What if a college sends me a refund?

Generally, College students and parents who receive refunds for tuition, room and board, or other qualified expenses can re-contribute their refund back into their GET account within 60 days of the date of the refund to avoid paying any penalty or taxes on the earnings. Be sure to check IRS Publication 970 to see how a refund may be treated under the law.
