529 State Tax Deduction

This tool demonstrates how much less money is required when a family saves for the future cost of attending college as opposed to taking out a loan for that cost and repaying that loan after college completion.

Your Instate 529 Benefits Tool
This tool provides a state-by-state snapshot of the tax and other benefits offered to state residents for using the in-state 529 plan as opposed to an out-of-state 529 plan.

The World's Most Realistic College Cost Calculator

The World's Simplest* College Cost Calculator
Input just one number--the child's age--and immediately see the monthly savings target for college. Can it get any simpler? All assumptions in this calculator are easily adjusted for a more customized projection.
