Overview

A Roth IRA’s tax advantages differ from the Traditional IRA. If eligible for this account, your annual contribution limits are the same but are not tax deductible. However, since annual contributions have already been taxed, these contributions will never be taxed again and earnings can grow tax free. In addition, the contributed funds can be withdrawn any time you wish and there are no required minimum distributions after age 70½.

Details

Withdrawals of your contributions to a Roth IRA are tax-free anytime. However, withdrawals of earnings are only free from federal income tax, provided they meet the following requirements:

  • You are purchasing your first home ($10,000 lifetime maximum)
  • The Roth IRA has been in existence for at least five years
  • You are age 59½ or older
  • You become disabled or have passed away

Benefits

  • A retirement savings plan that allows an individual to contribute earnings until they are withdrawn.
  • Contributions are subject to annual limits depending on the age of the account owner and may or may not be deductible depending on the individual’s circumstances.
  • Earnings accumulate tax deferred until distributed to you at which time the earnings are subject to tax upon withdrawal.
  • A spouse may contribute to a separate account subject to the same limits.
  • Withdrawals made prior to age 59½ are subject to a 10% penalty unless certain special circumstances apply.
  • Distributions must begin by the account owner’s required beginning date (RBD), which is April 1 following the year that the account owner reaches age 70½.
  • Once the account owner reaches age 70½, he or she must withdraw at least a minimum amount called an annual Required Minimum Distribution (RMD).
  • If an account owner fails to withdraw the full amount of the RMD annually, or fails to withdraw the RMD, there is a 50% tax penalty that may be imposed by the IRS on the amount not withdrawn.
