  • There are no income limitations for making contributions. However, deductibility is affected by income amounts.
  • Earnings are exempt from federal income tax return until withdrawn
  • Must start taking withdrawals at age 70½

Roth IRA

  • For federal income tax return purposes, contributions are not tax-deductible, but can be withdrawn any time — tax-free
  • Earnings are tax-free for qualified distributions
  • No mandatory withdrawals at any age
