Greetings, Tisha, and welcome. You asked:
<<My husband set up a 401K (I thought) through his work. I was fine (very happy!) with that.
It turns out that it's a keogh profit sharing plan.
What in tarnation is this exactly???
What is the maximum he can contribute to it yearly?>>
A Keogh is a qualified retirement plan for the self-employed. For a general description, see my Foolish Retirement Plan Primer at http://www.fool.com/Retirement/Retirement.htm. You should also read IRS Publication 560 (Retirement Plans for Small Business) available at http://www.irs.ustreas.gov/prod/forms_pubs/index.html. Both will give you a good overview that should answer your questions.
