As an independent contractor who makes about $145,000 per year, what are my best options to save for retirement?
100% of people found this answer helpful

If your goal is to put the absolute most possible into tax-advantaged retirement accounts each year then a solo - 401(k) will be your best option. A SEP IRA will be your second best option and depending on a number of other circumstances should be considered. 

Two more things to consider:

1. If you all do not have additional pre-tax/traditional IRAs you and your wife should make non-deductible maximum contributions to IRAs, and then convert them to Roth IRAs. Taking a few additional steps to max out Roth IRAs. 

2. Also a unique idea you might consider woudl be making maximum contributions to your SEP IRA and converting it to a Roth each year. There by getting to contribute way more than the standard $5,500 per person Roth limits.
