Treasurer Fitzgerald Awards 99 $529 College Savings Iowa Contributions

Des Moines, Iowa – State Treasurer Michael Fitzgerald celebrated 529 Day with a $529 College Savings Iowa contribution to one family in each Iowa county. “I’m elated to be giving 99 children a boost to their education savings,” said Fitzgerald. “All it takes is one contribution to get the ball rolling. Whether it is $25 or $529, every dollar saved is one that won’t have to be borrowed later.”

Treasurer Fitzgerald is administrator of the College Savings Iowa 529 plan, which helps families save for the rising costs of education. “529 Day, which is recognized annually on May 29, was all about informing families of the benefits of saving with a 529 plan,” he continued. “College Savings Iowa is simple, easy to use and flexible – the tax benefits are just the cherry on top!” In addition to tax-deferred earnings and tax-free withdrawals, participants who are Iowa taxpayers can deduct up to $3,522 per beneficiary account from their Iowa income taxes in 2022.*

Anyone can open an account on behalf of a child and use the funds to pay for qualified education expenses at any eligible education institution in the United States or abroad, including trade and vocational schools, colleges, universities and apprenticeship programs.**
