Reporting TSP contributions on tax forms


Q: When I am filing my simple taxes, do I need to include my 5 percent Thrift Savings Plan contributions as an investment anywhere in my return? I did not receive any IRS Form 1099s from the TSP, but want to ensure I do the right thing.

A: Your TSP contributions do not need to be reported as an investment. The contributions are reported to you on your W-2.
