Are you saving for retirement?February 11, 2016
While retirement plan contribution limits have not increased for 2016, taking full advantage of allowable contributions and any amounts your employer matches is still a good idea. Contributions you make to employer-sponsored retirement plans reduce your taxable income because your employer deducts the amount you specify from your paycheck before taxes.
For 2016, you can contribute $18,000 to your 401(k), plus another $6,000 if you’re celebrating your 50th or older birthday during 2016. You can save up to $12,500 in your SIMPLE account this year, plus another $3,000 if you’re age 50 or over.
Feel free to call the office for further information or assistance.
