What are the tax advantages?

Financial organizations do not determine or track deductible contributions. The deductibility of an IRA contribution is determined by the IRA holder (and/or a competent tax advisor).

Traditional IRA

Tax-deferred investment growth and possible tax deduction for contributions. Taxes not paid on deductible contributions and all earnings until money is withdrawn.

Roth IRA

Tax-free investment growth if the account has been open and funded for five years and certain requirements are met.

Is my contribution deductible?

Withdrawals can be made penalty-free prior to age 59 1/2 to help pay for purchase of a first home or for education (taxes apply to all earnings and all deductible contributions withdrawn). Certain withdrawal amounts made prior to age 59 1/2 may be subject to additional 10% penalty tax.

Roth IRA

Similar to regular IRA provision. However, the account must be open and funded for at least five years to qualify for a tax-free withdrawal of investment earnings upon reaching age 59 1/2; becoming disabled; purchasing a first home; or due to death.

Are roll-overs and transfers permitted?

Traditional

You may transfer to and from other IRAs. You may roll-over from employer plans.

Roth IRA

You may transfer a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA (if adjusted gross income is no more than $100,000). Taxes must be paid on deductible contributions and all earnings when a Traditional IRA is converted to a Roth IRA, but 10% penalty tax does not apply.
