The Roth limit has nothing to do with the 401(k) deferral limt. She must be over the AGI limit for Roth contributions. The software has worksheets showing the calculation. If she overcontributed by $300 she can withdraw it, plus earnings by April 15.

She is over the AGI limit. I didn't realize. AGI was an issue.
