How Vanguard can help you save for college

Tax updates coming soon
We’re working on updates that will reflect the new U.S. tax law. In the meantime, this page may not address this development.
In summary, the law expands 529 plans to include tax-free distributions of up to $10,000 per year per student to pay for K-12 expenses. Currently, 529 plans offer tax-free withdrawals only for college expenses.
We recommend that you consult a qualified tax advisor about your personal situation.
