One that I have seen grow and maintain a great reputation in the Texas real estate community was Longhorn. Knowing their reputation in the market, and after speaking with Michael, it made all the sense in the world to come to Longhorn with my strengths & skills. Hopefully, I will be here for many more years to come!”

Miami, FL (PRWEB) March 18, 2013

IRA Financial Group, the leading provider of the self-directed solo 401(k) Plans has seen an increase number of small business owners having the opportunity to establish a Solo 401K Plan because of the emerging reliance on independent contractors. Due to the increased reliance on independent contractors to avoid hitting the 50-employee threshold, which would require them to pay for employees health insurance, starting next year, a number of small businesses are now able to adopt a Solo 401K plan because they have eliminated their full-time employees. Not all small business owners have been able to turn all their full-time employees to independent contractors, but a number of businesses have tried in order to not be subject to the ObamaCare costs, stated Maria Ritsi, a paralegal with the IRA Financial Group.

We have strongly advised clients to be extremely conservative in re-classifying past employees as independent contractors as the Internal Revenue Service have spending significant resources in this area, stated Mr. Bergman. However, as business condition continue to be tough, companies are looking to remain competitive, especially with the increased costs assisted with ObamaCare, stated Ms Ritsi.
