Tuition costs have been rising faster than inflation rates – between 4 and 8 percent a year. An average annual increase would push a $16,000 annual tuition bill to more than $33,000 in 15 years.
Numerous tax breaks and college savings options, including new 529 plans, have emerged in recent years to help make college more affordable for many families. We can help you evaluate and select the best strategies for your situation.
