In IR-2008-118, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced increases to the limits on deferral contributions for 2009 under §401(k), §403(b), and §457(e)(15). These limitations are codified in those sections of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (IRC). Under IRC §415, the Commissioner of the IRS is required to adjust the plan limitations to keep pace with inflation. For 2009, the deferral contribution limitation will increase from $15,500 for 2008 to $16,500 for 2009. The age 50 and over catch-up contribution will also increase from $5,000 for 2008 to $5,500 for 2009 for individuals who plan to reach age 50 before the end of 2009. Contact Vision Payroll if you have questions on changes to these deferral contribution limits.
