Subsequently, one may also ask, what is the max 529 contribution for 2020?

One of the many benefits of saving for a child's future college education with a 529 plan is that contributions are considered gifts for tax purposes. In 2020, gifts totaling up to $15,000 per individual will qualify for the annual gift tax exclusion, the same as in 2019 and in 2018.

Subsequently, question is, how much can you put in a 529 plan annually? Total 529 plan contribution limits are set by the states and can be as high as $380,000. However, to avoid gift tax consequences, federal law allows single taxpayers to contribute up to $14,000 in one year or make a lump-sum contribution of $70,000 to cover five years.

Additionally, how often can you change 529 investments?

IRS regulations only allow you to exchange money from your current 529 investment options to a different option twice per calendar year. (The automatic changes within age-based portfolios don't count.) However, you can change the investment options for your future contributions anytime you want.

How do I Superfund a 529 plan?

To superfund a 529, you would simply add the money into the account, then file Form 709 at tax time.
