Contribution Limits & Rules for IRA and CESA

Due to the impacts of the coronavirus, the IRS has extended the contributions deadline to July 15, 2020 for the 2019 tax year.

Tax-deferred accounts have limits on the amount of money that can be contributed per year. In some cases, the rules get very detailed and take into consideration how you file your taxes, your income, and your work status. Here’s some information about the tax ramifications of how you fund your tax-deferred accounts as well as additional deduction limits and withdrawal rules.

At Thrivent Mutual Funds, we recommend you consult your tax advisor to make sure you’re getting the most out of your investments. Thrivent Mutual Funds and their representatives cannot provide legal or tax advice.

Tax-Deductible Contributions

Your traditional IRA contributions may be tax-deductible, but there are several factors that may limit and disqualify you from the deduction, depending on whether you or your spouse are covered by a retirement plan at work and/or your income exceeds certain levels. You’re considered covered by an employer retirement plan if you or your spouse have:

  • A contribution plan (profit-sharing, 401(k), stock bonus, or money purchase pension)
  • An IRA-styled plan like a SEP, SARSEP, or SIMPLE IRA
  • A benefit plan (pension that pays a retirement benefit)

Income levels are determined by your Modified Adjusted Gross Income (MAGI), which is your annual adjusted gross income with certain deductions (e.g., student loan and IRA deductions) added back in.

See IRS Publication 590-A Contributions to Individual Retirement Arrangements for more information.
