Tax Sheltered Annuities

A 403(b) tax-sheltered annuity (TSA) allows an employee to make contributions from his income into a retirement plan. The contributions are deducted from the employee's income and, as a result, the contributions and related benefits are not taxed until the employee withdraws them from the plan. Because the employer can also make direct contributions to the plan, the employee gains the benefit of having additional tax-free funds accruing.
