College is so incredibly expensive, and will probably only be getting more expensive in the future. More and more parents are realizing that they should start saving for their children’s college educations as early as possible. College Advantage allows parents to save for college education, whether it’s for their teen, newborn or even for themselves for future use. Even if you have a child, grandchild, etc who has already started college you can still open an account for them, as the money can be taken out immediately if needed. A big benefit of using a college advantage 529 plan, is the money is exempt from federal and ohio state taxes, if used to pay for higher education costs, as long as you the recipient isn’t claiming any other education based tax incentives. If the account money is used for reasons other than education costs, it will still be taxed like ordinary income depending on the laws in your state. If two adults want to make accounts for the same child or person, they can do so and the child will be able to use funds from both accounts. You don’t have to have a lot of money to invest to start an account either. You can open an account for as low as $25.00.
