Save for higher education expenses

A Coverdell Education Savings Account (ESA) puts your savings on the right track while planning for expenses such as tuition, fees, books, supplies, equipment, and, in some cases, room and board. With an ESA, you make nondeductible contributions that provide the potential for tax-free withdrawals - including earnings down the road.
