Iowa taxpayers still have plenty of time to make contributions to their College Savings Iowa accounts and have them count toward their 2018 state taxes. The deadline for your 2018 contributions is April 30, 2019. For 2018, you can claim an Iowa state tax deduction of up to $3,319 per beneficiary account.*
When making contributions for the 2018 tax year in the 2019 calendar year, make sure to mark the tax year you want the contribution to count toward on your contribution coupon or when making your electronic transfer.
*If withdrawals are not qualified, the deductions must be added back to Iowa taxable income. Adjusted annually for inflation.
