Arizona Tax Incentive
This tax incentive provides a State of Arizona income tax deduction for contributions made to any state’s 529 plan. The incentive adds to the ongoing tax benefits of a 529 plan where assets grow tax-deferred and withdrawals are tax-free when funds are used for qualified higher education expenses .
Married couples can subtract up to $1500 when filing jointly
Single individuals or heads of household may subtract up to $750
Families should consider their own state’s 529 plan before investing in another state’s plan. By considering in-state incentives, families may find that they more closely meet college saving goals. Families are urged to consult their tax advisor when making a college savings decision.
