Coverdell Educational Savings Account contributions for 2013 allowed til April 15  If you have a Coverdell Educational Savings Account to help fund your child’s education, you have until Apr. 15, 2014 to make your contribution for 2013. Restrictions, however, apply:

  • The maximum annual contribution is $2,000 per student.
  • You can only make contributions for students until they turn 18.
  • To be eligible to contribute the $2,000 maximum, your modified adjusted gross income must be below $95,000 if filing single, or $190,000 if filing a joint tax return.
  • To get around the income limits, the student or retired grandparents can make the contributions instead of the parents.
  • Note:  contributions are made with after-tax dollars. Earnings aren’t taxed, nor are withdrawals if the money is spent on education.
