Accelerated Gifting

Many investors are taking advantage of the accelerated gifting feature that 529 plans offer. Remember, you can increase your gift amount up to $70,000, or $140,000 for married couples (five times the annual gift tax exclusion), per beneficiary in a single year.

Under an add-back rule, if a contributor to a 529 plan elects to treat the gift as having been made over a five-year period and dies during the five-year period, prorated amounts allocatable to the years after death are included in the contributors gross estate for federal estate tax valuation purposes. You should consult with your tax advisor or accountant to determine your individual tax situation. Please see the Program Description for more information.


Friends and family can give the gift of education all year round!
