You're certainly eligible for a SEP-IRA, and you can make a deposit to one for 1999 provided you do so by April 17, 2000. For details, see my Retirement Plan Primer at http://www.fool.com/Retirement/Retirement.htm and IRS Publication 560 (Retirement Plans for Small Business) available at http://www.irs.ustreas.gov/prod/forms_pubs/index.html.
