you maxed out your deductible contributions to the 401(k) and contributed more to the SEP-IRA. Since those contributions come from the "employer", do you personally report that as income and, either way, is it deductible?

I don't mean to be picky, but 401-k plans allow for elective deferrals
for the employee, they are not deductible.

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