Individual Retirement Account (IRA)
With a traditional IRA, eligible contributions are made tax-free and are only taxed when withdrawn during retirement, ideally when you're in a lower tax bracket. There is no age restriction for Traditional IRAs, so anyone at any age can contribute if they are still working. Traditional IRAs are also subject to Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) starting at age 72. Contributions to a traditional IRA may be tax deductible in the contribution year, with current income tax due at withdrawal. Withdrawals prior to age 59 ½ may result in a 10% IRS penalty tax in addition to current income tax.Contact Us
With a Roth IRA, contributions are taxed. However, qualified distributions are tax-free, regardless of your tax bracket or income level. Roth IRAs are also subject to income limits, restricting how much you can contribute depending on your earnings and filing status. Additionally, Roth IRAs are not subject to RMDs, allowing funds to grow throughout your lifetime, effectively fund education, and even transfer to beneficiaries.
A Roth IRA offers tax deferral on any earnings in the account. Qualified withdrawals of earnings from the account are tax-free. Withdrawals of earnings prior to age 59 ½ or prior to the account being opened for 5 years, whichever is later, may result in a 10% IRS penalty tax. Limitations and restrictions may apply.Let's Talk!
