President Trump on Monday adamantly denied reports that the Republican tax plan could drastically reduce the amount of pretax money Americans are allowed to contribute to their 401(k) plans, vowing “NO change” to the retirement account rules.
“There will be NO change to your 401(k). This has always been a great and popular middle class tax break that works, and it stays!” Trump tweeted.
The assurance follows numerous press reports that Republicans are considering lowering the cap on employee contributions. Reports said one possibility could be to lower the annual cap for pretax contributions from the current $18,000 for those under 50 to as low as $2,400.[contentcards url=”http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/10/23/trump-knocks-down-reports-big-401-k-squeeze-in-gop-tax-plan-no-change.html” target=”_blank”]
