Pittsford, NY (PRWEB) February 23, 2011
Savingforcollege.com has released the 2011-12 edition of its "Family Guide to College Savings," an 85-page book describing the challenge families face with regard to future college costs, and ways to meet that challenge through savings, tax incentives, and outside financial aid.
"This book is not for dummies or idiots," commented author and Savingforcollege.com founder Joseph Hurley CPA. "It is for parents and grandparents who want to understand the different ways to prepare for college costs, without being overwhelmed by details and legalese."
Savingforcollege.com's Family Guide to College Savings offers up-to-date information on 529 plans, Coverdell education savings accounts, American Opportunity and Lifetime Learning tax credits, applying for financial aid, and establishing a savings budget. The book, priced at only $8.95, is available through CreateSpace.com. https://www.createspace.com/3552690
With college tuition continuing to spiral upwards, and the federal government and states looking to cut back on their education subsidies, it is imperative that families empower themselves and take appropriate steps to secure their children's higher education. Surveys show that parents increasingly view a college degree as being essential for success in today's economy.
Hurley is also author of "The Best Way to Save for College: A Complete Guide to 529 Plans," considered by many to be the 'bible' of Section 529 college-savings programs. Over 100,000 copies of the The Best Way to Save for College have been sold, and the newest edition is being readied for its scheduled release in April 2011. http://www.savingforcollege.com/our_products/
