Not allowed. Allowed
The annual contribution limit is $5,500. If age 50 or older, contribution limit is $6,500 (allows for $1,000 catch up contribution). The annual limit applies to any combination of IRA plans other than ESA. Contributions are fully tax deductible if you are not an active participant in an employer retirement plan. Investments grow on a tax-deferred basis. Distributions must begin at age 70 ½. Earnings are taxed only upon withdrawal.
As long as you have earned income, you can establish and contribute to a ROTH IRA even after age 70 ½. While contributions are not tax deductible, contributions and earnings can be withdrawn tax-free, and unlike traditional IRAs, you are not required to begin taking required distributions after reaching age 70 ½. By converting your traditional IRA to a Roth IRA, you can enjoy tax-free withdrawals. However, the amount you convert is subject to income tax now.
Traditional IRAs, Roth IRAs and Coverdell Education Savings Accounts must be opened and/or funded by the April 15th tax-filing deadline to receive your tax deductions. A filing extension won’t buy you extra time.
Making-Up for Lost Time
Catch-up contributions—individuals who have reached age 50 by the end of the year will be able to make additional catch-up contributions of $1,000 per year to their traditional or Roth IRA.
- Coverdell Education Savings Account (ESA)
A Coverdell education savings account (Coverdell ESA) is a trust or custodial account set up in the United States solely for paying qualified education expenses for the designated beneficiary of the account. There are certain requirements to set up a Coverdell ESA:
- When you establish the account, the designated beneficiary must be under the age of 18 or be a special needs beneficiary.
- You must make the designation of the account as a Coverdell ESA when you create it.
You may be able to contribute to a Coverdell ESA to finance the beneficiary's qualified education expenses. Contributions are not deductible. There's no limit to the number of accounts that can be established for a particular beneficiary; however, the total contribution to all accounts on behalf of a beneficiary in any year can't exceed $2,000.
