State taxes free e file 3. State taxes free e file   Limit on Annual Additions Table of Contents Ministers and church employees. State taxes free e file Includible Compensation for Your Most Recent Year of ServiceMost Recent Year of Service Includible Compensation The first component of MAC is the limit on annual additions. State taxes free e file This is a limit on the total contributions (elective deferrals, nonelective contributions, and after-tax contributions) that can be made to your 403(b) account. State taxes free e file The limit on annual additions generally is the lesser of: $51,000 for 2013 and $52,000 for 2014, or 100% of your includible compensation for your most recent year of service. State taxes free e file More than one 403(b) account. State taxes free e file If you contributed to more than one 403(b) account, you must combine the contributions made to all 403(b) accounts on your behalf by your employer. State taxes free e file Ministers and church employees. State taxes free e file   If you are a minister or a church employee, you may be able to increase your limit on annual additions or use different rules when figuring your limit on annual additions. State taxes free e file For more information, see chapter 5. State taxes free e file Participation in a qualified plan. State taxes free e file If you participated in a 403(b) plan and a qualified plan, you must combine contributions made to your 403(b) account with contributions to a qualified plan and simplified employee pensions of all corporations, partnerships, and sole proprietorships in which you have more than 50% control. State taxes free e file You can use Part I of Worksheet 1 in chapter 9 to figure your limit on annual additions. State taxes free e file Includible Compensation for Your Most Recent Year of Service Definition. State taxes free e file   Generally, includible compensation for your most recent year of service is the amount of taxable wages and benefits you received from the employer that maintained a 403(b) account for your benefit during your most recent year of service. State taxes free e file When figuring your includible compensation for your most recent year of service, keep in mind that your most recent year of service may not be the same as your employer's most recent annual work period. State taxes free e file This can happen if your tax year is not the same as your employer's annual work period. State taxes free e file When figuring includible compensation for your most recent year of service, do not mix compensation or service of one employer with compensation or service of another employer. State taxes free e file Most Recent Year of Service Your most recent year of service is your last full year of service, ending on the last day of your tax year that you worked for the employer that maintained a 403(b) account on your behalf. State taxes free e file Tax year different from employer's annual work period. State taxes free e file   If your tax year is not the same as your employer's annual work period, your most recent year of service is made up of parts of at least two of your employer's annual work periods. State taxes free e file Example. State taxes free e file A professor who reports her income on a calendar-year basis is employed on a full-time basis by a university that operates on an academic year (October through May). State taxes free e file To figure her includible compensation for 2013, the professor's most recent year of service is her service from January through May 2013 and from October through December 2013. State taxes free e file Figuring Your Most Recent Year of Service To figure your most recent year of service, begin by determining what is a full year of service for your position. State taxes free e file A full year of service is equal to full-time employment for your employer's annual work period. State taxes free e file After identifying a full year of service, begin counting the service you have provided for your employer starting with the service provided in the current year. State taxes free e file Part-time or employed only part of the year. State taxes free e file   If you are a part-time or a full-time employee who is employed for only part of the year, your most recent year of service is your service this year and your service for as many previous years as is necessary to total 1 full year of service. State taxes free e file To determine your most recent year of service, add the following periods of service: Your service during the year for which you are figuring the limit on annual additions, and Your service during your preceding tax years until the total service equals 1 year of service or you have figured all of your service with the employer. State taxes free e file Example. State taxes free e file You were employed on a full-time basis from July through December 2011 (1/2 year of service), July through December 2012 (1/2 year of service), and October through December 2013 (1/4 year of service). State taxes free e file Your most recent year of service for computing your limit on annual additions for 2013 is the total of your service during 2013 (1/4 year of service), your service during 2012 (1/2 year of service), and your service during the months October through December 2011 (1/4 year of service). State taxes free e file Not yet employed for 1 year. State taxes free e file   If, at the close of the year, you have not yet worked for your employer for 1 year (including time you worked for the same employer in all earlier years), use the period of time you have worked for the employer as your most recent year of service. State taxes free e file Includible Compensation After identifying your most recent year of service, the next step is to identify the includible compensation associated with that full year of service. State taxes free e file Includible compensation is not the same as income included on your tax return. State taxes free e file Compensation is a combination of income and benefits received in exchange for services provided to your employer. State taxes free e file Generally, includible compensation is the amount of income and benefits: Received from the employer who maintains your 403(b) account, and Must be included in your income. State taxes free e file Includible compensation includes the following amounts. State taxes free e file Elective deferrals (employer's contributions made on your behalf under a salary reduction agreement). State taxes free e file Amounts contributed or deferred by your employer under a section 125 cafeteria plan. State taxes free e file Amounts contributed or deferred, at the election of the employee, under an eligible section 457 nonqualified deferred compensation plan (state or local government or tax-exempt organization plan). State taxes free e file  Note. State taxes free e file For information about treating elective deferrals under section 457 plans as Roth contributions, see Publication 575. State taxes free e file Wages, salaries, and fees for personal services earned with the employer maintaining your 403(b) account. State taxes free e file Income otherwise excluded under the foreign earned income exclusion. State taxes free e file Pre-tax contributions (employer's contributions made on your behalf according to your election) to a qualified transportation fringe benefit plan. State taxes free e file Includible compensation does not include the following items. State taxes free e file Your employer's contributions to your 403(b) account. State taxes free e file Compensation earned while your employer was not an eligible employer. State taxes free e file Your employer's contributions to a qualified plan that: Are on your behalf, and Are excludable from income. State taxes free e file The cost of incidental life insurance. State taxes free e file See Cost of Incidental Life Insurance, later. State taxes free e file If you are a church employee or a foreign missionary, figure includible compensation using the rules explained in chapter 5. State taxes free e file Contributions after retirement. State taxes free e file   Nonelective contributions may be made for an employee for up to 5 years after retirement. State taxes free e file These contributions would be based on includible compensation for the last year of service before retirement. State taxes free e file Cost of Incidental Life Insurance Includible compensation does not include the cost of incidental life insurance. State taxes free e file If all of your 403(b) accounts invest only in mutual funds, then you have no incidental life insurance. State taxes free e file If you have an annuity contract, a portion of the cost of that contract may be for incidental life insurance. State taxes free e file If so, the cost of the insurance is taxable to you in the year contributed and is considered part of your basis when distributed. State taxes free e file Your employer will include the cost of your insurance as taxable wages in box 1 of Form W-2. State taxes free e file Not all annuity contracts include life insurance. State taxes free e file Contact your plan administrator to determine if your contract includes incidental life insurance. State taxes free e file If it does, you will need to figure the cost of life insurance each year the policy is in effect. State taxes free e file Figuring the cost of incidental life insurance. State taxes free e file If you have determined that part of the cost of your annuity contract is for an incidental life insurance premium, you will need to determine the amount of the premium and subtract it from your includible compensation. State taxes free e file To determine the amount of the life insurance premiums, you will need to know the following information. State taxes free e file The value of your life insurance contract, which is the amount payable upon your death. State taxes free e file The cash value of your life insurance contract at the end of the tax year. State taxes free e file Your age on your birthday nearest the beginning of the policy year. State taxes free e file Your current life insurance protection under an ordinary retirement income life insurance policy, which is the amount payable upon your death minus the cash value of the contract at the end of the year. State taxes free e file You can use Worksheet A, in chapter 9, to determine the cost of your incidental life insurance. State taxes free e file Example. State taxes free e file Your new contract provides that your beneficiary will receive $10,000 if you should die before retirement. State taxes free e file Your cash value in the contract at the end of the first year is zero. State taxes free e file Your current life insurance protection for the first year is $10,000 ($10,000 − 0). State taxes free e file The cash value in the contract at the end of year two is $1,000, and the current life insurance protection for the second year is $9,000 ($10,000 – $1,000). State taxes free e file The 1-year cost of the protection can be calculated by using Figure 3-1, Table of One-Year Term Premiums for $1,000 Life Insurance Protection . State taxes free e file The premium rate is determined based on your age on your birthday nearest the beginning of the policy year. State taxes free e file Figure 3-1.

State taxes free e file Example 1. State taxes free e file Lynne Green, age 44, and her employer enter into a 403(b) plan that will provide her with a $500 a month annuity upon retirement at age 65. State taxes free e file The agreement also provides that if she should die before retirement, her beneficiary will receive the greater of $20,000 or the cash surrender value in the life insurance contract. State taxes free e file Using the facts presented we can determine the cost of Lynne's life insurance protection as shown in Table 3-1. State taxes free e file Lynne's employer has included $28 for the cost of the life insurance protection in her current year's income. State taxes free e file When figuring her includible compensation for this year, Lynne will subtract $28. State taxes free e file Table 3-1. State taxes free e file Worksheet A.

State taxes free e file 07 Figuring Includible Compensation for Your Most Recent Year of Service You can use Worksheet B in chapter 9 to determine your includible compensation for your most recent year of service. State taxes free e file Example. State taxes free e file Floyd has been periodically working full-time for a local hospital since September 2011. State taxes free e file He needs to figure his limit on annual additions for 2014. State taxes free e file The hospital's normal annual work period for employees in Floyd's general type of work runs from January to December. State taxes free e file During the periods that Floyd was employed with the hospital, the hospital has always been eligible to provide a 403(b) plan to employees. State taxes free e file Additionally, the hospital has never provided the employees with a 457 deferred compensation plan, a transportation fringe benefit plan, or a cafeteria plan. State taxes free e file Floyd has never worked abroad and there is no life insurance provided under the plan. State taxes free e file Table 3-3 shows the service Floyd provided to his employer, his compensation for the periods worked, his elective deferrals, and his taxable wages. State taxes free e file Table 3-3. State taxes free e file Floyd's Compensation Note. State taxes free e file This table shows information Floyd will use to figure includible compensation for his most recent year of service. State taxes free e file   Year Years of Service Taxable Wages Elective Deferrals 2014 6/12 of  a year $42,000 $2,000 2013 4/12 of  a year $16,000 $1,650 2012 4/12 of  a year $16,000 $1,650 Before Floyd can figure his limit on annual additions, he must figure includible compensation for his most recent year of service. State taxes free e file Because Floyd is not planning to work the entire 2014 year, his most recent year of service will include the time he is planning to work in 2014 plus time he worked in the preceding 3 years until the time he worked for the hospital totals 1 year. State taxes free e file If the total time he worked is less than 1 year, Floyd will treat it as if it were 1 year. State taxes free e file He figures his most recent year of service shown in the following list. State taxes free e file Time he will work in 2014 is 6/12 of a year. State taxes free e file Time worked in 2013 is 4/12 of a year. State taxes free e file All of this time will be used to determine Floyd's most recent year of service. State taxes free e file Time worked in 2012 is 4/12 of a year. State taxes free e file Floyd only needs 2 months of the 4 months he worked in 2012 to have enough time to total 1 full year. State taxes free e file Because he needs only one-half of the actual time he worked, Floyd will use only one-half of his income earned during that period to calculate wages that will be used in figuring his includible compensation. State taxes free e file Using the information provided in Table 3-3, wages for Floyd's most recent year of service are $66,000 ($42,000 + $16,000 + $8,000). State taxes free e file His includible compensation for his most recent year of service is figured as shown in Table 3-4. State taxes free e file After figuring his includible compensation, Floyd determines his limit on annual additions for 2014 to be $52,000, the lesser of his includible compensation, $70,475 (Table 3-4), and the maximum amount of $52,000.
