|Subject: Roth SEP?||Date: 9/26/1998 6:35 AM|
|Author: KCofMaine||Number: 5648 of 78150|
I have been trying to figure out how to get more into my Roth IRA. My wife and I are fully funding our own Roth IRAs.
I am self employed. I can do a SEP (Simplified Employee Pension Plan). I have no employees, therefore, don't need to also contribute equal amounts for others. I can give up to just a little less than 15% of my Schedule C income into such a vehicle. This vehicle seems to be pretty interchangeable with IRAs, in as much as one can convert his SEP to an IRA...no problem. I am assuming one can change from IRA to SEP too. Can he??
But the real question is this...can the SEP be set up as a Roth style, or must it always be a traditional IRA style vehicle. That is, can the SEP have Roth characteristics--no deductibility of contributions to the plan, but completely tax free growth??
Thanks for your help.
