Ep.80 Backdoor Roth IRA for 2023 and Beyond
Roth IRAs can be established and funded for high-income earners by using what is known as the “back door” Roth IRA contribution method. Many high-income earners believe that they can’t contribute to a Roth IRA because they make too much money and/or because they participate in a company 401k plan. Fortunately, this thinking is wrong. While direct contributions to a Roth IRA are limited to taxpayers with income in excess of $140,000 ($218,000 for married taxpayers, 2023), those whose income exceeds these amounts may make annual contributions to a non-deductible traditional IRA and then convert those amounts over to a Roth IRA.
EP. 79 Roth Conversions and Chunking Before Year End
Roth conversions remain popular as many fear that tax rates will only increase in the next few years, so why not convert now at lower tax rates and let the account grow and come out tax-free at retirement? Remember, if you have a traditional IRA or 401(k), then that money grows tax-deferred, but you pay tax on the money as it is drawn out at retirement. If you have traditional dollars where you obtained tax deductions for those contributions, you then have to pay tax on the amount you want to convert to Roth.
