Greetings, Meowiz, and welcome.<<1) What is a Keogh, exactly? (I told you, very basic questions...!)2) Why have a Keogh and IRA...to be able to put more away for retirement every year?3) 26.77% sounds good to me. Am I missing something faulty here? 4) When is this taxed? Are the capital gains taxed every year? What happens when I reach retirement age?5) Any other insights about this?>>Others have answered most of your questions. For info on Keoghs, SEPs, and SIMPLEs refer to our Foolish Retirement Plan Primer at this link: http://www.fool.com/retirement You should also get and read IRS Publication 560, Retirement Plans for Small Business (SEP, Keogh and SIMPLE Plans) available at: http://www.irs.ustreas.gov/prod/forms_pubs/index.htmlBoth will help you clarify your understanding of what's available and what you've got.<<After reading all past msgs from this site on Keogh's, I have another question.....if I understood the comments correctly....if one earns more than 40K/year, and has a Keogh, their IRA is not tax deductible. If we file taxes as married-joint filers, does this mean including my husband's salary, or just my own as far as deducting the IRA 2K if I also have a Keogh? >>If your joint AGI is over $50K, then your IRA contribution is not deductible. Part is deductible if your AGI is between $40K and $50K. Also, if your spouse is not covered by the Keogh or by any employer's plan, then his IRA contribution is deductible in full until your joint AGI reaches $150K.<< Since I am self-employed, and I arranged for the Keogh myself, do you mean I am the employer? (this reminds me of one of the old board msgs I read) By 'company', do you mean ME, or the American Funds investment company?>>As a self-employed person, you are the employer and the plan sponsor even if you are the only participant.Regards…..Pixy
