On December 22, 2017, the president signed new tax legislation into law. We're working on updating our website to reflect the new U.S. tax laws. In the meantime, the website may not address the changes. The legislation includes several new provisions related specifically to 529 plan accounts. We'll provide more information as additional details about the effects of the tax bill become clear. We encourage you to consult a qualified tax advisor about your personal situation.
Whether you're a more hands-on investor or prefer to be less involved, the Arkansas 529 GIFT Plan gives you several options for choosing the strategy that's right for you, your child, and your particular risk tolerance:
GIFT Plan Savings Portfolio, a lower-risk, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC)-insured option.
