You are right, I thought sep and Roth contributions were mutually exclusive (or more important one counted against the other).

I was aware of the calculation, but I guess I was unclear. I was suggesting if you had exactly 10,000 to invest after paying you end of year tax you could put it in a sep, decreasing your tax burden by 10,000 and with the 30% or so saved place that extra 3,000 into investments. Neither here nor there though, you have answered my questions and in so doing created more questions! Lol I am off to the retirement board!
