Do I report contributions on my tax return? How much can be contributed to my 403(b) account? What Is a 403(b) Plan? 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. I need to file 2010 taxes Individual accounts in a 403(b) plan can be any of the following types. I need to file 2010 taxes 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.

I need to file 2010 taxes See chapter 10, Retirement Savings Contributions Credit (Saver's Credit) . I need to file 2010 taxes Excluded. I need to file 2010 taxes   If an amount is excluded from your income, it is not included in your total wages on your Form W-2. I need to file 2010 taxes This means that you do not report the excluded amount on your tax return. I need to file 2010 taxes Deducted. I need to file 2010 taxes   If an amount is deducted from your income, it is included with your other wages on your Form W-2.
