Question

How do I calculate the maximum allowable Keogh deduction?

Answer

Enter 1 in the Compute maximum allowable contribution field to calculate the maximum allowable Keogh deduction. UltraTax CS automatically calculates the maximum deduction using the lesser of 20 percent (.25/1.25) of net earnings from self-employment or $53,000.

In lieu of calculating the maximum allowable contribution use the Total Keogh contributions field in Screen Keogh to enter known contributions to the plan. The same limitations apply for purposes of calculating the Keogh plan deduction.

To adjust the amount of self-employment earnings UltraTax CS uses to calculate the self-employment deduction, enter an adjustment in the Adjustment to earned income field in Screen Keogh. Negative entries are treated as subtractions.
