For the term starting Jan. 2019, we paid tuition and R&B in Dec. 2018 because the college bill was sent and required to be paid in 2018. So we claimed 529 for both in 2018.
For the term starting Jan. 2020, my grandson intends to live off campus. The tuition will be paid in Dec. 2019 and so will the claim of 529 for tuition. The R&B (rent and food) will actually be incurred in 2020. So should the R&B portion be claimed from 529 in 2020?
