As a self employed real estate investor, are you wondering

how you are going to defer taxes on your income this year? Your IRA allows you to put in up to $6,500 per year depending on age, but that's not much help.And it's going to be a long slow road to build up that nest egg at that rate. If you're working for someone else, they may have a 401(k) plan you can participate in, but if you make the jump to self employment, then what ?

Enter the 401(k) for the self employed: A largely misunderstood and frequently overlooked retirement vehicle, the 401(k) provides huge tax benefits and investing opportunities.

You will learn:

    oWhat a Solo (individual) 401(k) plan is, who can use one and who can’t!

    oThe components of the plans and contribution limits:up to $52,000 per year

    oHuge contributions for full-time self-employed

    oFull-time in a job and working in your real estate business at the same time – when you can use a plan

    oExamples of what you can do with them and with a Self Directed IRA

This looks pretty interesting. Much higher max than traditional or Roth IRA. I'd qualify as being self employed without employees it looks like.

Any catches?
