Tax-Free Contributions
Updated over a week ago

When an individual participates in a payroll deduction program through an employer, deductions may be taken from payroll before calculating taxable federal income, Social Security, FICA, and for most states, taxable state income.

By taking deductions pre-tax, the individual reduces the dollars on which they are taxed. As a result, the total tax bill is reduced.
