MadCapitalist,

Thanks for your reply. On other question...Spreading it over twelve months gives me the advantage of lower taxes per pay period, right?


The total tax savings would be the same either way you do it. The total tax savings = Contributions for the year X Marginal tax rate.

Spreading it over twelve months would only change the timing of the tax savings, not the amount.
