Improved Retirement Planning; The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has updated two comprehensive IRA publications that can help the taxpayers in a better planning of retirement in the United States. With this update in the IRA publications, anyone making IRA contributions or receiving IRA distributions for tax year 2019 or considering making retirement donations before April 15, 2020 can get ultimate help in a better retirement planning. The IRS also increased 401(k) Contributions & Benefits Limit on Retirement Plans in 2020. With this further updates, it is obvious that the agency is taking initiatives for a better retirement in the United States.
Contributions to a traditional or Roth IRA can be made by most of the U.S. taxpayers who work. Contributions to a traditional IRA are typically tax deductible and distributions are usually taxable. Conversely, contributions to a Roth IRA plan are not tax deductible, other than qualified distributions that are tax-free. Taxpayers are allowed by the IRS for making contributions until April 15, 2020, and count them on their 2019 tax returns.
