State Tax Deduction Calculator

One of the many important factors to consider when selecting a 529 plan is whether your home state offers a tax deduction or credit for contributions made to the in-state plan. Our 529 State Tax Deduction Calculator helps you estimate the value of your state's tax deduction or credit over your investment horizon, which allows you to assess the relative importance of this factor in choosing a 529 college savings plan.

Use the Calculator to compare investments in an in-state 529 plan with a tax deduction or credit to that of an out-of-state plan where the deduction or credit is not available. This illustrates the impact of a potential tax benefit relative to potential plan performance.
