Congress has tried to make higher education more affordable by providing favorable tax treatment to savings accumulated in qualified tuition programs (QTPs), also called Section 529 programs. This 5.5x8.5" report provides an overview of QTPs. Brief chapters define Section 529 programs and detail tax treatment of QTP contributions and earnings, transfer tax provisions for Section 529 plans, and the interaction of Section 529 plans with other tax incentives for postsecondary education. The main part of the book provides tables summarizing Section 529 prepaid tuition and college savings plans by state, as of December 2003. Information on the author is not given.
