My company takes after tax out.

So my question is when it says enter any additional contribution after-tax do I have to enter that in or is that already configured into the after-tax my plan is set up to take money from my check after taxes get taken out.

Additional information is required to answer this question with certainty. 

 

  1. What is the contribution for?
  2. In what box is it reported on your W-2, and with what code?

If the contribution is reported on your W-2 with a code that defines what it is, you should not need to enter it a second time.

After tax contributions that are listed on your W-2 form should not be entered again in Turbo Tax. 

 

By definition, an after tax contribution is not deductible. You don't get a deduction when you put money in, but it grows tax free and when you take the money out it is not taxed, assuming you follow the rules and don't take it out early. 

 

Making a retirement contribution of any kind may get you a Retirement Savings Contribution Credit. You can review that section under Deductions & Credits to see if you qualify.

If I was enrolled in the 457b plan in 2019 and they take money out of my check each time I get paid does that mean I contributed?

Yes, you contributed, but Roth IRA contributions are nondeductible, and After-tax contributions that are listed on your W-2 form should not be entered again in Turbo Tax.

Yes, when your employer deduct an amount each month from your paycheck and puts it into your retirement account that means you contributed to the account .
