Focus of the Month

Flexibility Leads to Substantial Retirement Savings

Ron and his wife, Sharon, both in their forties, discovered that a bit of flexibility from his employer would make it possible for them to increase retirement savings to over $100,000 per year. At the same time, they reduced their taxable income by making maximum 401K contributions of $17,500 each (2014).

As a successful salesman/consultant, Ron earns substantial commission income. Part of Ron's plan, in addition to maxing out his 401k at $17,500 in 2014 through his employer’s plan ($18,000 for 2015) is to have his employer divert enough of his commission income to an LLC he and Sharon created for the purpose of establishing 1099 income and increasing his retirement savings options. Sharon has no other income other than what is provided by their LLC.
