I am starting a limited liability company (LLC). I will be the sole member. Can I open an SEP IRA? How much tax-deferred money would I be able to contribute each year?

Congrats on starting your own LLC, and kudos for saving for retirement. The great news is you can potentially put away 25% of your income into a SEP IRA. 

If you are ambitious, you can contribution $53,000 in 2016. There are no catch –up contributions allowed with SEP-IRA regardless of age. However, you may still be able to contribute to a Traditional IRA or a ROTH IRA depending on your income.


Consult your tax professional for more specifics and to help calculate you actual maximum contribution.


All the best,
