Tax Deductible IRA Contributions

For active participants in employer retirement plans, phase out for making individual retirement account (IRA) contributions will occur at AGI between $73,000 and $83,000 for single or head of household filers, $16,000 and $136,000 to joint filers.

For those with IRA’s who do not actively participate in another plan, but their spouse does, phaseout will now range from $218,000 to $228,000 for those married and filing joint returns. For a married individual filing separately, the phase=out range is not subject to an annual cost-of-living and remains at $0 to $10,000.

These are income limits on tax-deductible contributions, however, there is no overall limit for contributing to a traditional IRA. Phaseouts do not apply if neither the taxpayer nor the spouse has a workplace retirement plan.

Roth IRA income limits

Single or head of household: If you make less than $153,0000 (phase out between $129,00 and $153,000)

Married filing jointly: If you make less than $218,000 (phase out between $218,00 and $228,000)

Married filing separately: If living with the spouse, you will not be able to contribute, if separately, same limits of single or head of household.
