Making 2020 profit sharing contribution now

Post by liontamer » Wed Mar 25, 2020 10:34 pm

I have an S-Corp through which I have set up a Solo 401k. My plan is to take the maximum salary deferral, plus contribute 25% of salary as profit sharing in 2020.

My question is: can I contribute the entire 25% profile sharing amount for 2020 today? If so, what's the best way to fix any overpayments that may result from an unanticipated reduction in salary later in the year?

I front load my solo 401k on January 03rd for the past 2 years. But there is a huge risk if I don't make the appropriate amount of money. Fortunately I have been enough over the income needed to qualify for the maximum contribution limit for several years now.

I have only read that undoing contributions is a messy, sometimes impossible, task. I cross my fingers for you that SpiritRider chimes in.
