Coverdell ESA Contribution Limits
Published on December 28, 2017
You may be able to contribute to a Coverdell ESA to finance the beneficiary’s qualified education expenses. Contributions must be made in cash, and they’re not deductible. Any individual whose modified adjusted gross income is under the limit set for a given tax year can make contributions. Organizations, such as corporations and trusts can also contribute regardless of their adjusted gross income. Contributors must contribute by the due date of their tax return (not including extensions). There’s no limit to the number of accounts that can be established for a particular beneficiary; however, the total contribution to all accounts on behalf of a beneficiary in any year can’t exceed $2,000.
