Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA’s)
An Individual Retirement Account is an excellent tool for retirement savings. Contributions could be tax deductible and will grow either tax-deferred or tax-free. Direct transfers and rollovers are acceptable as well as a 401K transfer from a former employer. Dividends are paid monthly.
Contributions are fully tax deductible if you are not an active participant in an employer retirement plan. If you have a retirement plan then phaseout rules would apply. Investments grow on a tax-deferred basis. Earnings are taxed only upon withdrawal.
Most people with earned income can establish and contribute to a Roth IRA, even after age 70 ½. Contributions are not tax deductible but contributions and earnings can be withdrawn tax-free at retirement. Unlike traditional IRA’s, you are not required to begin taking required minimum distributions after the age of 70 ½.
Education Savings Account (Formerly Education IRA):
The Coverdell ESA contribution limit is $2000 per beneficiary. While there is no tax deduction for amounts contributed to an ESA, earnings grow tax-free. These ESA funds can be used to pay qualified elementary school and secondary school expenses as well as those for higher education. The child (beneficiary) must be under age 18.
