The following diagnostic is generating:

The taxpayer's 457(b) contributions exceed the ${TP457BLimit} limit. The excess amount may need to be added to wages. The taxpayer's excess 457(b) contributions can be entered in ""Excess salary deferrals"" (screen 14.1, code 26). If Special 457(b) catch-up contribution is used, the plan allows a participant for 3 years prior to the normal retirement age to contribute the lesser of twice the annual limit or the basic annual limit plus the amount of the basic limit not used in prior years. Refer to Form 1040 instructions for more information.


Will not prevent e-Filing. If preparer feels that amounts are not in excess then they can file and, if they like, attach a statement explaining the reason why the contributions are allowed.
