Education Savings Account - Income Limits


J

John Gate

Currently, one cannot contribute to an ESA if one's income
(single filer) is above $110,000. However, anyone can
contribute to an ESA, including the beneficiary.

So would this be allowed:
- Individual gifts $2,000 to beneficiary
- Beneficiary contributes $2,000 to own ESA

The beneficiary is 2 years old, and has no income (earned or
otherwise).

Thanks,

John Gate

Yes and please remember that the allowable maximum amount
contributed annually is $2000 per beneficiary, not per
taxpayer.
