***begin*** I was wondering, whether somebody might know if the contributions
These are the facts as I understand them: This guy is an engineer living in New York City who is employed by a company residing in Switzerland. Therefore the Swiss company deducts retirement contributions from his salary and puts them into something like a Swiss 401(k) (the "pension scheme Pillar 2" he refers in his posting). So a % of the contributions to this "401(k)" comes out of his salary and another % is contributed by the Swiss company.
As you can read, he wants to know whether such contributions can be deducted somewhere in his U.S. income tax return.
What do the experts on this newsgroup think?
