SEP IRA - contribution classification

Guest br6k

Recommended Posts

What happens if (intended) employer contribution to SEP IRA account was listed by broker as "Regular Contribution Tax Year 14" (appears to be a mistake on their part)? The account is set up for a sole proprietorship. Previous years contributions were correctly listed as "SEP Employer Contribution".

Can I simply indicate this amount as employer contribution on 2014 tax return? Or should I get the brokerage to reclassify it correctly?

I would have them make the adjustment. Otherwise, the client may receive a 5498 with incorrect information, which could create complications with the IRS
