Traditional IRA

Are you under age 70 & 1/2, with earned income? If so, your contributions to a Traditional IRA may be tax-deductible, depending on participation in an employer-sponsored retirement plan and income level. (Consult your tax advisor or reference Publication 590 at to see if you qualify.) 

Potential earnings are tax-deferred until you make withdrawals from the account. You can begin withdrawing funds from your IRA without the 10% IRS premature-distribution penalty any time after you reach age 59 & 1/2. You must begin to take your minimum required distributions when you reach age 70 & 1/2. Withdrawals of tax-deductible contributions and earnings are taxed at current income tax rates.

The current contribution limits are as follows:
  • Your taxable compensation that you must include in income for the year
  • $5,500

If you are 50 years of age or older in 2015, the most that can be contributed to your Traditional IRA is the smaller of the following amounts: Your taxable compensation that you must include in income for the year, or $6,500.

Roth IRA

Don't qualify for a Traditional IRA or looking for different tax advantages? Regardless of your age, you may be able to establish and make non-deductible contributions to a Roth IRA if you meet certain Adjusted Gross Income limits. (Consult your tax advisor or reference Publication 590 at to see if you qualify.)

Unlike a Traditional IRA, you do not report Roth IRA contributions on your tax return. However, this type of account offers a potentially greater tax advantage: when you begin withdrawing funds at retirement, earnings on the account are tax-free. In addition, contributions can be made to your Roth IRA after you reach age 70 & 1/2, and there are no mandatory withdrawals at any age.
