H.R. 529 changed and re-introduced in Congress
H.R. 529 would provide an expansion of the Saver's Credit to include contributions to 529 plans, and it would allow employers to make up to $600 per year intax-free contributions to the 529 account of each eligible employee.
A separate bill will be introduced to increase the number of investment changes from once to four times in a year, and to expand the definition of qualified higher education expenses to include computers and computer technology.
Presumably, the second bill has a better chance of adoption even if H.R. 529 is not passed, since its tax revenue impact is modest.
