Fundamentals Series 09: Allocation and Deduction Limits 
Section 415 of the Code places a cap on the amount of annual additions that may be contributed to a participant’s retirement account. This year the 415 limit is $53,000. Many unique retirement plan features are designed around the 415 limit.
An employer’s primary concern with a 401(k) plan is whether its contributions will be deductible in the year contributed. Section 404 of the Code provides an annual deduction limit. This program discusses both of these key limitations and the consequences of contributing a nondeductible contribution to a 401(k) plan.
