I think I've been in this business too long. Can someone tell me if for the 415 Annual Limit do you include the catch-up deferral amount? i.e. 15,500 + 5,000 + 29,500 = a total of 50,000 to max a owner out in 2007. I thought that was the case, but someone told me differently, in that the $45,000 for 2007 includes the catchup for age 50 & over.

Catchups do not count against the 415 limit.

Young folks are limited to $45,000 for 2007.

Old folks (50 and up) can get $50,000 for 2007 if $5,000 of that is a catchup deferral.
