529 state tax deductibility in Arizona

Better late than never. Several months ago, Arizona passed legislation that allows for a state income tax deduction for contributions to Arizona-sponsored 529 plans, starting in 2008. The downside is that it is capped at $750 for individual taxpayers, and $1500 for couples filing jointly. Generally, the amount that is deductible pretty much runs the gamut from no deduction to a maximum equal to the taxpayer's adjusted gross income for the year. Arizona's max falls at the low end of the spectrum, but it's better than zero.

Important note: the deduction is subject to recapture in the event of a non-qualified distribution, which essentially means that the funds are not ultimately used for approved educational purposes.

I'm glad Arizona will offer deductions, but I've heard the fund options are really bad.

Actually, several years ago Arizona added Fidelity as the program manager of a plan that features reasonable expenses and relatively attractive investments. In fact, Savingforcollege.com publishes a ranking of the best performing 529 plans, and Fidelity Arizona was recently ranked #8 in the country: http://www.savingforcollege.com/articles/view.php?id=331 for 1 year performance. Check it out.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big starting capital.
Now, I'm happy and lucky , I begin to get real money.
