Re: Question about Employer Roth 401K and Individual Roth 40

That actually makes a lot of sense. I don't see myself withdrawing the entire amount of my IRA and 401K at once when I reach retirement age. I will only withdrawl small portions to spend on a yearly basis. I know when you reach retirement, there is a specific logical order that you are supposed to w...

Re: Question about Employer Roth 401K and Individual Roth 40

Ok, I got it now.

Now in theory, if I was able to maximize my contributions to my Employer's 401K and my Individual 401K from my personal business (combined total of $68,500), would this entire amount be tax deductible?

Re: Question about Employer Roth 401K and Individual Roth 40

Okay, so for 2013, I can contribute $17,500 to my employer's 401K plan. And for my individual 401K, I can contribute up to 51K (combined total of employer and employee contributions). I assume that's $25,500 for employer contribution and $25,500 for employee contribution. Is that correct? Now anothe...

Re: Question about Employer matching Roth 401K and Personal

I looked at an old thread and apparently what you are calling a "personal 401k" is a "solo" or "individual" 401k. So it is not an IRA as I suspected. But....if you are a physician, you probably DO NOT want to be using Roth 401k at either of your jobs. The better choice...

Re: Question about Employer matching Roth 401K and Personal

@Bolder Boy.....LOL.....yes, that's exactly what I meant: employee contribution via salary deferral and employer contribution through profit sharing. :wink:

That's good to know that I can contribute to 2 different 401k accounts as long as I don't go over the total annual limit.

Thanks,
Rich

Re: Question about SEP-IRA contribution

Why a SEP-IRA instead of a solo 401k? I'm an independent contractor and was faced with the choice between the two several years ago. I heard all the noise about the 401k being much more difficult to setup, maintain, etc. But, if you look at the paperwork on Vanguards site it's identical between the...

Re: Question about SEP-IRA contribution

You most certainly should take the business deductions. You will be way ahead. Having said that, unless yours is a capital intensive business, your expenses are about 1/2 of the gross. This is literally an automatic audit especially if you have a home office deduction and use of a car for business ...

Backdoor Roth IRA questions

I've been doing a little bit of research about the backdoor/stealth Roth IRA. It sounds relatively easy to do, but there are some details that I don't fully understand. I am a 31 year old physician and recently just graduated from residency. My salary still qualifies for Roth IRA contributions, but ...

But are you allowed to contribute the maximum $5000 to both accounts at the same time in a given year? I was playing around with Turbo Tax by putting in pretend values. It Red fl...

I tried reading some of the official IRS publications and its got A LOT of information - sort of a Gray area for me since I have little experience with it. 2) I know that within 1-2 years, I will no longer qual...
