What the IRS is Up To

Retirement contributions get a slight boost

The amount that individuals can contribute in 2020 to a 401(k) or similar workplace retirement plan has been adjusted for inflation. The new limit is $19,500, up $500 from 2019. If you’re 50 or older in 2020, the 401(k) catch-up contribution limit has also increased to$6,500.

New Jersey minimum wage increase

Beginning on January 1, 2020, New Jersey’s minimum wage increases to $11/hour. However, for small businesses with less than 6 employees and for seasonal employees (May 1 to September 30), the minimum is $10.30/hour.

New 1040 changes

You’ll notice some changes on the new 1040. These include a spot for your spouse’s name if you choose the married/filing separate status, a separate line for IRA distributions, and elimination of the decimal spaces for all fields. A new line asking about cryptocurrency is also in the works.
