Roth Solo 401k Contributions | Designated Roth Contributions |

A Roth Solo 401k contribution falls under the elective deferral category (employee contribution) and must meet the following guidelines:

  • It is irrevocable and included in the solo 401k participant’s gross income.
  • Deposited in a Roth designated account under the solo 401k.
  • Contributions are held in a separate bank/brokerage account from other solo 401k funds (e.g., pretax).
