Self Employed Ministers’ 403(b) Contributions’ Effect on Compensation
“We are a church denominational 403(b)(9) plan which has not elected to be covered by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). Our participants include self-employed ministers. In Publication 571, Tax-Sheltered Annuity Plans (403(b) Plans), the IRS instructs self-employed ministers that their includible compensation is net earnings from ministry minus contributions made to the retirement plan and the deductible portion of their self-employment tax. If the minister makes designated Roth or after-tax contributions to their 403(b) account do those contributions reduce includible compensation since these contributions do not reduce taxable income?”
