may not apply to K-12 tuition. K-12 tuition can be treated as a qualified education expense under the federal tax benefit. Because each state makes its own rules, it's less clear whether account owners can receive a state tax break for K-12 tuition. To find out if you qualify for a state benefit, check the state where you pay state income tax—even if another state sponsors your 529 plan. You should consult your tax advisor for guidance.
