There is some confusion about whether or not pension contributions are taxable. In general, contributions to a pension plan are considered to be a pre-tax expense.

This means that you will not have to pay taxes on the money that you contribute to your pension plan. However, there may be some exceptions to this rule.

For example, if pay more than your annual allowance, or 100% of your earned income (e.g. salary and/or taxable benefits), you may be subject to additional tax on your pension contributions.
