Tax Advantages

Contributions are not deductible, but amounts deposited in the account grow tax-free until distributed.

All earnings in the account accumulate on a tax-deferred basis and can be withdrawn from the account tax-free if used to pay for qualified education expenses, such as tuition and fees, required books, supplies and equipment, and qualified expenses for room and board.

The American opportunity tax credit or the lifetime learning credit can be claimed in the same year the beneficiary takes a tax-free distribution from a Coverdell Education Savings Account as long as the same expenses are not used for both benefits.
