My accountant told me to fund a 10k SEP IRA by Sept. 15th

Customer Question

My accountant told me to fund a 10k SEP IRA by Sept. 15th for tax reasons. It looks like I might miss the deadline by a few days. What would be the ramifications of missing it?

Sure. If you don't pay your business SEP-IRA contribution, you will lose the tax deduction you claimed on your 2014 business return. The deadline to make the SEP-IRA is September 15th for calendar year corporations.

IRS will want the tax, interest and penalties, and your state will, too. Figure $3500 + to pay them. Add a few hundred more for your tax pro to respond to the bills, more if they insist on amending your returns.

Thank you

The cost is pretty high, especially since you lose out on the contribution for your retirement.

Positive feedback to rate my assistance is appreciated. I'm PDtax.
