Are you eligible to make a tax-deductible IRA contribution?

Whether or not you are eligible to make a tax-deductible IRA contribution this year depends on several factors including your income if either you or your spouse has a retirement plan at work and a number of other factors. To get started we have listed a few of the important questions that you should ask yourself, and review with your tax and/or legal advisor, to find out if you may be eligible to make a tax-deductible IRA contribution this year:

 

 

Are you (or your spouse)covered by a retirement plan at work? 

 

What if you (or your spouse) are NOT covered by a retirement plan at work?

 

What does "covered by" an Employer's Retirement Plan mean?

 

How much can I contribute to an IRA (if I am eligible)? 

 

 

 

Find out if you can make a tax-deductible contribution to your IRA by based on your personal situation. In addition to the effect of modified AGI on deductible contributions, you must consider whether or not either you (or your spouse) are covered by a retirement plan at work, how you file your taxes and more. Be sure to review your personal situation with your tax advisor prior to making any tax-related decisions or investments.
