Before investing in any qualified ABLE program, you should consider whether your home state offers a qualified ABLE program that provides its taxpayers with favorable state tax and other benefits that are only available through investment in the home state's qualified ABLE program. You also should consult your financial, tax, or other adviser to learn more about how state-based benefits (or any limitations) would apply to your specific circumstances. You also may wish to directly contact your home state's qualified ABLE program, or any other qualified ABLE program, to learn more about those plans' features, benefits and limitations. Keep in mind that state-based benefits should be one of many appropriately weighted factors to be considered when making an investment decision.
