If I would change my status from schedule C to full-time employee, what should I do with the self-employed solo 401k account without any tax issues?
If you were no longer self-employed, you would need to close the solo 401k plan. Once the business owner is no longer self-employed, he has the following options:
- Transfer the Solo 401k to an IRA which is considered a trustee to trustee non-taxable direct rollover. If the solo 401k plan holds alternative investments such as real estate, and cryptocurrency for example, those investments can be moved over in-kin to the IRA.
- Transfer the solo 401k to a full-time employer 401k provider which most likely will not allow for alternative investments, just traditional investments such as mutual funds an equities.
