Debunking 529 myths

Fact: College Savings Iowa is a wonderful resource for Iowans and others at every stage in their education life. Anyone 18 years or older can open a College Savings Iowa account for a child in their life or even for themselves. If you are thinking  about going back to school or starting your education later in life, College Savings Iowa offers you a great way to save for school, grow your savings with easy investments, withdraw and pay for higher-education costs tax-free and take a tax deduction from your yearly Iowa state taxes based on your College Savings Iowa contributions.*
