IRS Announces 2023 Retirement Plan Contribution, Benefit Limits
The IRS announced the changes to the dollar limits on benefits and contributions under qualified retirement plans, as well as other items, for tax year 2023 [Notice 2022-55, 10-21-22].
IRC §415, which provides for dollar limits on benefits and contributions under qualified retirement plans, requires that the IRS annually adjust these limits for cost-of-living changes. The IRC also requires various other amounts to be adjusted at the same time and in the same manner as these dollar limits.
The limitation on the exclusion for elective deferrals under §402(g)(1) (e.g., §401(k) and §403(b) plans) increases to $22,500 (from $20,500).
