Happy New Years Eve! What a year. I must say that with all that this dumpster fire of a year has bestowed upon us, it also has helped me gain new perspective, and a path toward financial independence. I’m very fortunate to be employed, and simply this year made it easy to save and invest rather than spend.
In the past three years, I’ve gone from debt, to zero net worth, to over 160K! It feels amazing! I am fortunate enough to contribute $2625 a month to investments currently spread across TSP, Vanguard Roth, and a Betterment individual taxable account.
Ok so here’s my simple question… Is the combined limit for tax advantaged accounts 19,500? IE is the limit for both my 401k (TSP) and my Roth? Or can I contribute 19,500 to my TSP and 6,000 to my Roth totaling 25,500? Will the IRS slam me with a 6% tax for exceeding contribution limits? Or is the institution non the wiser?
