A 403(b) plan, also known as a tax-sheltered annuity (TSA) plan, is a retirement plan for certain employees of public schools, employees of certain tax-exempt organizations, and certain ministers. E file income tax return Individual accounts in a 403(b) plan can be any of the following types. E file income tax return An annuity contract, which is a contract provided through an insurance company, A custodial account, which is an account invested in mutual funds, or A retirement income account set up for church employees. E file income tax return Generally, retirement income accounts can invest in either annuities or mutual funds. E file income tax return We use the term “403(b) account” to refer to any one of these funding arrangements throughout this publication, unless otherwise specified. E file income tax return What Are the Benefits of Contributing to a 403(b) Plan?  There are three benefits to contributing to a 403(b) plan. E file income tax return The first benefit is that you do not pay income tax on allowable contributions until you begin making withdrawals from the plan, usually after you retire. E file income tax return Allowable contributions to a 403(b) plan are either excluded or deducted from your income. E file income tax return However, if your contributions are made to a Roth contribution program, this benefit does not apply. E file income tax return Instead, you pay income tax on the contributions to the plan but distributions from the plan (if certain requirements are met) are tax free. E file income tax return Note. E file income tax return Generally, employees must pay social security and Medicare tax on their contributions to a 403(b) plan, including those made under a salary reduction agreement. E file income tax return See chapter 4, Limit on Elective Deferrals , for more information. E file income tax return The second benefit is that earnings and gains on amounts in your 403(b) account are not taxed until you withdraw them. E file income tax return Earnings and gains on amounts in a Roth contribution program are not taxed if your withdrawals are qualified distributions. E file income tax return Otherwise, they are taxed when you withdraw them. E file income tax return The third benefit is that you may be eligible to take a credit for elective deferrals contributed to your 403(b) account. E file income tax return See chapter 10, Retirement Savings Contributions Credit (Saver's Credit) . E file income tax return Excluded. E file income tax return   If an amount is excluded from your income, it is not included in your total wages on your Form W-2. E file income tax return This means that you do not report the excluded amount on your tax return. E file income tax return Deducted. E file income tax return   If an amount is deducted from your income, it is included with your other wages on your Form W-2. E file income tax return You report this amount on your tax return, but you are allowed to subtract it when figuring the amount of income on which you must pay tax. E file income tax return Who Can Participate in a 403(b) Plan? Any eligible employee can participate in a 403(b) plan. E file income tax return Eligible employees. E file income tax return   The following employees are eligible to participate in a 403(b) plan. E file income tax return Employees of tax-exempt organizations established under section 501(c)(3). E file income tax return These organizations are usually referred to as section 501(c)(3) organizations or simply 501(c)(3) organizations. E file income tax return Employees of public school systems who are involved in the day-to-day operations of a school.

E file income tax return They function as ministers in their day-to-day professional responsibilities with their employers. E file income tax return   Throughout this publication, the term chaplain will be used to mean ministers described in the third category in the list above. E file income tax return Example. E file income tax return A minister employed as a chaplain by a state-run prison and a chaplain in the United States Armed Forces are eligible employees because their employers are not section 501(c)(3) organizations and they are employed as ministers. E file income tax return Who Can Set Up a 403(b) Account? You cannot set up your own 403(b) account. E file income tax return Only employers can set up 403(b) accounts. E file income tax return A self-employed minister cannot set up a 403(b) account for his or her benefit. E file income tax return If you are a self-employed minister, only the organization (denomination) with which you are associated can set up an account for your benefit. E file income tax return How Can Contributions Be Made to My 403(b) Account? Generally, only your employer can make contributions to your 403(b) account. E file income tax return However, some plans will allow you to make after-tax contributions (defined below). E file income tax return The following types of contributions can be made to 403(b) accounts. E file income tax return Elective deferrals . E file income tax return These are contributions made under a salary reduction agreement. E file income tax return This agreement allows your employer to withhold money from your paycheck to be contributed directly into a 403(b) account for your benefit.

E file income tax return If your contributions are Roth contributions, you pay taxes on your contributions but any qualified distributions from your Roth account are tax free. E file income tax return Nonelective contributions . E file income tax return These are employer contributions that are not made under a salary reduction agreement. E file income tax return Nonelective contributions include matching contributions, discretionary contributions, and mandatory contributions from your employer. E file income tax return You do not pay income tax on these contributions until you withdraw them from the account. E file income tax return After-tax contributions . E file income tax return These are contributions (that are not Roth contributions) you make with funds that you must include in income on your tax return. E file income tax return A salary payment on which income tax has been withheld is a source of these contributions. E file income tax return If your plan allows you to make after-tax contributions, they are not excluded from income and you cannot deduct them on your tax return. E file income tax return A combination of any of the three contribution types listed above. E file income tax return Self-employed minister. E file income tax return   If you are a self-employed minister, you are considered both an employee and an employer, and you can contribute to a retirement income account for your own benefit. E file income tax return Do I Report Contributions on My Tax Return? Generally, you do not report contributions to your 403(b) account (except Roth contributions) on your tax return. E file income tax return Your employer will report contributions on your 2013 Form W-2.
