H&r block free filing 4. H&r block free filing   Limit on Elective Deferrals Table of Contents Excess elective deferrals. H&r block free filing General Limit 15-Year RuleYears of Service Figuring the Limit on Elective DeferralsExample The second and final component of MAC is the limit on elective deferrals. H&r block free filing This is a limit on the amount of contributions that can be made to your account through a salary reduction agreement. H&r block free filing A salary reduction agreement is an agreement between you and your employer that allows for a portion of your compensation to be directly invested in a 403(b) account on your behalf. H&r block free filing You can enter into more than one salary reduction agreement during a year. H&r block free filing More than one 403(b) account. H&r block free filing If, for any year, elective deferrals are contributed to more than one 403(b) account for you (whether or not with the same employer), you must combine all the elective deferrals to determine whether the total is more than the limit for that year. H&r block free filing 403(b) plan and another retirement plan. H&r block free filing If, during the year, contributions in the form of elective deferrals are made to other retirement plans on your behalf, you must combine all of the elective deferrals to determine if they are more than your limit on elective deferrals. H&r block free filing The limit on elective deferrals applies to amounts contributed to: 401(k) plans, to the extent excluded from income, Roth contribution programs, Section 501(c)(18) plans, to the extent excluded from income, Savings incentive match plan for employees (SIMPLE plans), Simplified employee pension (SEP) plans, and All 403(b) plans. H&r block free filing Roth contribution program. H&r block free filing   Your 403(b) plan may allow you to designate all or a portion of your elective deferrals as Roth contributions. H&r block free filing Elective deferrals designated as Roth contributions must be maintained in a separate Roth account and are not excludable from your gross income. H&r block free filing   The maximum amount of contributions allowed under a Roth contribution program is your limit on elective deferrals, less your elective deferrals not designated as Roth contributions. H&r block free filing For more information on the Roth contribution program, see Publication 560, Retirement Plans for Small Business. H&r block free filing Excess elective deferrals. H&r block free filing   If the amount contributed is more than the allowable limit, you must include the excess that is not a Roth contribution in your gross income for the year contributed. H&r block free filing General Limit Under the general limit on elective deferrals, the most that can be contributed to your 403(b) account through a salary reduction agreement is $17,500 for 2013 and 2014. H&r block free filing This limit applies without regard to community property laws. H&r block free filing 15-Year Rule If you have at least 15 years of service with an educational organization (such as a public or private school), hospital, home health service agency, health and welfare service agency, church, or convention or association of churches (or associated organization), the limit on elective deferrals to your 403(b) account is increased by the least of: $3,000, $15,000, reduced by the sum of: The additional pre-tax elective deferrals made in prior years because of this rule, plus The aggregate amount of designated Roth contributions permitted for prior years because of this rule, or $5,000 times the number of your years of service for the organization, minus the total elective deferrals made by your employer on your behalf for earlier years. H&r block free filing If you qualify for the 15-year rule, your elective deferrals under this limit can be as high as $20,500 for 2013 and 2014. H&r block free filing To determine whether you have 15 years of service with your employer, see Years of Service , next. H&r block free filing Years of Service To determine if you are eligible for the increased limit on elective deferrals, you will first need to figure your years of service. H&r block free filing How you figure your years of service depends on whether you were a full-time or a part-time employee, whether you worked for the full year or only part of the year, and whether you have worked for your employer for an entire year. H&r block free filing You must figure years of service for each year during which you worked for the employer who is maintaining your 403(b) account. H&r block free filing If more than one employer maintains a 403(b) account for you in the same year, you must figure years of service separately for each employer. H&r block free filing Definition Your years of service are the total number of years you have worked as a full time employee for the employer maintaining your 403(b) account as of the end of the year. H&r block free filing Figuring Your Years of Service Take the following rules into account when figuring your years of service. H&r block free filing Status of employer. H&r block free filing   Your years of service include only periods during which your employer was a qualified employer. H&r block free filing Your plan administrator can tell you whether or not your employer was qualified during all your periods of service. H&r block free filing Service with one employer. H&r block free filing   Generally, you cannot count service for any employer other than the one who maintains your 403(b) account. H&r block free filing Church employee. H&r block free filing   If you are a church employee, treat all of your years of service with related church organizations as years of service with the same employer. H&r block free filing For more information about church employees, see chapter 5. H&r block free filing Self-employed ministers. H&r block free filing   If you are a self-employed minister, your years of service include full and part years in which you have been treated as employed by a tax-exempt organization that is a qualified employer. H&r block free filing Total years of service. H&r block free filing   When figuring prior years of service, figure each year individually and then add the individual years of service to determine your total years of service. H&r block free filing Example. H&r block free filing The annual work period for full-time teachers employed by ABC Public Schools is September through December and February through May. H&r block free filing Marsha began working with ABC schools in September 2009. H&r block free filing She has always worked full-time for each annual work period. H&r block free filing At the end of 2013, Marsha had 4. H&r block free filing 5 years of service with ABC Public Schools, as shown in Table 4-1. H&r block free filing Table 4-1. H&r block free filing Marsha's Years of Service Note. H&r block free filing This table shows how Marsha figures her years of service, as explained in the previous example.

H&r block free filing 5 year Total years of service 4. H&r block free filing 5 years Full-time or part-time. H&r block free filing   To figure your years of service, you must analyze each year individually and determine whether you worked full-time for the full year or something other than full-time. H&r block free filing When determining whether you worked full-time or something other than full-time, use your employer's annual work period as the standard. H&r block free filing Employer's annual work period. H&r block free filing   Your employer's annual work period is the usual amount of time an individual working full-time in a specific position is required to work. H&r block free filing Generally, this period of time is expressed in days, weeks, months, or semesters, and can span 2 calendar years. H&r block free filing Note. H&r block free filing You cannot accumulate more than 1 year of service in a 12-month period. H&r block free filing Example. H&r block free filing All full-time teachers at ABC Public Schools are required to work both the September through December semester and the February through May semester. H&r block free filing Therefore, the annual work period for full-time teachers employed by ABC Public Schools is September through December and February through May. H&r block free filing Teachers at ABC Public Schools who work both semesters in the same calendar year are considered working a full year of service in that calendar year. H&r block free filing Full-Time Employee for the Full Year Count each full year during which you were employed full-time as 1 year of service. H&r block free filing In determining whether you were employed full-time, compare the amount of work you were required to perform with the amount of work normally required of others who held the same position with the same employer and who generally received most of their pay from the position. H&r block free filing How to compare. H&r block free filing   You can use any method that reasonably and accurately reflects the amount of work required. H&r block free filing For example, if you are a teacher, you can use the number of hours of classroom instruction as a measure of the amount of work required. H&r block free filing   In determining whether positions with the same employer are the same, consider all of the facts and circumstances concerning the positions, including the work performed, the methods by which pay is determined, and the descriptions (or titles) of the positions. H&r block free filing Example. H&r block free filing An assistant professor employed in the English department of a university will be considered a full-time employee if the amount of work that he or she is required to perform is the same as the amount of work normally required of assistant professors of English at that university who get most of their pay from that position. H&r block free filing   If no one else works for your employer in the same position, compare your work with the work normally required of others who held the same position with similar employers or similar positions with your employer. H&r block free filing Full year of service. H&r block free filing   A full year of service for a particular position means the usual annual work period of anyone employed full-time in that general type of work at that place of employment. H&r block free filing Example. H&r block free filing If a doctor works for a hospital 12 months of a year except for a 1-month vacation, the doctor will be considered as employed for a full year if the other doctors at that hospital also work 11 months of the year with a 1-month vacation. H&r block free filing Similarly, if the usual annual work period at a university consists of the fall and spring semesters, an instructor at that university who teaches these semesters will be considered as working a full year. H&r block free filing Other Than Full-Time for the Full Year If, during any year, you were employed full-time for only part of your employer's annual work period, part-time for the entire annual work period, or part-time for only part of the work period, your year of service for that year is a fraction of your employer's annual work period. H&r block free filing Full-time for part of the year. H&r block free filing   If, during a year, you were employed full-time for only part of your employer's annual work period, figure the fraction for that year as follows: The numerator (top number) is the number of weeks, months, or semesters you were a full-time employee. H&r block free filing The denominator (bottom number) is the number of weeks, months, or semesters considered the normal annual work period for the position. H&r block free filing Example. H&r block free filing Jason was employed as a full-time instructor by a local college for the 4 months of the 2013 spring semester (February 2013 through May 2013). H&r block free filing The annual work period for the college is 8 months (February through May and July through October). H&r block free filing Given these facts, Jason was employed full-time for part of the annual work period and provided ½ of a year of service. H&r block free filing Jason's years of service computation for 2013 is as follows: Number of months Jason worked = 4 = 1 Number of months in annual work period 8 2 Part-time for the full year. H&r block free filing   If, during a year, you were employed part-time for the employer's entire annual work period, you figure the fraction for that year as follows: The numerator (top number) is the number of hours or days you worked. H&r block free filing The denominator (bottom number) is the number of hours or days normally required of someone holding the same position who works full-time. H&r block free filing Example. H&r block free filing Vance teaches one course at a local medical school. H&r block free filing He teaches 3 hours per week for two semesters. H&r block free filing Other faculty members at the same school teach 9 hours per week for two semesters. H&r block free filing The annual work period of the medical school is two semesters. H&r block free filing An instructor teaching 9 hours a week for two semesters is considered a full-time employee. H&r block free filing Given these facts, Vance has worked part-time for a full annual work period. H&r block free filing Vance has completed 1/3 of a year of service, figured as shown below. H&r block free filing Number of hours per week Vance worked = 3 = 1 Number of hours per week considered full-time 9 3 Part-time for part of the year. H&r block free filing   If, during any year, you were employed part-time for only part of your employer's annual work period, you figure your fraction for that year by multiplying two fractions. H&r block free filing   Figure the first fraction as though you had worked full-time for part of the annual work period. H&r block free filing The fraction is as follows: The numerator (top number) is the number of weeks, months, or semesters you were a full-time employee. H&r block free filing The denominator (bottom number) is the number of weeks, months, or semesters considered the normal annual work period for the position. H&r block free filing   Figure the second fraction as though you had worked part-time for the entire annual work period. H&r block free filing The fraction is as follows: The numerator (top number) is the number of hours or days you worked. H&r block free filing The denominator (bottom number) is the number of hours or days normally required of someone holding the same position who works full-time. H&r block free filing   Once you have figured these two fractions, multiply them together to determine the fraction representing your partial year of service for the year. H&r block free filing Example. H&r block free filing Maria, an attorney, teaches a course for one semester at a law school. H&r block free filing She teaches 3 hours per week. H&r block free filing The annual work period for teachers at the school is two semesters. H&r block free filing All full-time instructors at the school are required to teach 12 hours per week. H&r block free filing Based on these facts, Maria is employed part-time for part of the annual work period. H&r block free filing Her year of service for this year is determined by multiplying two fractions. H&r block free filing Her computation is as follows: Maria's first fraction Number of semesters Maria worked = 1 Number of semesters in annual work period 2 Maria's second fraction Number of hours Maria worked per week = 3 = 1 Number of hours per week considered full-time 12 4 Maria would multiply these fractions to obtain the fractional year of service: 1 x 1 = 1         2 4 8         Figuring the Limit on Elective Deferrals You can use Part II of Worksheet 1 in chapter 9 to figure the limit on elective deferrals. H&r block free filing Example Floyd has figured his limit on annual additions. H&r block free filing The only other component needed before he can determine his MAC for 2014 is his limit on elective deferrals. H&r block free filing Figuring Floyd's limit on elective deferrals. H&r block free filing   Floyd has been employed with his current employer for less than 15 years. H&r block free filing He is not eligible for the special 15-year increase. H&r block free filing Therefore, his limit on elective deferrals for 2014 is $17,500 as shown in Table 4-2. H&r block free filing Floyd's employer will not make any nonelective contributions to his 403(b) account and Floyd will not make any after-tax contributions. H&r block free filing Additionally, Floyd's employer does not offer a Roth contribution program. H&r block free filing Figuring Floyd's MAC Floyd has determined that his limit on annual additions for 2014 is $52,000 and his limit on elective deferrals is $17,500. H&r block free filing Because elective deferrals are the only contributions made to Floyd's account, the maximum amount that can be contributed to a 403(b) account on Floyd's behalf in 2014 is $17,500, the lesser of both limits. H&r block free filing Table 4-2. H&r block free filing Worksheet 1. H&r block free filing Maximum Amount Contributable (MAC) Note. H&r block free filing Use this worksheet to figure your MAC. H&r block free filing Part I. H&r block free filing Limit on Annual Additions     1. H&r block free filing Enter your includible compensation for your most recent year of service 1.
