Plans can carryover the nondeductable contribution from prior years in order to take the deduction in the following year. The employer cannot deduct employee voluntary contributions.

1994 - Limit is 15,000 ER made 13,000 OK

1995 - Limit is 21,000 ER made 25,000 therefore 4,000 is not deductable but can be carried over to 1996

1996 - Limit is 24,000 ER made 22,500 plus 95 carryover of 4,000 equals a total of 26,500 leaving a 2,500 nondeductable contribution for 1996.
