College Planning
 
Paying for college is one of the greatest gifts a parent or grandparent can give to a child, yet  it is one of the largest expenses many families will ever face. Everyone wants to help their children or grandchildren realize their dreams, whether it’s to become an astronaut, an engineer, a teacher or a technician.
 
If you plan far enough in advance, there are several savings options and resources parents have today designed to help save on or even fund the cost of higher education, including:
 
      •  529 College Savings Plans
      •  Coverdell Education Savings Accounts
      •  UGMA/UTMA accounts
      •  Education Savings Bonds
      •  Traditional Individual Retirement Arrangements
      •  Roth Individual Retirement Arrangements
      •  Gifting of highly appreciated stock or property
      •  Parent’s Investment Savings
      •  Scholarships
      •  Grants
      •  Federal work-study programs
      •  Student Loans
      •  Outright Cash Gifts to the Student (could have Gift Tax implications)
      •  Payment made directly to the Institution (no Gift Tax implications)
      •  Wages earned by the Student (Ask us about the tax benefitis of  Employing your Children)
 
Each of the options mentioned above have their own income tax implications and contribution limits, but all should be considered in any College Savings Plan.   For more information on how these, or any other College Planning techniques may work for you and your family, simply give us a call.
