The new Federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act includes a provision that allows parents to use state 529 savings accounts for K-12 tuition. Wisconsin has a 529 Savings account called EdVest, which allows individuals to put pre-tax money aside for college expenses. Due to the new federal law, K-12 school tuition can be covered as well. Information about this change, including an extensive FAQ section, can be found at http://529k12facts.org/.
Parents with a child in a private school are able to receive a tax deduction for private school tuition. Parents statewide are able to deduct up to $4,000 per student in grades K-8, and up to $10,000 per high school student. As you prepare your Wisconsin income tax returns be sure to take advantage of this opportunity and complete "Schedule PS, Private School Tuition."
