The sum of both contributions can be a maximum of $55,000 per year (for 2018) or $61,000 for persons over age 50. The calculation of how much can be contributed to a Solo 401(k) plan is based on whether your business is taxed as a corporation and you receive a W-2 or if you are taxed as an LLC, partnership, or sole proprietorship.
Internal Revenue Code Section 72(p) allows a Solo 401(k) plan participant to take a loan from his or her plan, so as long as it is permitted pursuant to the business’s 401(k) plan documents. A loan is permitted at any time using the accumulated balance of the Solo 401(k) as collateral for the loan. Participants can borrow up to either $50,000 or 50% of their account value, whichever is less.
The primary advantage of using a Self-Directed Roth IRA to make investments is that all income and gains grow tax free and will not be subject to tax upon withdrawal or distribution. This is because unlike traditional IRAs, you are generally not subject to any tax upon taking Roth IRA distributions once you reach the age of 59 1/2. In general, the longer the time period, the more advantageous the Roth IRA is because of the powerful advantages of compounding.
