In addition to federal tax benefits, if you are a resident of a state listed below, you may be eligible for a state income tax deduction based on contributions to the Montana 529 plan.
Review federal benefits available to all US taxpayers.
For individuals subject to Pennsylvania income tax, contributions made to any 529 plan, including the MFESP, may be deducted from taxable income on the taxpayer’s annual personal income tax return. The maximum annual amount that may be deducted is currently $12,000 per beneficiary per taxpayer. The deduction cannot result in the taxable income being less than zero.
The new state law also provides that the earnings portion of any qualified withdrawal is exempt from Pennsylvania income tax.
