Let’s Strategize With Your IRA- Season 4: Episode 6
IRAs, whether Traditional or Roth, have unique characteristics. Depending on the type of IRA you have, you may be able to manage your taxes or your income from your IRA by managing the taxes on the withdrawals.
Roth IRA distributions are tax-free when the rules for taking withdrawals are all met. So sometimes the tricky part is getting the money into the Roth IRA in the first place. Do you make a regular contribution to your Roth? Should you convert your Traditional to a Roth? When is it a good idea to do either of these, and when is it not?
Get your IRA strategy questions answered with “Professor” Rick Plum, CFP® as he speaks with host and moderator Johnny Dean on this week’s episode of Managing Your Financial Future!
Roth IRA distributions of principal from a Roth IRA are tax-free; however, any earnings will be taxed at ordinary income rates and a 10% penalty tax will apply if withdrawn prior to age 59½ or within five years of the date the Roth IRA was established, whichever is longer.
Different types of investments and/or investment strategies involve varying levels of risk, and there can be no assurance that any specific investment or investment strategy (including the investments purchased and/or investment strategies devised by Lucia Capital Group (“LCG”)) will be either suitable or profitable for a client's or prospective client's portfolio, thus, investments may result in a loss of principal. Accordingly, no client or prospective client should assume that the presentation (or any component thereof) serves as the receipt of, or a substitute for, personalized advice from LCG or from any other investment professional.
