When the new Republican-controlled North Carolina State Legislature overhauled our state's income tax, they removed the deduction for 529 plan contributions after 2013.
See page 5 of the updated NC 529 Plan Program Description. However, you still have six weeks to save up to $387 for 2013 contributions ($5,000 contribution for married couple filing jointly in the top income tax bracket).
