NC 529 Plan Income Tax Deduction Continues

NC Income Tax

The North Carolina General Assembly recently passed legislation that preserves the deduction on NC 529 College Savings Plan contributions for all North Carolina taxpayers, regardless of income. The adjusted gross income limitations that were scheduled to return in 2012 on the state income tax deduction for the NC 529 Plan have been eliminated.

The maximum annual contribution deductible from NC taxable income remains the same at $2,500 (individual) or $5,000 (married, filing jointly).  529 Plans offer tax-free growth when used for qualified educational expenses, and are protected from creditors up to $25,000 for each plan.
