TRADITIONAL VS. ROTH IRA
IRAs (Individual Retirement Accounts) are some of the best tools for having your money grow toward retirement.
The question is: Traditional vs. Roth IRA-which one is right for you?
* Variables that determine deductibility include participation in certain employer retirement plans, income, and other factors.
** Distributions before age 59½ may have an additional 10% IRS early withdrawal penalty tax as well as income tax that may be assessed due to "early" or "premature" distribution, unless exceptions apply.
† Contributions are available at any time without income tax or penalty tax implications. Earnings are available without IRS penalty tax at age 59½.
†† Amount of permissible contributions may be limited based on filing status and income. In 2015, no Roth IRA contributions may be made by:
1) Married couples filing jointly and with a modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) of more than $193,000;
2) Single filers with a MAGI of more than $131,000.
