Individual 401(k)

Tax law provides an opportunity for owner-only businesses and self-employed individuals to save more for retirement when compared to other retirement plan alternatives. Contributions, in the form of salary deferrals and profit sharing contributions, can total as much as $50,000 in 2012 ($55,500 if age 50 or older).

In addition to these higher contribution limits, other advantages include the ability to take a loan from the plan and the limited administration required with an individual 401(k) plan.
