How does a 529 college savings plan work?

A 529 college savings plan is a specialized savings account used to save money for college. 529 plans work similar to a Roth IRA, in that contributions are made with after-tax dollar and earnings accumulate tax-deferred. The money in a 529 plan may be used for college tuition and K-12, tax-free1.

What happens to a 529 if not used for education?

If money is taken out of a 529 plan for any purpose other than education, the account owner may have to pay both income taxes on the earnings and a 10% penalty on all the money withdrawn from the plan1.
