How much can I contribute as an employer-side contribution to my SEP IRA?

You'll be limited to 20% of the net income from your self-employment. (There's a hard dollar limit as well, but that's somewhere around $50k, so the percentage limit will affect you first.) On $30k of NET income, that would be $6000. Technically, a little less, as I'm pretty sure you reduce your net income by the deductible part of your social security taxes as well.

Such a SEP contribution would be considered to be employer coverage for you, so you would be subject to the lower limits for deducting traditional IRA contributions.
