Simple IRA Contribution
Designed to encourage small businesses to adopt retirement plans for their employees. An eligible employer may be a self-employed individual, a partnership, or a corporation. A SIMPLE IRA plan permits employees to make salary-reduction contributions to SIMPLE IRAs. Employers are required to either make matching or non-elective contributions to these SIMPLE IRAs.
A SIMPLE IRA plan may be established for the year no later than October 1 of that year (generally). Please consult with your attorney and tax advisor because of the tax and legal consequences.
