Current Bill Summary

SS/SB 366 - The act exempts from state income taxation refunds of qualified higher education expenses received by beneficiaries in connection with withdrawal from an eligible education institution when the refund is contributed to a qualified tuition savings program within 60 days of withdrawal.

Furthermore, the act permits participants in the MOST program to elect to contribute all or part of their income tax refund to his or her MOST account via direct deposit. Such election must be made on a form provided by the Department of Revenue and may not be revoked. This provision is substantially similar to SB 420 (2015).
