What is a pretax investment? Traditional retirement plans and 401(ks)s are two examples of pretax investments that can help you save for retirement.
Until you begin taking distributions, you won’t have to pay taxes on any contributions to these accounts. These investments, also known as pre-tax investments, are tax-deferred investments. This is because the money that you have in these accounts can enjoy tax-deferred growth.
Individuals covered by a workplace retirement plan will see the tax deduction for a traditional IRA phased out in 2021 for incomes between $105,000 to $125,000 for married couples filing jointly and $66,000 to $76,000 for single filers.
Remember that you will need to start taking minimum distributions from a traditional IRA or 401(k) once you turn 72. Withdrawals are treated as ordinary income. If taken before age 59 1/2, you may be subject to a 10% federal tax penalty.
What is an after-tax investment? The most popular one is the Roth IRA. A Roth IRA allows you to make a contribution with after-tax dollars. Contributions to a Roth IRA can be made based on income, just like a traditional IRA. Contributions to a Roth IRA, like a traditional IRA, are limited based on income.
Roth IRA distributions after the age of 59 1/2 must be held for five years to qualify for tax-free or penalty-free withdrawals of earnings. You can also withdraw tax-free or penalty-free if you die. Minimum annual withdrawals are not required for the original Roth IRA owner.
