IRA Contributions Increased

There are two basic types of IRA accounts:

  • Traditional IRA – (contributions can be deductible and nondeductible)

  • Roth IRA* – (contributions are nondeductible)

Limits apply to both types of IRA.  For the tax year 2019, the contribution amount is as follows:

  • $6,000 for taxpayers under the age of 50

  • $7,000 for taxpayers over the age of 50 (a $1,000 catch-up contribution is allowed for taxpayers 50 and older)

*A personal savings plan that offers the taxpayer tax advantages to set aside money for his retirement.  Contributions are not deductible; however, qualified distributions are tax-free.  The earnings from a Roth IRA are also distributed tax-free.
