Should post-tax 401k contributions show up on my W2? (I only did post-tax contributions, and got pre-tax gains)

My accountant says yes, but my company’s payroll team says no.

Any advice much appreciated.

Does your company take it from your paycheck?

STA1 yes. What’s the difference?

If your employer is deducting it I’d expect it on my w2. If they aren’t then it wouldn’t be on your W2

I don't think so. Post-tax contributions don't lower your taxable income. Also how do you have a pre-tax gain in a post-tax account?

Should be in box 12

Under 26, so still under my parents’ health insurance - I have a younger sister as well so I don’t think it’s an added expense for them to have me on it as well. Have the option to sign up for my employer’s HDHP plan - no premiums and they contribute $1,000 per year to my HSA. Sounds like free money, but is there a reason I’m missing that favors just staying on my parents’?

In February of this year I was approached by a company out of Colorado that’s an AWS reseller (I love working w/ AWS Products). They offered a great 6-figure salary, unlimited PTO, full medical/ dental & Wellness benefits. Things felt too good to be true at first yet I know my worth and thought about time, a company finally saw my worth also, so I resigned from the company I spent over 12+ years with. Things were going great, then June I was placed on a bogus PIP (fully Corrected) then laid off.

If I've maxed out my TFSA, should I continue investing through an RRSP or a personal investment account?

For context, I also have a good pension. My main concern is that while the RRSP will be nice to lower my taxable income now, I'm worried when I retire I'll have to withdraw too much from both the RRSP and pension. Thoughts?

I’m tired of pretending to know what an NFT is and why it’s any different from a PDF or JPEG doc.

Is there any reason beyond fund differences / fees that you wouldn't max your HSA before maxing 401k if your company does a 401k contribution (rather than match)?
