To make matters more confusing, my wife’s pension contribution hit the $58k limit for 2021 on this last paycheck in December. When that happened, the employer automatically stopped the contributions to that account and contributed the excess to a 415, which I had no idea existed. The IRS also said the amount of employee compensation that can be considered in calculating pension benefits and contributions to defined contribution plans will rise to $260,000 from $255,000.

- The modified AGI phase-out range for taxpayers making contributions to a Roth IRA is $181,000 to $191,000 for married couples filing jointly, up from $178,000 to $188,000.
- The limitation under Section 408 regarding SIMPLE retirement accounts remains unchanged at $12,500.
