Coverdell Education Savings Account

Like its name implies, Coverdell Education Savings Accounts are designed for any qualified education expense. Withdrawals are only allowed for qualified education expenses and earnings are tax-free.

Like Roth IRAs, contributions are not tax deductible. Total contributions to a Coverdell Education Savings Account cannot exceed $2,000 per year, per child, and must be made no later than the federal income tax return deadline, not including extensions.

You can contribute to a Coverdell Education Savings Account until the child reaches age 18. Children have up until age 30 to use the funds. You cannot contribute to a Coverdell Education Savings Account in the same year you contribute to a state prepaid tuition plan.
