Contribution Amounts

SEP and SIMPLE-IRAs:
A contribution to a SEP or SIMPLE-IRA account is always coded with the current tax year, regardless of the instructions received with a payment. Pursuant to IRS reporting guidelines, employer contributions to SEP and SIMPLE-IRAs are reported in the calendar year in which the contribution is received, not the fiscal year to which it is attributable. This matter should be discussed with your tax advisor to review the options that are available to you.
