Education IRAs

If your goal is to ensure that your child or grandchild will have funds for college, consider an Education IRA (formerly known as Coverdell). Although the contributions you make are taxable, there is no tax penalty for the earnings when the funds are withdrawn for tuition or other expenses. An education IRA can be transferred from one child to another child member of your family if the original beneficiary/child does not use funds.
