What Are Traditional IRAs?

A Traditional Individual Retirement Account (IRA) is a kind of individual retirement account. Investing in a typical IRA allows you to grow your money tax-free.

Moreover, you are eligible for a tax deduction in the contribution year for that particular year if you have a traditional IRA. You only pay taxes on your investment earnings when you withdraw them during your retirement years.

This Traditional IRA Calculator helps you to define the amount of savings you need to invest each year to achieve your retirement goals.

Eligibility for Tax Deductible Contribution

Generally, if you don’t plan to take the deduction of the contribution to Traditional IRA, there is no contribution limit.

On the contrary, you can claim Traditional IRA contributions as a deduction on your Federal Income Tax Return if you meet certain guidelines.

Let us discuss the eligibility criteria for tax-deductible contribution in Traditional IRAs.

Modified AGI Limits for 2021

Contribution and Modified AGI limits differ based on whether you have a retirement plan with your employer or not. You can also use our MAGI Calculator 2021 to calculate your MAGI.

Modified AGI for individual NOT Covered by a Retirement Plan at Work

If you are single, head of household, or qualifying widow(er) then the Modified AGI limit doesn’t apply. Having any MAGI score, you can take a full deduction up to the amount of your contribution limit.

Moreover, married filing jointly or separately with a spouse who is not covered by a plan at work the Modified AGI limit doesn’t apply. Similar to the above, you can take a full deduction up to the amount of your contribution limit.

But, rules are different for married filing jointly with a spouse who is covered by a plan at work.

If your MAGI score is $198,000 or less, you are eligible for a full deduction up to the amount of your contribution limit.

In case, your MAGI is more than $198,000 but less than $208,000 then you are eligible for a partial deduction. But if the MAGI score is more than $208,000 you cannot take any deduction.

Moreover, married filing separately with a spouse who is covered by a plan at work, then the limit is very low. In such cases, if the MAGI score is below $10,000 then you can take a partial deduction. Whereas, if the MAGI score is above $10,000 then you cannot take any deductions.

It is important to note that if you file separately and did not live with your spouse at any time during the year, your IRA deduction is determined under the “Single” filing status.

Modified AGI for individual Covered by a Retirement Plan at Work

If you are single or head of household and have a MAGI score of $66,000 or less, you can take a full deduction up to the amount of your contribution limit.

But, if your MAGI is greater than $66,000 and less than $76,000, you are eligible for a partial deduction. And if the MAGI score exceeds $76,000 then you cannot take any deduction.

For married filing jointly or qualifying widow(er), if the MAGI Score is $105,000 or less, then you can take a full deduction up to the amount of your contribution limit.

Moreover, if the MAGI score is more than $105,000 but less than $125,000, then you can take a partial deduction. But, if the MAGI score is $125,000 or more, then you cannot take any deductions.

Furthermore for married filing separately having a MAGI score below $10,000 can get a partial deduction. Whereas, if the MAGI score is above $10,000 then you cannot take any deductions.

Similar to the above section, if you file separately and did not live with your spouse at any time during the year, your IRA deduction is determined under the “Single” filing status.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I take money from my traditional IRA, or my SEP or SIMPLE IRA, while I am still working?

You can take distributions from your IRA (including your SEP-IRA or SIMPLE-IRA) at any time. There is no need to show a hardship to take a distribution. However, your distribution will be includible in your taxable income and it may be subject to a 10% additional tax if you're under age 59 1/2. The additional tax is 25% if you take a distribution from your SIMPLE-IRA in the first 2 years you participate in the SIMPLE IRA plan. There is no exception to the 10% additional tax specifically for hardships.

Will I have to pay the 10% additional tax on early distributions if I am 47 years old and ordered by a divorce court to take money out of my traditional IRA to pay my former spouse?

Yes. Unless you qualify for an exception, you must still pay the 10% additional tax for taking an early distribution from your traditional IRA even if you take it to satisfy a divorce court order (Internal Revenue Code section 72(t). The 10% additional tax is charged on the early distribution amount you must include in your income and is in addition to any regular income tax from including this amount in income. Unlike distributions made to a former spouse from a qualified retirement plan under a Qualified Domestic Relations Order, there is no comparable exception.
