Looking for good resources (old threads, info available on the web that is accurate, etc.) on what are valid expenses for 529 funds. I am certain that tuition and books are acceptable. What exactly would be included as supplies? If you are a music student at a music conservatory is a new instrument a "supply"? I read a computer isn't a valid expense, I see conflicting information on room and board and transportation, etc.. Finally, it appears if you got a scholarship you can remove equivalent money without penalty but would have to pay tax on the gains (if any?). I will also consult our accountant but he has been very hard to reach lately.
