Does anyone know if the same 401k rules apply at EY as Accenture so they will cap the contributions coming for your check say if you hit the yearly limits in August? So if you hit the 22,500 in 23 there is no way to go over for tax issues. Thinking to frontload next year contributions if market is down. EY

401k question - I know I can only pay $20,500 each year tax free but can I pay more in and get taxed or something? When I set it up it recommends 12% of salary which is going to hit the limit pretty quickly so what’s the deal here? (Not from US originally and this 401k stuff is confusing af)

I am new to the US and was told by everyone how a Roth IRA is a must so I opened a Roth IRA with the institution with which I have my 401k.

I have already opened and maxed out my Roth IRA for 2022 while exceeding the income threshold. Can someone advise me on what to do?

On a side note, why is everything a million times more complicated in the US? From taxes to savings…
