Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) are a popular way to save for retirement, and they offer tax advantages as well.

Traditional IRA

A Traditional IRA is a way to save for retirement that gives you tax advantages. Contributions you make to a Traditional IRA may be fully or partially deductible, depending on your circumstances. Generally, amounts in your Traditional IRA (including earnings and gains) are not taxed until distributed.

Roth IRA

A Roth IRA is similar to a Traditional IRA, except that:

  • You cannot deduct contributions to a Roth IRA.
  • If you satisfy the requirements, qualified distributions are tax-free.
  • You can make contributions to your Roth IRA after you reach age 70 1/2.
  • You can leave amounts in your Roth IRA as long as you live.

The Roth IRA offers tax deferral on any earnings in the account. Withdrawals from the account may be tax free, as long as they are considered qualified. Limitations and restrictions may apply. Withdrawals prior to age 59 may result in a 10% IRS penalty tax. Future tax laws can change at any time and may impact the benefits of Roth IRAs. Their tax treatment may change.

Consult a tax advisor for tax deductibility. For more information on IRAs, contact Clear Mountain Investments or visit IRS.Gov.
