NEST 529 Nationally Recognized
State Legislation Needed for NEST Plans to be Used for K-12
While the new federal tax law passed by the U.S. Congress and signed into law on Dec. 22 allows for the use of state-sponsored 529 savings accounts for K-12 tuition at private and parochial schools, Nebraska State Statutes do not provide favorable tax treatment unless those accounts are used for qualified higher education expenses at colleges, universities, community colleges, technical schools, or graduate programs.
