Contributions to a SEP-IRA are a deductible expense so the maximum contribution rate is lowered from 25% to 20% for self-employed income.

This stuff really gives me a headache!

I use turbo-tax and used their calculations on how much I could contribute to my SEP-IRA. I went back to double check my 2002 tax return after reading your post and sure enough, it was 20%!
