Looking for a tax-deferred retirement plan?

A Traditional IRA may be for you. With a Traditional IRA, interest earned as income is not taxable until the funds are withdrawn. Usually this occurs after retirement when the taxpayer is in a lower tax bracket.

  • Contributions to a traditional IRA can be tax deductible in the year they are made depending on the IRA, holder’s income level and participation in Employer Sponsored retirement plans.
  • Contributions can be made until your tax deadline, generally April 15, for a prior year contribution.
  • Contributions can be the lesser of the annual contribution limit or 100% of the earned income per participant and are allowed until the year in which the participant reaches the age of 70½.

  • Generally, Traditional IRA account holders are taxed on contributions plus all earnings the year the distributions are taken.
  • The Traditional IRA account holder is required to begin taking distributions in the year in which they reach age 70½. Individuals can begin to withdraw without IRS penalty at age 59½.
  • Individuals who reach age 50 or older before the end of the taxable year may be eligible to contribute an additional $1,000 to a Traditional IRA as a “catch-up” contribution.
