Pittsford, NY (PRWEB) May 31, 2011
With over 100,000 copies of prior editions sold, the 2011-12 edition of Joseph Hurley’s "The Best Way to Save for College - A Complete Guide to 529 Plans" is now available. The 324-page book has been completely updated and provides a window into the fastest growing investment plan being used for college savings, the Section 529 qualified state tuition program. Author Joseph F. Hurley, CPA, explains how these state-sponsored investment programs can benefit millions of American families.
“Section 529 plans offer families a combination of benefits found nowhere else,” says Hurley, founder of Savingforcollege.com. His book describes the income tax, estate tax, and financial aid advantages of a 529 plan and provides details of every plan currently being offered. It also compares 529 plans to other college savings tools, including Coverdell Education Savings Accounts, Qualifying U.S. Savings Bonds, Roth IRAs, and custodial accounts established under the Uniform Transfers to Minors Act. "The Best Way to Save for College" has become the one book college-bound families and professional planners must have.
With college tuition continuing to spiral upward, 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.
"The Best Way to Save for College – A Complete Guide to 529 Plans" is published by Savingforcollege.com Publications and can be purchased online for $29.95 at http://www.savingforcollege.com/our_products/.
