Is calstrs contribution subtracting from AGI?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I’m trying to control  my AGI to maximize the boosted child tax credits and dependent care credits for 2021.  Does anyone know of my calstrs contributions (10.25%) is subtracted from my AGI?  In other words, if my spouse and I earn 200k and 20k goes directly to calstrs contributions and we max our 403bs, one  457, And HSA, can I get under The 125k phase out threshold for the dependent care credit? 

200-20k calstrs-19.5 403b- 19.5 403b -19.5k 457 - 5k DCFSA, -3.5k HSA = 113k.  Does this sound correct?

If your 403b and 457b are Traditional (i.e. not Roth) then it will reduce your taxable income. I can't speak directly to how the dependent care credit includes (or doesn't include) that deduction in it's income limit.
