    Yes, you can deduct contributions to an OH 529 even if you’re not a resident, as long as you have enough taxable income in OH to absorb the contribution. In addition, you can take a deduction in OH for a rollover from your 529 plan in CA. The deduction is limited to $4k/beneficiary/yr with unlimited carry forwards.

    Note that 529 tax regs are state specific and what works in OH may not work in another state.

    529 and real estate funds

    Hey guys so I had a question about investors of real estate funds that require multi-state filing and 529s.

    If you are a resident of a state without a tax break for 529s (ie: California) but also invest in private real estate funds (that requires multi-state filing) can you open a 529 in one of the states that the real estate fund invests in and offset some of your state taxes as a non-resident investor of that state?

    An example: I live in CA (no tax break) but my Real Estate fund owns properties in Ohio which has state income tax. Typically I would have to pay CA state tax (income from my regular job) and also Ohio state tax (income from my real estate). But as a CA resident can I get a tax break on my Ohio state taxes by investing a 529 for my child in Ohio?

    What do you guys think?
