Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs)

Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) can allow a person to set up retirement accounts where contributions may be tax deductible and grow tax-deferred until retirement. Individuals are able to withdraw the money anytime (though if younger than 59 ½ a 10% penalty may apply), and once a person reaches 72, required minimum distributions will begin. Tax deductible IRAs are taxed as ordinary income when the money is distributed. Types of tax deductible retirement plans include: Employer Plans (401k(s), 403b(s) and 457 plans), Simplified Employee Pension (SEP) IRAs, SIMPLE IRAs and Rollover IRAs.

Roth IRAs are not tax deductible; however, the eligible distributions are tax-free.
