What About Profit-Sharing Plans?

BY JOHN J. JURCAGO

I was disappointed that the article “ IRAs and 401(k)s: How to Pick the Best Plan ” ( JofA , Mar.05) did not even mention defined contribution/profit-sharing plans. These allow an owner to pick an amount each year and have limits on contributions of up to 100% of compensation vs. the 25% limit in an SEP.
