Since 1998, State Treasurer Michael Fitzgerald has been helping Iowans save for college and earn tax breaks at the same time. College Savings Iowa was created in 1998 as Iowa's first 529 Plan. It is sold directly to Iowans and people across the country. In 2006, Iowa introduced the Iowa Advisor 529 Plan. This plan is sold through financial planners. While each plan differs in the investment choices and the method of distribution, both plans share the same goal - get people saving for college.
