Filling Out Form 709 for Superfunding 529 Contributions

I decided to superfund my kids’ 529 accounts because I was late to the game. Then I learned that I needed to fill out the IRS Form 709 for taxes. I superfunded over 2 years which made it slightly more complicated. I found Form 709 (and many other tax forms for that matter!) hard to understand how to complete correctly. You wouldn’t believe how much time I exhausted trying to figure out how to fill out a few boxes. Eventually, I got help from the following resources, which were lifesavers. Hope they help you, too!

My sample of completed Form 709 for superfunding 529s

Through a variety of the resources I found, I think I got the gist of it and cobbled together a sample of completing a Form 709 for superfunding (across two years), and the Form 709’s attached explanation text. Not 100% sure though, so take it all with a grain of salt!
