Traditional IRAs offer the following benefits.
- Independence – Individuals may open and fund IRAs without any employer participation
- Immediate tax advantages – Earnings remain tax-deferred until distributed
- Possible tax deductions – Eligible individuals can make deductible contributions
- Accessibility – Individuals may distribute IRA assets at any time
- Flexibility – No annual contribution requirement
To make a regular Traditional IRA contribution, the IRA owner must have eligible compensation (generally earned income) equal to or greater than the Traditional IRA contribution amount.
An IRA owner may contribute to all her Traditional and Roth IRAs up to the lesser of
- $6,000 or 100 percent of earned income, or
- $1,000 catch-up for individuals age 50+.
IRA owners age 50 or older by the end of the tax year may increase their IRA contributions to help "catch up" on their retirement savings, for a total maximum IRA contribution of $7,000 or the amount of your taxable compensation for 2020 if less. This limit can be split between a Traditional IRA and a Roth IRA but the combined limit is $7,000.
- The couple must be married and file a joint federal income tax return.
- One spouse must have compensation or earned income equal to or greater than the IRA contribution.
- The non-compensated spouse must establish an IRA.
A simplified employee pension (SEP) plan is a retirement plan that allows employers to contribute to employees’ Traditional IRAs. SEP plan contributions are subject to different contribution limits than Traditional IRA contributions. Once an employer makes a SEP plan contribution to an IRA, all the general Traditional IRA rules and regulations apply. SEP plan contributions do not affect the individual's ability to make Traditional IRA contributions. The following characteristics apply to SEP plan contributions.
- The maximum SEP plan contribution is the lesser of 25 percent of compensation up to $57,000 for 2020.
- SEP contributions are always 100 percent vested.
- Eligible participants who are age 72 or older may receive SEP plan contributions.
Individuals must make regular contributions to Traditional and Roth IRAs by the due date of their federal income tax returns (generally April 15), not including extensions. If the deadline for filing an individual's income tax return falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, he will have until the following business day to make his contribution.
Contributions made between January 1 and April 15 of one year for the previous year are called prior-year contributions.
One of the benefits of contributing to a Traditional IRA is that the contribution may be tax deductible. Whether a contribution or a portion of a contribution is deductible depends on active participation (participating in or receiving contributions) in an employer-sponsored retirement plan, marital status, and modified adjusted gross income (MAGI).
IRA Deductibility Phase-Out Ranges for Active Participants
|Married Filling a Joint Tax Return||$104,000-$124,000|
|Non-active Participant Married to an Active Participate||$196,000-$206,000|
|Married Filing Separate Tax Return||$0-$10,000|
Yes. Traditional IRA owners are permitted to make nondeductible IRA contributions if they are not eligible for a tax deduction or if they choose to not take a deduction. The combined total of deductible and nondeductible contributions cannot exceed the annual contribution limit of $6,000, plus catch-up contributions if eligible, or 100 percent of earned income, whichever is less. IRA owners track their nondeductible IRA contributions by filing Form 8606, Nondeductible IRAs, with their federal income tax returns.
IRA owners may wish to move their IRAs from one financial organization to another. Transfers and rollovers are two methods of moving assets from one IRA to another IRA of the same type.
A transfer is a direct movement of assets between like IRAs. A transfer generally is from one financial organization to another financial organization, but may occur between IRAs at the same financial organization. Although IRA owners direct the asset transfer, they do not have actual receipt of the assets. An IRA owner may make an unlimited number of transfers in a year. The transfers may be for all or any part of an IRA balance. Transfers are not reported to the IRS.
An IRA-to-IRA rollover is another method of moving assets, tax-free from one IRA to another IRA of the same type. With rollovers, the IRA owner, surviving spouse beneficiary, or former spouse actually receives the assets through a distribution before rolling it over to another IRA. A distribution that is eventually rolled over to an IRA is treated like any other type of distribution at the time it is taken from the IRA. Consequently, the withholding rules apply. The distributing financial organization reports the IRA distribution on Form 1099-R, Distributions From Pensions, Annuities, Retirement or Profit-Sharing Plans, IRAs, Insurance Contracts, etc., and the receiving financial organization reports the rollover contribution on Form 5498,IRA Contribution Information.
Contributions made by an employer through a retirement plan known as a simplified employee pension (SEP) plan are contributed to Traditional IRAs. Once SEP plan assets are in the Traditional IRA, all the general Traditional IRA rules and regulations apply. They do not, however, affect an IRA owner’s ability to make regular Traditional IRA contributions. But participating in the SEP plan makes an individual an active participant for purposes of Traditional IRA deductions.
Traditional IRAs also may receive rollovers of pretax and after-tax assets from employer-sponsored retirement plans, which include 401(a) and 403(a) qualified retirement plans (QRPs), 403(b) plans, governmental 457(b) plans, the federal Thrift Savings Plan, and SIMPLE IRA plans (after two years of participation in the SIMPLE IRA).
Recharacterized assets also may be contributed to a Traditional IRA.
