Forms 1040 es Introduction This publication discusses retirement plans you can set up and maintain for yourself and your employees. Forms 1040 es In this publication, “you” refers to the employer. Forms 1040 es See chapter 1 for the definition of the term employer and the definitions of other terms used in this publication. Forms 1040 es This publication covers the following types of retirement plans. Forms 1040 es SEP (simplified employee pension) plans. Forms 1040 es SIMPLE (savings incentive match plan for employees) plans. Forms 1040 es Qualified plans (also called H. Forms 1040 es R. Forms 1040 es 10 plans or Keogh plans when covering self-employed individuals), including 401(k) plans. Forms 1040 es SEP, SIMPLE, and qualified plans offer you and your employees a tax-favored way to save for retirement. Forms 1040 es You can deduct contributions you make to the plan for your employees. Forms 1040 es If you are a sole proprietor, you can deduct contributions you make to the plan for yourself. Forms 1040 es You can also deduct trustees' fees if contributions to the plan do not cover them. Forms 1040 es Earnings on the contributions are generally tax free until you or your employees receive distributions from the plan. Forms 1040 es Under a 401(k) plan, employees can have you contribute limited amounts of their before-tax (after-tax, in the case of a qualified Roth contribution program) pay to the plan. Forms 1040 es These amounts (and the earnings on them) are generally tax free until your employees receive distributions from the plan or, in the case of a qualified distribution from a designated Roth account, completely tax free. Forms 1040 es What this publication covers. Forms 1040 es   This publication contains the information you need to understand the following topics. Forms 1040 es What type of plan to set up. Forms 1040 es How to set up a plan. Forms 1040 es How much you can contribute to a plan. Forms 1040 es How much of your contribution is deductible. Forms 1040 es How to treat certain distributions.

Forms 1040 es   SEPs provide a simplified method for you to make contributions to a retirement plan for yourself and your employees. Forms 1040 es Instead of setting up a profit-sharing or money purchase plan with a trust, you can adopt a SEP agreement and make contributions directly to a traditional individual retirement account or a traditional individual retirement annuity (SEP-IRA) set up for yourself and each eligible employee. Forms 1040 es SIMPLE plans. Forms 1040 es   Generally, if you had 100 or fewer employees who received at least $5,000 in compensation last year, you can set up a SIMPLE plan. Forms 1040 es Under a SIMPLE plan, employees can choose to make salary reduction contributions rather than receiving these amounts as part of their regular pay. Forms 1040 es In addition, you will contribute matching or nonelective contributions. Forms 1040 es The two types of SIMPLE plans are the SIMPLE IRA plan and the SIMPLE 401(k) plan. Forms 1040 es Qualified plans. Forms 1040 es   The qualified plan rules are more complex than the SEP plan and SIMPLE plan rules. Forms 1040 es However, there are advantages to qualified plans, such as increased flexibility in designing plans and increased contribution and deduction limits in some cases. Forms 1040 es Table 1.
