Basics of the Roth IRA

Kinkead's Korner Text

With no required minimum distributions and tax -free withdrawals, the Roth IRA is a great instrument for retirement. If you're in the 22% Federal tax bracket then 22% of all of your Traditional IRA withdrawals are owed to the IRS while withdrawals from a Roth are all yours.

With Roth IRA's, there are contribution limits like Traditional IRA's and if you're a high income earner in 2021 you are phased-out for contributions if your AGI is between $198,000 and $208,000 for joint filers and between $125,000 and $140,000 for single.

You can "convert" you Traditional IRA to a Roth to enjoy tax-free withdrawals by paying the taxes upfront. Be careful converting as the amount converted could place you in a higher bracket with additional tax consequences.You must wait 5 years or until you are 59 1/2 before withdrawing any converted amount free of a penalty.
