Hi All,

I'd like to ask some advice regarding an excess contribution issue.

Last year, I made a job change and, in the process, made deferred contributions to two seperate 401-k plans. Because I didn't watch closely enough, I over-contributed for 2006.

This weekend, I began my taxes with TurboTax. While it identified that I contributed too much, it doesn't provide a remedy--other than read IRS publication 584. I read through it but still don't understand how to fix this situation. Can anyone advise me?
