Tax Deduction Consulting: 401(k) Deductions

401(K) IRS Deductions

The 401(K) Retirement plan is a method established by the IRS that allows an employee to save for retirement while at the same time deferring his tax obligation to a later date. Where is this deduction taken on your tax forms?

The 401(k) plan is named after a section in the IRS codes. It is a type of retirement plan that is established for employees. It allows them to save a certain portion of their income in a plan that is designed to produce earnings while at the same time deferring a portion of the current tax obligation. The word deferring is used because the tax on the earnings will be paid eventually. The idea behind the 401(K) is that after retirement age, earning will be reduced and deductions higher and this would be a better time to assume the tax obligation than at the current time.

The amount of income that can be deposited to the 401(k) plan in any given year is limited. The limit for the 2007 tax year is $15,500.

This will result in a substantial reduction in tax obligation even before any other deductions or credits are applied.

The $15,500 will be invested in various ways while in your 401(k) and will produce earnings. These earnings will not be subject to tax either until they are withdrawn after retirement. The 401(k) plan has only a few drawbacks and they mostly involve withdrawing of the funds before retirement age. It is possib...
