Pretax 401k Contributions for Goal - I want to count the actual amount, not just "contributions from other sources."
Hi! Having issues getting pretax 401k contributions to sync up properly. I've read a few answers, and have found that I can edit the "contributions from other sources."
This works well, however, I want a way to track the actual transaction towards the goal. The deposit into my 401k doesn't show up under "transactions" for some reason, BUT I can get them to show up when I click onto the specific 401k account.
The transactions for each fund it's invested to show up, and I want the goal to track these actual transactions. It would be much easier/user-friendly to track the actual transactions, rather than estimating a "My contribution includes income from other sources" amount.
FWIW, it's a Vanguard account, and I currently have the transactions categorized as "Transfers" > "Pre Tax to 401k" because I don't want the amounts to show up as income, since it's pretax. Maybe categorizing them as something else would help?
Thanks in advance!
