<<<I have posts on this oard from when I did my research; when finally chose Utah's plan (in part because there are no state income tax benefits in Texas).>>>

"Do you have to use a program in the state you live in?"

No. It may be advantageous from a state tax law perspective, but you are not required to use the program in the state in which you live.

"A lot can happen in the next 15 years (moving residences for either one of us), and I've never been clear on which state to use."

"You pays your money and takes your chances." Popeye

But some basic research can help.
