Hi all, income limit prevents me from contributing to Roth IRA for the current FY. I’m maxing out 401k. The employer doesn’t offer HSA. What else should I be doing to reduce taxes?

Backdoor Roth if over income limit. Mega backdoor Roth if that’s an option (after tax 401k). FSA maybe if you know you’ll have medical expenses.

HSA is almost always tied to a high deductible plan. That makes sense when younger and you have limited medical expenses but someone like my dad who is approaching retirement has a lot more medical expenses so a HDHP isn’t worth doing despite the HSA. He wants a low deductible plan for frequent visits

Are you at EY? We do have an HSA

Maybe his specific plan doesn’t?

Over 20 plus years with this company my base pay has gone up every couple of years. The biggest growth in my salary has come as a "Bonus pd 1x/yr" which now is over 50% of my cash compensation. Base plus bonus plus benefits is on the Lower half of my industry Salary Value from talking to industry colleagues.

I may have an opportunity for a new position with another company starting around the first of the new year. My concern is that the "bonus" is not paid until March. What to do?
