As you may know, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (H.R.1) has been signed into law, and it includes an expansion of the available uses of Internal Revenue Code Section 529 College Savings Plans to allow up to $10,000 of distributions each year for K -12 expenses such as private school tuition. It is important to note that this expansion will require that the Louisiana Legislature amend the current laws regarding the START Saving Program for the funds to be available for K-12 expenses. The current law provides that funds may be withdrawn only for the payment of higher education expenses. This means that the use of funds in a START Saving Program account will not be available for use for any K-12 educational expenses unless the Louisiana Legislature acts to amend the current START laws. The next Louisiana Legislative Session currently scheduled begins on March 12, 2018, and ends June 4, 2018 at 6 p.m.
