The Kentucky Education Savings Plan Trust (KESPT) can help you meet your goals and maximize your savings! It's never too late to start.

The Kentucky Education Savings Plan Trust (KESPT) is encouraging families to review their education savings strategy this tax season and consider the tax-free growth opportunity offered by Kentucky’s 529 savings plan. Not only can earnings grow tax free in a KESPT account, but withdrawals are also tax-free when used to pay for qualified education expenses.

Families have many financial responsibilities, so we encourage parents to start saving while their children are young,” said David Lawhorn, KESPT program manager. “Families who make saving a priority often feel more prepared for education expenses as their children get older, and they have more time to take advantage of tax-free growth opportunity.”
