Santo Gold Posted April 30, 2020 Report Share Posted April 30, 2020 I wanted to confirm that I researched this correctly. in 401k plans, self-employed individuals can make employee contributions up to the due date of their personal tax return, including extensions, which could mean a 2019 calendar year 401k contribution can be deposited as late as 10/15/20. But if the same employee/employer has a SIMPLE IRA, the employee contribution deadline is 30 days after PYE? From the IRS website is below. So my conclusion is that different timing deadlines apply whether a SIMPLE or not? Also, does the coronavirus relief change anything for SIMPLE IRA employee contributions? Thank you When must I deposit the salary reduction contributions? You must deposit employees’ salary reduction contributions to their SIMPLE IRAs within 30 days after the end of the month in which the amounts would otherwise have been payable to the employees in cash, according to IRS rules (IRC section 408(p)(5)(A)(i)). For self-employed persons with no common-law employees, the latest date for depositing salary reduction contributions for a calendar year is 30 days after the end of the year, or January 30th. The Department of Labor rule for deposit of the salary reduction contributions may be stricter. They do have a 7 business day safe harbor rule.
