Retirement Plans for Full-time Traders
Recorded Nov. 14, 2012
The best retirement plan for business traders is an Individual 401(k). It maximizes income tax savings vs. self-employment tax or payroll tax cost. Set it up before year-end in connection with your trading business. Roth IRAs provide an opportunity for permanent tax savings on trading income. Consider a Roth conversion before year-end. And there’s no need to worry — you can do a re-characterization if it doesn’t work out well.
