There’s still time for small business owners to set up a SEP retirement plan for last year
If you own a business and don’t have a tax-advantaged retirement plan, it’s not too late to establish one and reduce your 2018 tax bill. A Simplified Employee Pension (SEP) can be set up for 2018 as long as you do it before your 2018 income tax return filing deadline. You have until the same deadline to make 2018 contributions and claim a potentially substantial deduction on your 2018 return. Contributions are discretionary and may be as large as $55,000 for 2018. Contact us with questions and to discuss whether it makes sense for you to set up a SEP for 2018.
