College Savings Iowa was created in 1998 as Iowa's first 529 plan. It is sold directly to Iowans and people across the country. The IAdvisor 529 Plan was introduced in 2006, and is sold through financial planners. While each plan differs in the investment choices and the method of distribution, both share the same goal - get people saving for education.
For 2023, if an Iowa taxpayer is a College Savings Iowa or IAdvisor 529 Plan Participant, they can deduct the first $3,785 they contribute per Beneficiary account from their state taxable income. For example, married participants who contribute to separate accounts on behalf of their two children can deduct up to $15,140 (4 x $3,785) on their 2023 Iowa taxes. This deductible amount is adjusted annually for inflation. Read the Program Description (PDF) for more details.
