If I have passive income from farming, can I contribute this

This answer was rated:

If I have passive income from farming, can I contribute this farm income to a SEP IRA?

MyVirtualCPA :

Thanks for asking your question! I'm sorry to hear about your tax issue and I'm going to try my best to help you understand or resolve it.

MyVirtualCPA :

How are you today?

MyVirtualCPA :

Unfortunately, passive income is not eligible to be contributed to SEP IRA - only earned income such as wages or self employment income is.

MyVirtualCPA :

Passive income such as passive farming, real estate rental, etc are not eligible to be contributed to a retirement plan

MyVirtualCPA :

Do you have any further questions about this regard?

MyVirtualCPA :

If you have no further questions, please rate my response as "excellent" so that I may receive credit for assisting you today.

MyVirtualCPA :

I apologize if the news was not favorable in your situation, keep in mind I am penalized personally for negative ratings, so anything less than "okay" would punish me for my honesty
