414(h) Retirement Contribution Reminder
If you are a member of a Retirement System (ERS, TRS, or TIAA-CREF), and are still making 414 (h) Retirement Contributions (3% or more of gross pay), you must remember to add these contributions to your Federal adjusted gross income on your NYS Personal Income Tax return.
The amount you contributed in the last calendar year will be shown in Box 14 on your W-2 Statement and should be included on Line 21 of Forms IT-201 OR IT-203.
Be sure that any tax preparation software you may use performs this calculation. Failure to add this amount to your Federal adjusted gross income may result in additional payments and interest due.
