My client was running out of options. With the ‘Texas Two-Step’ he opened a SEP for 2018 and then right after opened a Defined Benefit plan for 2019 – like a one-two punch.

For your high-income clients who filed for an extension & have limited retirement plan options this year, recommend the ‘Texas Two-Step’:

Did you know you can help some of your clients lower taxes for both 2018 & 2019 with the Texas Two-Step? For your self-employed or small business clients, who filed for a tax extension, it’s a great way to increase tax savings. You’ll look like an expert, with this proven tax strategy. Plus, it will provide more assets for you to manage!

Number 1

First, Have Your Client Open a SEP

Simplified Employee Pension IRA (SEP IRA) is a good option for self-employed clients because it allows them to contribute up to 25% of their annual earnings. As you may know, contributions are tax-deductible and SEPs also offer some funding flexibility.

Don’t Wait, Have Your Client Open a Defined Benefit Plan

Unlike other self-employed retirement plans, Defined Benefit and Cash Balance plans allow much larger contributions, letting clients turbocharge their retirements. These high-contribution plans can potentially allow the highest tax-deductible contributions, averaging more than $100,000 each year.
