Section 529

The term “529 plan” describes a type of tax-advantaged college plan authorized by Section 529 of the Internal Revenue Code. The money you contribute to these plans grows tax-deferred, and when the student (beneficiary) is ready for college, withdrawals for qualified college expenses are exempt from federal income tax. Even though many 529 plans are marketed and sold by large financial services companies, by federal law, a 529 plan must be sponsored by a state. There are two types of 529 plans: prepaid plans and savings/investment plans. The savings/investment type, like the Florida 529 Savings Plan, is the one often referred to by financial planners and the media as a “529 plan.” The Florida Prepaid College Plan and the Florida 529 Savings Plan are both 529 plans sponsored by the State of Florida and managed by the Florida Prepaid College Board. For more information regarding 529 plans, please visit the IRS website.
