401k Tax Deferment Max

I've experienced a pretty nice increase in pay and am currently on a 6 to 6 matching contribution from my employer.

Is the max $17,500 deferal rate the most I can contribute tax free individually or does that include the employer contribution as well?

You can contribute up to 17,500. Your employer can go beyond this to some number like $51,000 or so.

ETA: $52,000 this year. So they can contribute $34,500 ($52,000 - $17,500 = $34,500)

If you work for an employer who does this, I have a resume ready.

I thought the $17,500 was a combined max for employee and employer. I feel pretty dumb now.

Employer can't contribute any match amount on earnings over 250k or so

As an independent contractor, how much tax deferred money can I put away (no match obviously)? I hope it's not just 17500...
