Overview

A Traditional IRA account may give you an immediate tax benefit because contributions are often tax deductible. Taxable distributions from an IRA can be taken without penalty starting at age 59½ and must be started by April 1st of the year following the year the account owner reaches 70½. Anyone with earned income is eligible to contribute to a Traditional IRA. However, there are Traditional IRA contribution limits.

Details

  • A retirement savings plan that allows an individual to contribute earnings until they are withdrawn.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RMD annually, or fails to withdraw the RMD, there is a 50% tax penalty that may be imposed by the IRS on the amount not withdrawn.
