Greetings, Donplurad, and welcome. You asked:

<<As a self-employed,I earned $70,000 this year and would like to know what is the maximum amount I can contribute to my SEP-IRA acount.>>

You may contribute a maximum of the lesser of $30K or 13.0435% of your net earnings from self-employment. See IRS Publication 560 (Retirement Plans for Small Business) available at for details. If $70K is your net self-employment earnings, then you may contribute $9,130 to your SEP-IRA this year.
