Nashville, TN – Families of those with disabilities are now one step closer to saving more money for medical costs with tax-free earnings.
Yesterday, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam signed the Tennessee ABLE Act into Law, giving State Treasurer David H. Lillard, Jr. the authority to create and offer tax-advantaged investment plans to help families of those with disabilities save money for a variety of qualifying expenses.
The legislation, passed unanimously by the 109th General Assembly, establishes an Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Program in accordance with federal legislation.
