529 Plans and the Education Credits Webinar

Summary

Qualified tuition plans (QTP) or 529 plans are a great way to save tax-free for college education. But what happens once the kids go off to college and the tuition payments and 529 plan distributions begin? This webinar reviews what tax documents you'll need from your clients (and to whom they will be delivered) before and after 529 plan distributions are made, as well as how these distributions should be reported. We'll also review whether or not your client is eligible for the American Opportunity Tax Credit (AOTC) and/or the Lifetime Learning Credit (LLC), and how these tax credits and deductions may affect a 529 plan distribution.
