      Nebraska’s 529 Program began in 2001 to encourage parents and grandparents to save for their children’s or grandchildren’s college expenses. The plans allow tax-free investments as you save for college. The earnings portion of qualified withdrawals for higher education expenses are federal and state income tax-free. Account owners also qualify for up to a $5,000 Nebraska state income tax deduction. Funds can be used at eligible schools nationwide and some foreign schools.
