Course Description

Course Description

One of the biggest benefits of being self-employed is that there are more retirement plan options available to you than are available to most taxpayers. In addition to the standard traditional IRA/Roth IRA options that everybody has, you have three more noteworthy options:

  • Simplified Employee Pension (SEP-IRA),
  • Savings Incentive Match Plan for Employees (SIMPLE IRA), and
  • Individual 401(k) — sometimes called a solo 401(k) or a self-employed 401(k).

Many small and midsize businesses looking for significant tax deductions come to realize the value in establishing a simplified employee pension plan, otherwise referred to as either a SEP or a SEP-IRA. Not only are SEPs easy to set up, but they also require no tax filings and can be set up as late as the due date of the business's income tax return for a tax year. It is an individual retirement account (IRA) that an employer or a self-employed person can establish.

SIMPLE IRAs also function much like traditional IRAs. Again, the primary difference is the contribution limit. On the other hand, an individual 401(k) plan functions very much like a 401(k) plan with a person’s employer. The difference is that you are allowed to contribute in the role of the employee and a contribution in the role of the employer.

This CE/CPE Tax course speaker John Paul explores the basics of SEP, SIMPLE and Individual 401(k) plans. These plans are retirement plans are designed for small business owners. The benefit of these plans is a tax deduction for contributions made by and on behalf of participants in the plan.
