File free federal and state tax return 4. File free federal and state tax return   Limit on Elective Deferrals Table of Contents Excess elective deferrals. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return This is a limit on the amount of contributions that can be made to your account through a salary reduction agreement. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return You can enter into more than one salary reduction agreement during a year. File free federal and state tax return More than one 403(b) account. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return 403(b) plan and another retirement plan. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return Roth contribution program. File free federal and state tax return   Your 403(b) plan may allow you to designate all or a portion of your elective deferrals as Roth contributions. File free federal and state tax return Elective deferrals designated as Roth contributions must be maintained in a separate Roth account and are not excludable from your gross income. File free federal and state tax return   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. File free federal and state tax return For more information on the Roth contribution program, see Publication 560, Retirement Plans for Small Business. File free federal and state tax return Excess elective deferrals. File free federal and state tax return   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. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return This limit applies without regard to community property laws. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return To determine whether you have 15 years of service with your employer, see Years of Service , next. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return You must figure years of service for each year during which you worked for the employer who is maintaining your 403(b) account. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return Figuring Your Years of Service Take the following rules into account when figuring your years of service. File free federal and state tax return Status of employer. File free federal and state tax return   Your years of service include only periods during which your employer was a qualified employer. File free federal and state tax return Your plan administrator can tell you whether or not your employer was qualified during all your periods of service. File free federal and state tax return Service with one employer. File free federal and state tax return   Generally, you cannot count service for any employer other than the one who maintains your 403(b) account. File free federal and state tax return Church employee. File free federal and state tax return   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. File free federal and state tax return For more information about church employees, see chapter 5. File free federal and state tax return Self-employed ministers. File free federal and state tax return   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. File free federal and state tax return Total years of service. File free federal and state tax return   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. File free federal and state tax return Example. File free federal and state tax return The annual work period for full-time teachers employed by ABC Public Schools is September through December and February through May. File free federal and state tax return Marsha began working with ABC schools in September 2009. File free federal and state tax return She has always worked full-time for each annual work period. File free federal and state tax return At the end of 2013, Marsha had 4. File free federal and state tax return 5 years of service with ABC Public Schools, as shown in Table 4-1. File free federal and state tax return Table 4-1. File free federal and state tax return Marsha's Years of Service Note.

File free federal and state tax return 5 years Full-time or part-time. File free federal and state tax return   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. File free federal and state tax return When determining whether you worked full-time or something other than full-time, use your employer's annual work period as the standard. File free federal and state tax return Employer's annual work period. File free federal and state tax return   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. File free federal and state tax return Generally, this period of time is expressed in days, weeks, months, or semesters, and can span 2 calendar years. File free federal and state tax return Note. File free federal and state tax return You cannot accumulate more than 1 year of service in a 12-month period. File free federal and state tax return Example. File free federal and state tax return All full-time teachers at ABC Public Schools are required to work both the September through December semester and the February through May semester. File free federal and state tax return Therefore, the annual work period for full-time teachers employed by ABC Public Schools is September through December and February through May. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return Full-Time Employee for the Full Year Count each full year during which you were employed full-time as 1 year of service. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return How to compare. File free federal and state tax return   You can use any method that reasonably and accurately reflects the amount of work required. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return   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. File free federal and state tax return Example. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return   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. File free federal and state tax return Full year of service. File free federal and state tax return   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. File free federal and state tax return Example. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return Full-time for part of the year. File free federal and state tax return   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. File free federal and state tax return The denominator (bottom number) is the number of weeks, months, or semesters considered the normal annual work period for the position. File free federal and state tax return Example. File free federal and state tax return 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). File free federal and state tax return The annual work period for the college is 8 months (February through May and July through October). File free federal and state tax return Given these facts, Jason was employed full-time for part of the annual work period and provided ½ of a year of service. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return   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. File free federal and state tax return The denominator (bottom number) is the number of hours or days normally required of someone holding the same position who works full-time. File free federal and state tax return Example. File free federal and state tax return Vance teaches one course at a local medical school. File free federal and state tax return He teaches 3 hours per week for two semesters. File free federal and state tax return Other faculty members at the same school teach 9 hours per week for two semesters. File free federal and state tax return The annual work period of the medical school is two semesters. File free federal and state tax return An instructor teaching 9 hours a week for two semesters is considered a full-time employee. File free federal and state tax return Given these facts, Vance has worked part-time for a full annual work period. File free federal and state tax return Vance has completed 1/3 of a year of service, figured as shown below. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return   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. File free federal and state tax return   Figure the first fraction as though you had worked full-time for part of the annual work period. File free federal and state tax return The fraction is as follows: The numerator (top number) is the number of weeks, months, or semesters you were a full-time employee. File free federal and state tax return The denominator (bottom number) is the number of weeks, months, or semesters considered the normal annual work period for the position. File free federal and state tax return   Figure the second fraction as though you had worked part-time for the entire annual work period. File free federal and state tax return The fraction is as follows: The numerator (top number) is the number of hours or days you worked. File free federal and state tax return The denominator (bottom number) is the number of hours or days normally required of someone holding the same position who works full-time. File free federal and state tax return   Once you have figured these two fractions, multiply them together to determine the fraction representing your partial year of service for the year. File free federal and state tax return Example. File free federal and state tax return Maria, an attorney, teaches a course for one semester at a law school. File free federal and state tax return She teaches 3 hours per week. File free federal and state tax return The annual work period for teachers at the school is two semesters. File free federal and state tax return All full-time instructors at the school are required to teach 12 hours per week. File free federal and state tax return Based on these facts, Maria is employed part-time for part of the annual work period. File free federal and state tax return Her year of service for this year is determined by multiplying two fractions. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return Example Floyd has figured his limit on annual additions. File free federal and state tax return The only other component needed before he can determine his MAC for 2014 is his limit on elective deferrals. File free federal and state tax return Figuring Floyd's limit on elective deferrals. File free federal and state tax return   Floyd has been employed with his current employer for less than 15 years. File free federal and state tax return He is not eligible for the special 15-year increase. File free federal and state tax return Therefore, his limit on elective deferrals for 2014 is $17,500 as shown in Table 4-2. File free federal and state tax return Floyd's employer will not make any nonelective contributions to his 403(b) account and Floyd will not make any after-tax contributions. File free federal and state tax return Additionally, Floyd's employer does not offer a Roth contribution program. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return 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. File free federal and state tax return Table 4-2. File free federal and state tax return Worksheet 1. File free federal and state tax return Maximum Amount Contributable (MAC) Note. File free federal and state tax return Use this worksheet to figure your MAC. File free federal and state tax return Part I. File free federal and state tax return Limit on Annual Additions     1.
