IRAs

Traditional IRA

Allows you to defer taxes on your earnings until they are withdrawn. Also, certain contributions are tax-deductible in the year they are made.

Eligibility

If you are under age 70½ for the entire tax year and have earned income, you are eligible to establish a traditional IRA.

Contribution

The Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001 has increased contribution limits to the following levels:

2016 - 2017: $5,500

Those 50 years old and over may contribute an additional $1,000 per year

Tax deductible

Based on whether you are an active participant in an employer-maintained retirement plan. You may be eligible for the maximum deduction, a partial deduction, or no deduction.

Taxable earnings

Tax deferred until withdrawal

Withdrawal without penalty

You can withdraw funds from your traditional IRA without incurring a 10% IRA premature-distribution penalty after you reach age 59 ½.
You can avoid the penalty before age 59 ½ if:

  • You become disabled
  • The distributions are part of substantially equal periodic payments
  • Certain unreimbursed medical expenses
  • For health care insurance if you've been receiving unemployment compensation for at least 12 weeks.
  • Qualified higher education expenses
  • For a first-time home purchase
     

Distribution

If over age 59½, include the taxable portion of the amount withdrawn as income. If under 59 ½ and do not meet one of the exceptions, you must also pay a 10% IRS penalty for premature distribution.

Required Distributions

At age 70½, you must begin to take minimum required withdrawals or severe penalties will be imposed.
