FAQ

IRS instructions say to file a Form 8606 if I have "converted an amount from a traditional, SEP, or SIMPLE IRA to a Roth IRA". What about if I have transferred all the money from my traditional 401k directly into a Roth IRA? How do I report this?
You will receive a 1099R with a code G in box 7. Follow the 1040 directions for reporting this, and you’ll be fine. (Line 4a and Line 4b)
I want to rollover a SIMPLE IRA. Should I roll it over to a traditional IRA or another SIMPLE IRA? What would the differences be?
A SIMPLE IRA is an acronym for Savings Incentive Match PLan for Employee. It is an employer-sponsored retirement savings account. Unless you work for another employer who sponsors a SIMPLE, rolling it to another SIMPLE is not an option, so you would have to roll to an IRA or to a new employer’s qualified plan (such as a 401k Plan). One very important thing to remember is while you “can” roll out of a SIMPLE IRA, if you roll to anything other than another SIMPLE IRA before the account is at least 2 years old, IRS will charge you a 50% excise tax on the amount rolled. So be careful.
Can someone with distributions from an LLC use their distributions to contribute to a simple IRA?
Self employed people or anyone working for a company that receives a 1099 and pays taxes on income can open a Simple IRA or Roth account. The amount of money that can be put into it is rather generous and you can goggle that for the latest numbers from the IRS. The only consideration is that you have to have earned income and the that income should be reported to the IRS. You’ll need a social security number to open the IRA or Roth plan.
Who are the best 401(k) providers for small businesses?
I can answer this from two different perspectives - (1) Being a small business owner myself(2) Running a company that offers 401(k)s for small businesses(1) We have around 10 employees at Hedgeable. Some of the things to consider are not only hooking into Quickbooks, but more importantly into your payroll. That will be the tricky part. For instance, TriNet HR Services uses Transamerica for their 401(k), so if you want to use someone else there will be some manual work. Not sure about Zenefits and some of the new HR services, you will have to check with them.Ubiquity has has a good 401(k) option for small businesses. They have some competitors now from Betterment, Captain 401 and others. But Ubiquity has a great management team and knows the market very well.(2) At Hedgeable we focus on small business retirement plans for sole proprietors, LLCs, etc, and offer account types such as Solo 401(k), SIMPLE IRA, and SEP IRA. You get access to an automated solution, risk management, impact investing, and alternatives, without all of the extra fees that a 401(k) might come with (TPA/record keeper, fiduciary, etc). Our fees are the same for a taxable account versus these small business plans - 0.30%-0.75%.There are over 25 Million sole proprietors and single member LLCs in the U.S. alone, and only 750,000 401(k) plans. You can do the math, it's a vastly underserved market.Solo 401(k)With a Individual 401(k) Retirement Plans you and a spouse can contribute up to $18,000 (or $24,000 if you are older than 50). Employers can make non-elective contributions up to 25% or compensation, or as defined by your plan. You can be your own TPA for a Solo 401(k) plan, if your account is less than $250,000 there aren't any tax forms to file! There are also Roth Solo 401(k)s that we offer.SEP IRASEP IRAs are a useful type of account for self-employed or “1099? individuals and have a higher contribution limit than Traditional IRA’s. For 2022. contributions cannot exceed the lesser of 25% of compensation, or $53,000, whichever is smaller.Since there are no employee contributions, it is most useful for a small business owner with no employees. Also, unlike a Solo 401(k), you cannot take advantage of the ROTH option. Historically, SEP IRA’s have been a useful tools for self-employed individuals looking for higher contribution plans to save for retirement. Please consult your tax advisor to determine how much you can contribute to your plan each year.SIMPLE IRAA SIMPLE IRA has been used as a low-cost alternative to 401(k)’s for small businesses. This option allows employees to make contributions, while usually requiring employers to pitch in with employer contributions. Unlike a traditional company 401(k), SIMPLE IRA’s do not require the complexity of third-party-administrators or annual safe-harbor testing. For 2022. employees can contribute up to $12,500 (or $15,500 if they are older than 50). It is common for employer’s to contribute 3% of employees salary with immediate vesting, but this depends on how the plan is set up. SIMPLE IRA’s can not be set up for more than 100 employees at any time during the preceding year. Please note, at this time, the IRS does not allow for a SIMPLE IRA to be a ROTH IRA.Please consult your tax advisor to determine what is most suitable when setting up a plan, and how much you can contribute each tax year.Disclaimer: This is not a solicitation to buy or sell securities or an offer of personal financial advice.

There are many different types of accounts that clients can open (listed below) to serve various goals and objectives: retirement, general wealth accumulation, gifting to a minor, and more.Benefits of Having More than One AccountWith multiple accounts, it can be hard to keep track of. How is one account being managed versus the other? Is one hand washing the other? Many of our clients open up all of their accounts with Hedgeable to ensure that strategies and investment holdings aren't duplicated across their overall financial picture. By doing this, they allow us to manage their full financial picture, to mitigate risk across all account types.Beyond that, it's helpful to have all accounts on one platform.

Through our platform, you can easily start saving for retirement by making contributions from your checking account. Per the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), you can contribute $5,500 to your account per year (or $6,500 if you are older than 50). The funds that you put into the account are tax-deductible; so, the IRS will grant a credit to you, making your IRA contributions effectively before-tax. Your account will grow tax-deferred--that is, you will not pay taxes on any earnings. Once you make a retirement withdrawal after age 591/2, they are taxed as ordinary income without penalty.Rollover IRADo you have 401(k)'s scattered across previous employers? Rollover IRA's allow you to combine 401(k)'s that you may have had at previous employers into one account. By doing this, it allows you to maintain the tax-deferred status from your 401(k), without a penalty. In addition, as your continue to save for retirement and your account size grows, you can take advantage of our fee breakpoints. From an account management and logistics standpoint, the Rollover IRA is essentially the same thing as a Traditional IRA.ROTH IRAMany Hedgeable clients take advantage of a Roth IRA, in addition to a Traditional IRA. Unlike a Traditional IRA, contributions to ROTH IRA's go in after-tax, and are withdrawn tax-free (as long as they are a qualified retirement distributions after age 591/2). This tax-free growth can be compelling for younger clients that want to take advantage of longer time horizons for their retirement. In addition, many clients utilize ROTH conversions, a strategy that recognizes taxes in a Traditional IRA immediately and moves the proceeds to a ROTH IRA. Please consult your tax advisor to determine if ROTH conversions are appropriate for you.Solo 401(k)Did you know that you don’t have to work for a large company to have a 401(k) plan? It is true. Called a Solo or Individual 401(k), this account type allows you and a spouse to take advantage of the same 401(k) rules that employees of large organizations can. In fact, it is one of the most popular Hedgeable account types, and Hedgeable remains the only major digital wealth manager that offers these account types. There are only about 750,000 401(k) plans in America, yet there are over 25 Million sole proprietorships and single member LLCs in America. You can be a young doctor, dentist, lawyer, accountant, painter, landscaper, consultant, recruiter, and dozens of other occupations and get a Solo 401(k) setup. Regardless of professional title, if you are a "1099 employee" or if you own your own business, you may be eligible to open up a personal 401(k). Unlike SEP IRA's, Solo 401(k)'s can be set up to allow loans from the plan.For these plans, contributions are made by the employee and the employer (even though you are effectively both, since you own your own business). Just like Traditional 401(k)'s, employee contributions are limited to $18,000 (or $24,000 if you are older than 50). Employer's can make non-elective contributions up to 25% or compensation, or as defined by your plan. Please consult your tax advisor to determine what is most suitable when setting up a plan, and how much you can contribute each tax year.ROTH Solo 401(k)Hedgeable allows its clients to participate in a ROTH Solo 401(k) for qualifying small business owners or "1099 employees"! These follow the same contribution rules and procedures, the contributions are after-tax instead of pre-tax, akin to ROTH IRA's compared to Traditional IRA's.SEP IRASEP IRA's are a useful type of account for self-employed or "1099" individuals and provides a higher contribution limit than Traditional IRA's. For 2022. contributions cannot exceed the lesser of 25% of compensation, or $53,000, whichever is smaller.Since there are no employee contributions, it is most useful for a small business owner with no employees.

Please note, at this time, the IRS does not allow for a SIMPLE IRA to be a ROTH IRA.Custodial Account (UGMA/UTMA)Custodial accounts are a great way to gift cash or securities to minors. In most states, minors are not allowed to own stocks outright or open an investment account for themselves. Under the Uniform Gift of Minors Act (UGMA) or the Uniform Transfer of Minors Act (UTMA) minors can receive cash or securities while an appointed person (who cannot be a minor) manages the account until the minor reaches the age of majority. You can contribute as much as you want to this account, as long as it complies with the requirements of the gifting limits imposed by the IRS ($14,000, or $28,000 for married couples).Personal & Business Trust AccountsHedgeable accepts personal trust accounts, that can be set up in a variety of forms. Regardless of if the plan is revocable, irrevocable, or a "dynasty trust", we can accept the account and begin to invest for the trust beneficiary's goals and objectives. Trust accounts can be opened for a variety of reasons: planned giving strategies to charities, to give part of an inheritance to someone while abiding by certain rules and stipulations, to care for a mentally challenged or disabled person, among other reasons. Please consult with a trust and estate attorney for future guidance on which trust is most appropriate for you.Businesses can open trust accounts as well, to hold money on behalf of clients, the company, or to met certain regulation requirements. In some cases, it may be appropriate to invest the cash instead of letting it sit in a bank account earning next to nothing in interest.What We Do Not AcceptPlease see my answer on trusts that are available to wealthy Americans.You were born poor, but now you are rich. How do you ensure your family will still be wealthy beyond three generations? We do not offer many of these trust types.Although our clients have multiple accounts with us at Hedgeable, this may not capture their full financial picture. Homes, credit card debt, and mortgages are all examples of assets/liabilities that can not be held at our custodian. To get around this issue, we provide account aggregation services on our platform.Disclaimer: This is not a solicitation to buy or sell securities or an offer of personal financial advice.

Can a person hypothetically max out their 401(k) at one job ($18,500) and then max out a SIMPLE IRA ($12,500) at a second job, thereby giving them a total of $31,000 in tax-deferred savings a year?
From the IRS website about SIMPLE IRAs, “If an employee participates in any other employer plan during the year and has elective salary reductions under those plans, the total amount of the salary reduction contributions that an employee can make to all the plans he or she participates in is limited to $18,500 in 2022 ($18,000 in 2022 - 2017).”So, no you cannot contribute more than the original max of $18,500 total to an employer plan in a year. However, depending on income requirements, you might still be eligible to make $5,500 in contributions to a Roth or Traditional IRA, in addition to your 401k contributions. That could raise your potential tax-deferred savings to a total of $24k.
How do you open an IRA account?
It’s exceptionally simple, as investment tasks go.Go to any brokerage or investment firm • call them or walk into an office. You’ll need to fill out some forms and provide some ID.Familiarize yourself with some basic rules of the road about how much you can contribute (it’s linked to your income, and to some extent, your age.) An IRA gives you maximum flexibility in terms of investment options, since you are choosing them. (In a 401(k), your employer or the plan sponsor picks what goes in there and becomes available to you.)The key choice you’ll need to make up front is whether to create a Roth IRA or an ordinary IRA. The difference is pretty simple: if you open the latter, you do so with pre-tax dollars, but the withdrawals are taxable (and you have to start taking withdrawals the year you turn 70 1/2.) If you create a Roth IRA, which is possible if you earn below certain levels of income (just Google that…) then you can invest after-tax income, but the withdrawals are NOT taxed and you don’t have to start taking withdrawals at any age in particular • you have more flexibility. In either case, the investments earn income free of tax as long as they are invested. A rule of thumb is that if you may be in a higher tax bracket when you retire, it’s a good idea to invest in a Roth. My own, very personal, feeling is that if you don’t absolutely need the tax deduction (and many younger people don’t) because you aren’t facing a big tax bill, then make the contributions to a Roth. It gives you flexibility that you will value later on, AND the tax-free withdrawals, ditto. Plus, hopefully at some point you’ll be earning enough that your ability to fund a Roth will be limited or non-existent. (I suspect at some point Congress will wipe out what are known as “backdoor conversions” of regular IRAs into Roths • a way for rich folks to get the benefits of Roths indirectly.)The next decision is what to invest in. Here, you’ll want to do three things: think long-term; focus on diversification and above all, keep your investment costs LOW. If you’re talking to a broker and he is urging individual stocks on you • and this is your first foray in investing • flee. Look at low-cost, high-quality mutual funds run by managers with long track records who have navigated through all kinds of market cycles. We’ve just been through one long cycle, characterized by a big bond bull market, coupled with a cyclical rally in stocks. What comes next? Experience and the ability to be nimble may help. Failing that, having diversified holdings and low costs will help. Government bonds (of the long-term variety) may be a very risky place to be, given interest rate policy trends. Do NOT trade your IRA account (this will wipe out some of your gains by ramping up costs.) Instead, just rebalance once a year, to keep everything in line. For instance, if you’ve decided you want 2/3 of your portfolio in stocks and stocks have a bonanza year, and you now have 89% of your assets in stocks, well, it’s time to sell some and reinvest the proceeds in other stuff.So, it’s a three-step process:find an organization you trust (an asset management firm; a low-fee self-directed brokerage; a robo-advisor)determine whether you want a plain vanilla or a Roth IRAdecide how you will invest the assets.Then go for it!!
What is the difference between a 401k and IRA?
Traditional 401(k) PlanMost companies offer their employees a 401(k) retirement plans. This helps both the employee and the employer get tax breaks from the government. Keep in mind that not all 401(k) plans are the same and you should consult with the human resource department at your company for more details.Advantages:Many employers offer matching contribution, up to a certain percentage, to your 401(k) plan. For example, if your employer matched 3% of contributions and you make $50,000 per year, you can get up to $1,500 per year for free from your employer if you contributed at least 3% of your paycheck to the 401(k) plan.Yearly tax breaks from the government. Money contributed to the 401(k) plan is tax deductible. For example, if you made $50,000 this year and contributed $5,000 to the 401(k) plan, you will only be taxed on $45,000 for the year. Since you are not taxed right now, when you reach retirement and withdraw money, you will be taxed in the future.Disadvantages:One of the biggest downsides of 401(k) plans is their limited investment options. Depending on the broker who manages your 401(k) plan, they might only offer 5-10 investment options. Sometimes it is hard to diversify investments in a 401(k) plan.Most 401(k) plans will have much higher fees when compared to other options available out in the market. Usually 401(k) plans will have fees close to 1%, which seem like a small number up front. When compounded over few decades, it can end up costing you thousands of dollars in savings.Roth 401(k) PlanThe advantages and disadvantages of a roth 401(k) plan is same as a traditional 401(k) plan. The only difference between the two accounts is the way they are taxed.Instead of getting tax breaks in the year you contribute to the roth 401(k), you will get tax breaks in the future. For example, if you made $50,000 this year and contributed $5,000 to the roth 401(k) plan, you will be taxed on $50,000 for the year. But when you reach retirement and withdraw this money, there will be no taxes to pay.Basically the big difference between a traditional 401(k) plan and roth 401(k) plan is getting tax benefits now vs getting tax benefits in the future.Solo 401(k) PlanSolo 401(k) plans are similar to other 401(k) plans, the main difference being they are directed toward self-employed investors.Advantages:Since this is a self-directed plan, there are plenty of investment options available for people unlike other employer-sponsored 401(k) plans.One of the biggest advantages for solo 401(k) plans is that you can contribute as much as $53,000 per year.Disadvantages:There are high fees associated with opening a solo 401(k) plan compared to other retirement plans and can be a little tricky to set one up.If you are not managing your own portfolio, it can cost even more to have a professional financial planner to manage your portfolio.It is only for people who are self-employed and earn an income through a business.Traditional IRAThis is an individual retirement account which can be opened by anyone who earned an income in the U.S. By investing through a traditional IRA, you can get a tax break on the money invested in the account. The maximum amount that can be contributed to an IRA account is $5,500 per year if you are under 50 years old and $6,500 if 50 years or older.Advantages:You have unlimited investing options when it comes to opening an IRA account. There are many companies out there (such as Vanguard) which offer traditional IRA accounts.The plans are controlled by the individual and you have a lot of flexibility managing it. For example, you can transfer trustees anytime you desire.Disadvantages:Since this is an individual retirement account, there are no matches from an employer like a 401(k) plan.There is a limit on tax deductions given to you depending on your income. If you participate in another retirement account through your employer, you might not be able to deduct all your traditional IRA contributions. To get more details, click here.Withdrawals must begin at 70 ½ and if an investor fails to withdraw the money, half of the money will be automatically confiscated by IRS.Roth IRASimilar to a traditional IRA, roth IRA accounts are an individual retirement account, which have very different tax benefits. There are income limitations to who can contribute to a roth IRA. Click here to find out the income limitations for the year 2015.Advantages:The biggest advantage of a roth IRA is that withdrawals will be 100% tax free as long as the account has been in existence for five years and you are at least 59 ½ years old.Unlike a traditional IRA, there are no required minimum distributions after age 70 ½. There are no issues with IRS taking away any of your hard earned money.Disadvantages:Just like in traditional IRA, there are no matches from an employer.There are also no tax deductions in the year money is contributed to the roth IRA. Investors have to wait till retirement to take advantage of these tax breaks.SEP IRAThese are individual retirement accounts which are adopted by business owners to provide retirement benefits for the business owner and their employees. These are much easier to open compared to solo 401(k) plans.Advantages:One of the biggest advantages of SEP IRA is the contribution limits. You can contribute up to 25% of your annual salary, with a max cap at $53,000.There are no income limits unlike other IRA accounts and since they are offered by many brokerage firms, they have lower fees.Disadvantages:There are no employee contributions to SEP IRA, thus they are most beneficial for single business owners without any employees.Employer must contribute for the benefits of everyone in the company; they cannot select individuals who will receive benefits.Why IRAs Are Much Better Retirement Option Than 401k Recently the 401k fees have dropped close to 0.5% on average, but it still is higher than if you were to invest in IRA through Vanguard.
