Today TaxMama hears from Dec over the Internet. He says, “Thanks for the solo 401(k) tip in your recent article on MarketWatch.com. If you have any other info available I would appreciate it.”
That’s a broad question. There’s a lot of information out there about these versatile accounts.
Some of the earliest material out there is in an article I wrote in 2002, when they were first offered.
One of the biggest benefits of the solo 401(k) account is that the small business owner can borrow from it, the way employees of large corporations can from their 401(k)s.
The only drawback is, your business must be so small that you can’t have any employees – only owners.
There’s actually a lot of information out there – just Google solo 401(k).
Work with someone who’s experienced with these accounts so you are sure to get all the i’s dotted, etc. Otherwise, making mistakes can be expensive.
And remember, you can find answers to all kinds of questions about solo 401(k)s and other tax issues, free. Where? Where else?
