AS 14.40.807. Contribution to the Alaska Advance College Tuition Savings Fund.

(a) Contributions to the fund under the terms of an advance college tuition savings contract may be made by direct cash payments or by contributions from the permanent fund dividend. The Department of Revenue shall

(1) prepare the permanent fund dividend application to allow an applicant or a parent, legal guardian, or other authorized representative of an applicant who is an unemancipated minor to contribute 50 percent of a dividend to the fund; and

(2) include with each application for a permanent fund dividend an explanation of the advance college tuition savings program, including the right to receive a refund, a disclosure of the potential tax liability of the fund, and disclosure of the possible general effect of the tax liability on the advance college tuition savings program.

(b) The Department of Revenue shall pay contributions directly to the fund.

(c) In order to assure the actuarial soundness of the fund, the legislature may appropriate annually to the fund the sum, certified by the board to the governor and the legislature, that is necessary to restore the fund to an amount that is actuarially sound. The board annually, before January 30, shall make and deliver to the governor and to the legislature a certificate stating the sum required to restore the fund to an amount that is actuarially sound, and that sum may be appropriated and paid to the fund during that fiscal year. This subsection does not create a debt or liability of the state.
