Tax Sheltered Annuities (TSA’s)
(Also known as 403b and 457 Plans)
BUSD sponsors two tax sheltered retirement plans for employees to participate in. The Plans are referred to by their Internal Revenue Service Code sections: 403b and 457. Participation in these plans are voluntary.
Both plans allow employees to save for their retirement with tax deferred contributions. Contributions are deducted from the employees pay on a pre- tax basis. This means the employee does not pay taxes on these amounts until they are distributed from their 403b or 457 accounts.
As is common with most things IRS, establishing a 403b or 457, making contributions to, and requesting distributions from the account is strictly controlled by IRS regulations. To assure the District complies with these rules, a Third Party Administrator (TPA) was contracted to review all TSA transactions. BUSD’s TPA is TSACG.
The following documents provide information about BUSD’s 403b and 457 Plans, along with the forms required by the plans.
