SBA Poll: To Fund or Not to Fund

The Question:
Will you fund a contribution to a qualified retirement plan that’s deductible on you 2012 tax return?

24% - I have funded an IRA for the 2012 tax year

18% - I have, or will contribute to, a 401K, Simple Plan, SEP, etc.

15% - I have established a plan, but can’t fund it for the 2012 tax year

42% - I don’t have a qualified plan, nor can I fund one right now

My Comments:
In past years we’ve polled small business owners about their retirement funding ability, as we did again last week with this question: “Will you fund a contribution to a qualified retirement plan that’s deductible on your 2012 tax return?” As you can see, unfortunately more than half of small business owners are not able to fund a retirement plan outside of the business.

In next week’s Feature Article, I’m going to have more to say about this and reveal some of the ways the government encourages and actually contributes to retirement planning. Stay tuned.
