If you are self-employed, you can enter your retirement contributions using these steps:

  1. Click FEDERAL (Business in the Home & Business version)  > Continue > I'll choose what I work on
  2. On the screen, Let's gather your business info, scroll down to the Less Common Business Situations
  3. Click on the Start/Update box next to Self-Employed Retirement. 
  4. On the Self-Employed Retirement Plans screen, click Yes.
  5. You will first be asked if you contributed to Individual and Roth 401(k) Plans.  Click Continue if this doesn't apply.
  6. Next you will be asked about any Keogh, SEP and SIMPLE Contributions.

Thank you for the detailed instructions.

 

I am using the Self employed Turbo Tax version and do not see any of these options on screen(after I get to Federal Link)

Extremely difficult to find where to place SEP IRA Contributions.

 

When I printed the FORMS that the Turbo Tax Program generated it had NUMEROUS WORD ERRORS THE ON HEADINGS AND OTHER PLACES. 

Feel the program was made in a NON-ENGLISH SPEAKING COUNTRY

 

JUST BLOODY BAD

If I enter any number for SEP IRA contribution, Turbo Tax shows a HIGHER tax liability. How can that happen??

There is a not-obvious relationship between the SEP-IRA deduction (line 15 of Schedule 1 (1040)), the self-employed health insurance deduction (line 16 on the same form), and any premium tax credit. Sometimes, increasing one appears to increase your tax for seemingly unknown reasons.

 

Look at your 1040 and Schedule 1, 2, and 3 to see what changes when you add the SEP-IRA contribution. I bet something else is changing. Let us know what.

 

If you are using the Online product, you can see your 1040 and these three schedules at any time by clicking on Tax Tools on the left, then Tools underneath that, then View Tax Summary in the center, then Preview my 1040 back on the left.

 

If you are using the CD/download software, you can see all your forms at any time by clicking on Forms on the upper right.
