Can I claim a state income tax deduction for my contributions to a 529 plan?

Some states offer residents an income tax deduction or credit for contributions to a 529 plan. However, some states restrict this tax benefit to contributions to in-state plans. While other states allow a deduction or credit against state income tax for contributions made to any 529 plan.  A list of state tax deductions can be found in Wealthfront 529 College Savings Plan White Paper.
