What is the main difference between a sep ira and a Roth IRA?

A Sep IRA stands for Simplified Employee Pension IRA. Withdrawals from Sep IRA funds are taxed as if it was ordinary income. Taxes are paid at the beginning when a Roth IRA is opened. Withdrawals are not taxed so in the end a Roth IRA costs less than a Sep IRA. Both types of IRAs are great forms of investment.

Can you roll over your roth IRA into a sep IRA?

No you cannot. SEP-IRAs are contributory in nature meaning you can make contributions to them but you cannot rollover non-SEP-IRAs (or 401k accounts) into a SEP-IRA. If your SEP IRA is likely to become substantial or you have funds in a 401(k) from a previous employer and you are an one person (or one person with a spouse) business, you should look into individual 401(k)s. All of the major financial institution and self-directed trust companies offer them. They work like a corporate 401(k) but you have complete control. They may be better than a SEP since: 1. The contribution limits are higher 2. You can borrow against the 401(k) but not a SEP 3. You can have a Roth 401(k) but you cannot make Roth contributions to a SEP 4. You can buy life insurance or invest in a S corporationin a 401(k)

Can you have Both A Sep Ira and a Roth Ira?

Yes. Your ability to have a personal or spousal Roth IRA is a separate questions from whether you can have a SEP IRA. Anyone with earned income can contribute up to $4,000 (or $5,000 if your are 50 or over) in 2007 and $5,000 (or $6,000 in 2008) if they meet the income requirements. You must have earned income of under $99,000 for 2007 and $101,000 for 2008 for singles or $156,000 for 2007 and $159,000 for 2008 for married filing jointly. For a SEP IRA, you must have business income to contribute. You can contribute up to 25% of your business income with a limit of $45,000 in 2007 and $50,000 in 2008 (those 50 years or older may contribute $5,000 more). Thus, if you have business income, you can contribute to your ROTH IRA if you are eligible and a SEP IRA. If your SEP IRA is likely to become substantial or you have funds in a 401(k) from a previous employer and you are an one person (or one person with a spouse) business, you should look into individual 401(k)s.

Therefore, you can combine the SEP IRA into the Traditional IRA without any ramifications. When doing so, move the assets as a (nonreportable) trustee-to-trustee transfer.

Can you merge a SEP IRA with a traditional IRA?

echnically, the SEP IRA and the Traditional IRA are the same type of account. The only difference is that the SEP IRA is allowed to receive employer contributions. Therefore, you can combine the SEP IRA into the Traditional IRA without any ramifications. When doing so, move the assets as a (nonreportable) trustee-to-trustee transfer.Whether a conversion is good for you depends of your financial profile. In general, if you can afford to pay the taxes that would be due on the conversion and your tax bracket during retirement will be higher than your tax bracket now, then it makes sense to convert your assets to the Roth IRA. That may sound very general, but only someone familiar with your finances could make a specific recommendation.At a minimum, you can combine the SEP and Traditional IRA to reduce any administrative and trade related fees that may be charged to the account.


The IRA and Roth IRA?

An IRA, or Individual Retirement Account, is basically a savings account that provides tax breaks for retirement. Many people mistake the IRA for an investment, but it is just a way of keeping stocks, mutual funds, bonds, and other types of assets.IRAs are different from 401(k)s, in that the most common IRAs are ones that are opened by individuals, rather than companies. Other types are opened by individuals who are self-employed and owners of small businesses. Several types of IRAs are available, including the traditional IRA, SEP IRAs, Simple IRAs, and Roth IRAs.Not everyone is eligible for a given IRA because there are limitations. Each individual IRA has certain eligibility restrictions based upon different things like employment status or income. All IRAs have caps limiting the amount of money you can withdraw tax-free before your retirement.Roth IRAThe Roth IRA is a retirement account for individuals offering a future tax break- tax-free income for retirement. When following the Roth rules, distributions are tax-free. Contributions can be withdrawn tax-free at any time.There are no mandatory withdrawals under a Roth IRA. No income taxes must be paid by heirs on Roth IRAs that are inherited. They are, however, obligated to take distributions over the course of their lifetimes.Roth IRA vs. Traditional IRAThe chief difference between the two is that when paying income tax on the money contributed to the plans, you pay your taxes on the back end with a traditional IRA but there are often no taxes on the back end. The Roth IRA is precisely the opposite. Taxes are paid on the front end, but none on the back end.SEP IRAThe SEP IRA is designed specifically with self-employed individuals and small business owners in mind. Partnerships, S and C corporations, and sole proprietorships also qualify.The contribution limit is currently $50,000 and contributions are normally fully tax deductible and earnings from investments in a SEP IRA are allowed to grow tax deferred.
