TNStars® is a program of the Tennessee Treasury Department that is designed to help Tennessee families put aside money for higher education.

529 Plans are named after the section of the Internal Revenue Code that allows states to offer tax-advantaged vehicles for families to save for college. Money invested may be withdrawn from a TNStars® account tax-free as long as it is used for qualified post-secondary education tuition and fees and related expenses such as course books, room and board, equipment and other supplies required for attendance and enrollment at a qualified institution.
