22. Is there a tax break for contributions I make to College Savings Plans of Maryland?
You may be able to claim up to $2,500 per contract purchased for advanced tuition payments made to the Maryland Prepaid College Trust or up to $2,500 per taxpayer per beneficiary for the total of all amounts contributed to investment accounts for the same beneficiary under the Maryland College Investment Plan and the Maryland Broker-Dealer College Investment Plan.
This subtraction modification may not be claimed if the account holder received a State contribution under 18-19A-04,1 of the Education Article during the taxable year.
If you have contributed more than $2,500 during the taxable year, the excess may be carried over to each subsequent succeeding tax year until the full amount of the initial contribution is allowed as a subtraction for the Maryland Prepaid College Trust or until used up in the next 10 succeeding taxable years for the Maryland College Investment Plan.
