The personal holding company tax is often thought to be a remnant of days long gone but it can still come back to haunt business owners.  This additional tax can be assessed against a closely held company if it receives excess investment income. However, with some careful tax planning, you may be able to avoid any dire tax consequences.

A Simplified Employee Pension Individual Retirement Arrangement (SEP IRA) has traditionally been the most popular retirement plan for the self-employed and small business owner. A SEP IRA is a pure profit sharing plan that allows the employer to make up to a 25% (20% in the case of a sole proprietorship of single member LLC) profit sharing contribution to all eligible employees up to a maximum of $53,000 for 2015 and 2016. While a SEP IRA does offer high annual contribution limitations, there is another retirement plan that offers better retirement options for the self-employed or small business with no employees – the Solo 401(k) plan, also know as the individual 401(k) or self-employed 401(k) plan.

This option has become increasingly valuable since the total tax burden on owners of unincorporated, flow-through business entities increased in 2013.
