Tax Sheltered Annuity


  • A form of annuity set up an employer for their employee; because the employee contributes to the annuity from their own income, taxes are deferred until the funds are eventually withdrawn, usually at retirement. Maximum contribution limits may exist, but provisions may also allow employees to "catch up" on contributions they failed to make in previous years.
