For the past several years, there has been
pending before Congress legislation which
would permit self-employed persons to defer
until later years tax liability upon a portion
of their current income paid into a restricted
retirement fund. Before Congress, at the
present time, there is legislation known as
the Jenkins-Keogh Bill (H.R. 9 and 10).
This bill allows a self-employed person to
deduct from gross income each year a limit-
ed amount of self-employment income con-
tributed by him to a restricted retirement
fund or paid in as premiums to purchase an
insurance policy with retirement features.
He can deduct annually up to $5,000 or
101/c of self-employment income, whichever
is less, but not more than a total of $100,000
during his lifetime. There is a five-year
carry-over of unused deductions, subject to
certain limitations.
An individual, who has reached the age
of 50 before the effective date, is allowed
to deduct an additional amount to help him
build up an adequate interest in the fund
or obtain more than a token annuity. In
his case, the normal deduction limit is in-
creased by 1/10 for each year of age over
50, and not over 70.
The contributions plus accumulations be-
come taxable when distributed and may be
withdrawn at any time. However, where
withdrawals take place before the age of
65, the tax is 10C greater than otherwise,
but the payment is treated as having been
received pro rata during the taxable year
and the four preceding years. Lump sum
payments after 65 are given special treat-
Every self-employed lawyer should in-
form himself fully about the Jenkins-Keogh
Bill. The principle of this legislation has
already been endorsed by the American Bar
Association and the Board of Governors of
the Washington State Bar Association.
The temporary or advance pamphlets of
the 1957 Session Laws are now obtainable
from the Secretary of State for $1.00 per
set, and the botnd volumes from Mark H.
Wight, State Law Librarian, Temple of
Justice, Olympia, for $4.00 each (no tax).
The last bound session laws were not re-
ceived from the bindery until the middle of
November and, while it is hoped the new
laws will come earlier this year, the bar is
assured that orders will be filled as fast as
the books are made aailable.
