Draft 2007-08 FAFSA describes 529 and ESA treatment
However, the instructions also include a note for students who are reporting parental information on the FAFSA (i.e. dependent students):
"Education accounts owned by your parents, including Coverdell savings accounts, 529 college savings plans, and the refund value of a 529 or state prepaid tuition plans, are reported as an asset of your parents (question 92). Do not report the value of these accounts if the student is the owner."
