Features Traditional IRA Roth IRA
Who can contribute? You can contribute if you (or your spouse if filing jointly) have taxable compensation but not after you are age 70½ or older. You can contribute at any age if you (or your spouse if filing jointly) have taxable compensation and your modified adjusted gross income is below certain amounts (see 2017 and 2018 limits).
Are contributions deductible? You can deduct your contributions if you qualify. No
How much can I contribute?

The most you can contribute to all of your Traditional and Roth IRAs is the smaller of:

  • $5,500 (for 2015 - 2018), or $6,500 if you're age 50 or older by the end of the year; or
  • your taxable compensation for the year.
What is the deadline for contributions? Your tax return filing deadline (not including extensions).
When can I withdraw money? Anytime
Am I required to take minimum distributions? You must start taking distributions by April 1 following the year in which you turn age 70½ and by December 31 of later years. No, not if you are the IRA's original owner.
Are my withdrawals and distributions taxable? Any deductible contributions and earnings you withdraw or that are distributed from your Traditional IRA are taxable. If you are under age 59½, you may have to pay an additional 10% tax for early withdrawals unless you qualify for an exception. No, if it's a qualified distribution or a withdrawal that is a qualified distribution. Otherwise, part of the distribution or withdrawal may be taxable. If you are under age 59½, you may also have to pay an additional 10% tax for early withdrawals unless you qualify for an exception.
