Every year my mom asks me the same thing: What does Glitter Bug want for Christmas? And it is just about time for that dreaded question. Seriously, this question ranks right up there with breaking a bone in my opinion. I really don’t have a clue what she wants. She is one of those children who never really asks for anything expect for a book and candy. This year I am armed and ready for this question thanks to AR529.
I had never hear of this wonderful program until I had a chance to go to P. Allen Smith home to learn about this great program.
AR529 is a way to save for college for your child or another family member. Right there caught my attention. I have a few nieces and nephews who are all around the same age as my daughter. If my daughter didn’t need any of the money we saved then, one of the other children could benefit from the saving. Or Hubby could use some to take a couple of classes. And there is also a little something for the person making the gift. Your gift is
Eligible, as an Arkansas taxpayer, for a state income tax deduction of up to $10,000, if you’re married and filing jointly; or up to $5,000, if you’re single.
You get to help yourself now and your child later. So it is kind of like two gifts in one.
Also, this makes a great baby shower gift. Babies grow so fast which means the clothes from the baby shower will be a short lived thing and a gift towards their future won’t be a short lived thing.
As the season of gifts is upon us, think about a child’s future and give the gift which keeps on giving AR529
I was invited to Moss Mountain to learn about this program. All opinions are my own.
