2021 individual taxes: Answers to your questions about limits

Posted by Admin Posted on Feb 09 2021

It’s understandable if you’re more concerned about your 2020 tax bill than you are about your 2021 tax situation. That’s because your 2020 individual tax return is due to be filed in less than 3 months. However, it’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with tax amounts for this year. For example, the amount you have to earn in 2021 before you can stop paying Social Security on your salary has increased to $142,800 (from $137,700 for 2020). For 2021, you can contribute up to $19,500 (unchanged from 2020) to a 401(k) plan. You can contribute another $6,500 catch-up amount to a 401(k) if you’re age 50 or older.
