A SIMPLE plan is a tax-favored retirement plan that certain small employers (including self-employed individuals) can set up for the benefit of their employees. Can i amend my taxes online See chapter 3 of Publication 560 for information on the requirements employers must satisfy to set up a SIMPLE plan. Can i amend my taxes online A SIMPLE plan is a written agreement (salary reduction agreement) between you and your employer that allows you, if you are an eligible employee (including a self-employed individual), to choose to: Reduce your compensation (salary) by a certain percentage each pay period, and Have your employer contribute the salary reductions to a SIMPLE IRA on your behalf. Can i amend my taxes online These contributions are called salary reduction contributions. Can i amend my taxes online All contributions under a SIMPLE IRA plan must be made to SIMPLE IRAs, not to any other type of IRA. Can i amend my taxes online The SIMPLE IRA can be an individual retirement account or an individual retirement annuity, described in chapter 1. Can i amend my taxes online Contributions are made on behalf of eligible employees. Can i amend my taxes online (See Eligible Employees below. Can i amend my taxes online ) Contributions are also subject to various limits. Can i amend my taxes online (See How Much Can Be Contributed on Your Behalf , later. Can i amend my taxes online ) In addition to salary reduction contributions, your employer must make either matching contributions or nonelective contributions. Can i amend my taxes online See How Are Contributions Made , later. Can i amend my taxes online You may be able to claim a credit for contributions to your SIMPLE plan. Can i amend my taxes online For more information, see chapter 4. Can i amend my taxes online Eligible Employees You must be allowed to participate in your employer's SIMPLE plan if you: Received at least $5,000 in compensation from your employer during any 2 years prior to the current year, and Are reasonably expected to receive at least $5,000 in compensation during the calendar year for which contributions are made. Can i amend my taxes online Self-employed individual. Can i amend my taxes online   For SIMPLE plan purposes, the term employee includes a self-employed individual who received earned income. Can i amend my taxes online Excludable employees. Can i amend my taxes online   Your employer can exclude the following employees from participating in the SIMPLE plan. Can i amend my taxes online Employees whose retirement benefits are covered by a collective bargaining agreement (union contract). Can i amend my taxes online Employees who are nonresident aliens and received no earned income from sources within the United States. Can i amend my taxes online Employees who would not have been eligible employees if an acquisition, disposition, or similar transaction had not occurred during the year. Can i amend my taxes online Compensation. Can i amend my taxes online   For purposes of the SIMPLE plan rules, your compensation for a year generally includes the following amounts. Can i amend my taxes online Wages, tips, and other pay from your employer that is subject to income tax withholding. Can i amend my taxes online Deferred amounts elected under any 401(k) plans, 403(b) plans, government (section 457) plans, SEP plans, and SIMPLE plans. Can i amend my taxes online Self-employed individual compensation. Can i amend my taxes online   For purposes of the SIMPLE plan rules, if you are self-employed, your compensation for a year is your net earnings from self-employment (Schedule SE (Form 1040), Section A, line 4, or Section B, line 6) before subtracting any contributions made to a SIMPLE IRA on your behalf. Can i amend my taxes online   For these purposes, net earnings from self-employment include services performed while claiming exemption from self-employment tax as a member of a group conscientiously opposed to social security benefits. Can i amend my taxes online How Are Contributions Made? Contributions under a salary reduction agreement are called salary reduction contributions. Can i amend my taxes online They are made on your behalf by your employer. Can i amend my taxes online Your employer must also make either matching contributions or nonelective contributions. Can i amend my taxes online Salary reduction contributions. Can i amend my taxes online   During the 60-day period before the beginning of any year, and during the 60-day period before you are eligible, you can choose salary reduction contributions expressed either as a percentage of compensation, or as a specific dollar amount (if your employer offers this choice). Can i amend my taxes online You can choose to cancel the election at any time during the year. Can i amend my taxes online   Salary reduction contributions are also referred to as “elective deferrals. Can i amend my taxes online ”   Your employer cannot place restrictions on the contributions amount (such as by limiting the contributions percentage), except to comply with the salary reduction contributions limit, discussed under How Much Can Be Contributed on Your Behalf, later. Can i amend my taxes online Matching contributions. Can i amend my taxes online   Unless your employer chooses to make nonelective contributions, your employer must make contributions equal to the salary reduction contributions you choose (elect), but only up to certain limits. Can i amend my taxes online See How Much Can Be Contributed on Your Behalf below. Can i amend my taxes online These contributions are in addition to the salary reduction contributions and must be made to the SIMPLE IRAs of all eligible employees (defined earlier) who chose salary reductions. Can i amend my taxes online These contributions are referred to as matching contributions. Can i amend my taxes online   Matching contributions on behalf of a self-employed individual are not treated as salary reduction contributions. Can i amend my taxes online Nonelective contributions. Can i amend my taxes online   Instead of making matching contributions, your employer may be able to choose to make nonelective contributions on behalf of all eligible employees. Can i amend my taxes online These nonelective contributions must be made on behalf of each eligible employee who has at least $5,000 of compensation from your employer, whether or not the employee chose salary reductions. Can i amend my taxes online   One of the requirements your employer must satisfy is notifying the employees that the election was made. Can i amend my taxes online For other requirements that your employer must satisfy, see chapter 3 of Publication 560. Can i amend my taxes online How Much Can Be Contributed on Your Behalf? The limits on contributions to a SIMPLE IRA vary with the type of contribution that is made. Can i amend my taxes online Salary reduction contributions limit. Can i amend my taxes online   Salary reduction contributions (employee-chosen contributions or elective deferrals) that your employer can make on your behalf under a SIMPLE plan are limited to $12,000 for 2013. Can i amend my taxes online The limitation remains at $12,000 for 2014. Can i amend my taxes online If you are a participant in any other employer plans during 2013 and you have elective salary reductions or deferred compensation under those plans, the salary reduction contributions under the SIMPLE plan also are included in the annual limit of $17,500 for 2013 on exclusions of salary reductions and other elective deferrals. Can i amend my taxes online You, not your employer, are responsible for monitoring compliance with these limits. Can i amend my taxes online Additional elective deferrals can be contributed to your SIMPLE plan if: You reached age 50 by the end of 2013, and No other elective deferrals can be made for you to the plan for the year because of limits or restrictions, such as the regular annual limit. Can i amend my taxes online The most that can be contributed in additional elective deferrals to your SIMPLE plan is the lesser of the following two amounts. Can i amend my taxes online $2,500 for 2013, or Your compensation for the year reduced by your other elective deferrals for the year. Can i amend my taxes online The additional deferrals are not subject to any other contribution limit and are not taken into account in applying other contribution limits. Can i amend my taxes online The additional deferrals are not subject to the nondiscrimination rules as long as all eligible participants are allowed to make them. Can i amend my taxes online Matching employer contributions limit. Can i amend my taxes online   Generally, your employer must make matching contributions to your SIMPLE IRA in an amount equal to your salary reduction contributions. Can i amend my taxes online These matching contributions cannot be more than 3% of your compensation for the calendar year. Can i amend my taxes online See Matching contributions less than 3% below. Can i amend my taxes online Example 1. Can i amend my taxes online In 2013, Joshua was a participant in his employer's SIMPLE plan. Can i amend my taxes online His compensation, before SIMPLE plan contributions, was $41,600 ($800 per week). Can i amend my taxes online Instead of taking it all in cash, Joshua elected to have 12. Can i amend my taxes online 5% of his weekly pay ($100) contributed to his SIMPLE IRA. Can i amend my taxes online For the full year, Joshua's salary reduction contributions were $5,200, which is less than the $12,000 limit on these contributions. Can i amend my taxes online Under the plan, Joshua's employer was required to make matching contributions to Joshua's SIMPLE IRA. Can i amend my taxes online Because his employer's matching contributions must equal Joshua's salary reductions, but cannot be more than 3% of his compensation (before salary reductions) for the year, his employer's matching contribution was limited to $1,248 (3% of $41,600). Can i amend my taxes online Example 2. Can i amend my taxes online Assume the same facts as in Example 1 , except that Joshua's compensation for the year was $408,163 and he chose to have 2. Can i amend my taxes online 94% of his weekly pay contributed to his SIMPLE IRA. Can i amend my taxes online In this example, Joshua's salary reduction contributions for the year (2. Can i amend my taxes online 94% × $408,163) were equal to the 2013 limit for salary reduction contributions ($12,000). Can i amend my taxes online Because 3% of Joshua's compensation ($12,245) is more than the amount his employer was required to match ($12,000), his employer's matching contributions were limited to $12,000. Can i amend my taxes online In this example, total contributions made on Joshua's behalf for the year were $24,000 ($12,000 (Joshua's contributions) + $12,000 (matching contributions)), the maximum contributions permitted under a SIMPLE IRA for 2013. Can i amend my taxes online Matching contributions less than 3%. Can i amend my taxes online   Your employer can reduce the 3% limit on matching contributions for a calendar year, but only if: The limit is not reduced below 1%, The limit is not reduced for more than 2 years out of the 5-year period that ends with (and includes) the year for which the election is effective, and Employees are notified of the reduced limit within a reasonable period of time before the 60-day election period during which they can enter into salary reduction agreements. Can i amend my taxes online   For purposes of applying the rule in item (2) in determining whether the limit was reduced below 3% for the year, any year before the first year in which your employer (or a former employer) maintains a SIMPLE IRA plan will be treated as a year for which the limit was 3%. Can i amend my taxes online If your employer chooses to make nonelective contributions for a year, that year also will be treated as a year for which the limit was 3%. Can i amend my taxes online Nonelective employer contributions limit. Can i amend my taxes online   If your employer chooses to make nonelective contributions, instead of matching contributions, to each eligible employee's SIMPLE IRA, contributions must be 2% of your compensation for the entire year. Can i amend my taxes online For 2013, only $255,000 of your compensation can be taken into account to figure the contribution limit. Can i amend my taxes online   Your employer can substitute the 2% nonelective contribution for the matching contribution for a year if both of the following requirements are met. Can i amend my taxes online Eligible employees are notified that a 2% nonelective contribution will be made instead of a matching contribution. Can i amend my taxes online This notice is provided within a reasonable period during which employees can enter into salary reduction agreements. Can i amend my taxes online Example 3. Can i amend my taxes online Assume the same facts as in Example 2 , except that Joshua's employer chose to make nonelective contributions instead of matching contributions. Can i amend my taxes online Because his employer's nonelective contributions are limited to 2% of up to $255,000 of Joshua's compensation, his employer's contribution to Joshua's SIMPLE IRA was limited to $5,100. Can i amend my taxes online In this example, total contributions made on Joshua's behalf for the year were $17,100 (Joshua's salary reductions of $12,000 plus his employer's contribution of $5,100). Can i amend my taxes online Traditional IRA mistakenly moved to SIMPLE IRA. Can i amend my taxes online   If you mistakenly roll over or transfer an amount from a traditional IRA to a SIMPLE IRA, you can later recharacterize the amount as a contribution to another traditional IRA. Can i amend my taxes online For more information, see Recharacterizations in chapter 1. Can i amend my taxes online Recharacterizing employer contributions. Can i amend my taxes online   You cannot recharacterize employer contributions (including elective deferrals) under a SEP or SIMPLE plan as contributions to another IRA. Can i amend my taxes online SEPs are discussed in chapter 2 of Publication 560. Can i amend my taxes online SIMPLE plans are discussed in this chapter. Can i amend my taxes online Converting from a SIMPLE IRA. Can i amend my taxes online   Generally, you can convert an amount in your SIMPLE IRA to a Roth IRA under the same rules explained in chapter 1 under Converting From Any Traditional IRA Into a Roth IRA . Can i amend my taxes online    However, you cannot convert any amount distributed from the SIMPLE IRA during the 2-year period beginning on the date you first participated in any SIMPLE IRA plan maintained by your employer. Can i amend my taxes online When Can You Withdraw or Use Assets? Generally, the same distribution (withdrawal) rules that apply to traditional IRAs apply to SIMPLE IRAs. Can i amend my taxes online These rules are discussed in chapter 1. Can i amend my taxes online Your employer cannot restrict you from taking distributions from a SIMPLE IRA. Can i amend my taxes online Are Distributions Taxable? Generally, distributions from a SIMPLE IRA are fully taxable as ordinary income. Can i amend my taxes online If the distribution is an early distribution (discussed in chapter 1), it may be subject to the additional tax on early distributions. Can i amend my taxes online See Additional Tax on Early Distributions, later. Can i amend my taxes online Rollovers and Transfers Exception Generally, rollovers and trustee-to-trustee transfers are not taxable distributions. Can i amend my taxes online Two-year rule. Can i amend my taxes online   To qualify as a tax-free rollover (or a tax-free trustee-to-trustee transfer), a rollover distribution (or a transfer) made from a SIMPLE IRA during the 2-year period beginning on the date on which you first participated in your employer's SIMPLE plan must be contributed (or transferred) to another SIMPLE IRA. Can i amend my taxes online The 2-year period begins on the first day on which contributions made by your employer are deposited in your SIMPLE IRA. Can i amend my taxes online   After the 2-year period, amounts in a SIMPLE IRA can be rolled over or transferred tax free to an IRA other than a SIMPLE IRA, or to a qualified plan, a tax-sheltered annuity plan (section 403(b) plan), or deferred compensation plan of a state or local government (section 457 plan). Can i amend my taxes online Additional Tax on Early Distributions The additional tax on early distributions (discussed in chapter 1) applies to SIMPLE IRAs. Can i amend my taxes online If a distribution is an early distribution and occurs during the 2-year period following the date on which you first participated in your employer's SIMPLE plan, the additional tax on early distributions is increased from 10% to 25%. Can i amend my taxes online If a rollover distribution (or transfer) from a SIMPLE IRA does not satisfy the 2-year rule, and is otherwise an early distribution, the additional tax imposed because of the early distribution is increased from 10% to 25% of the amount distributed.

Can i amend my taxes online Additionally, this publication is not updated on an annual basis and may not reflect recent developments in bankruptcy or tax law. Can i amend my taxes online If you need more guidance on the bankruptcy or tax laws applicable to your case, you should seek professional advice. Can i amend my taxes online This publication explains the basic federal income tax aspects of bankruptcy. Can i amend my taxes online A fundamental goal of the bankruptcy laws enacted by Congress is to give an honest debtor a financial “fresh start”. Can i amend my taxes online This is accomplished through the bankruptcy discharge, which is a permanent injunction (court ordered prohibition) against the collection of certain debts as a personal liability of the debtor. Can i amend my taxes online Bankruptcy proceedings begin with the filing of either a voluntary petition in the United States Bankruptcy Court, or in certain cases an involuntary petition filed by creditors. Can i amend my taxes online This filing creates the bankruptcy estate. Can i amend my taxes online The bankruptcy estate generally consists of all of the assets the individual or entity owns on the date the bankruptcy petition was filed. Can i amend my taxes online The bankruptcy estate is treated as a separate taxable entity for individuals filing bankruptcy petitions under chapter 7 or 11 of the Bankruptcy Code, discussed later. Can i amend my taxes online The tax obligations of taxable bankruptcy estates are discussed later under Individuals in Chapter 7 or 11.
