Dependable Retirement Planning Advisors

Medford Retirement Planning

There are a lot of rules and regulations in regard to Medford retirement planning accounts. Unless you are a financial advisor in Oregon, it is likely you do not know every single one of these. That's ok, because any Medford account you open will be managed by a professional, so you don't need to know all of them. However, you should be at least familiar with a few items.

IRS Regulations

Because Medford retirement planning accounts are tax deferred, the IRS has a lot to say regarding the how's and why's of them. This is of course understandable. After all, if they are going to give you a tax break to help you grow your Medford money, it is only reasonable that they get something in return. The majority of the taxes paid on any Medford account opened for the purposes of saving to retire are paid in relation to withdrawals. For the most part, once you put money into a Medford planning account, you do not pay any fees or taxes on it or any interest it accrues unless and until you withdraw it.

Additionally, the taxes are typically lower the longer you leave the monies in the Medford retirement planning account. The time limits for Medford withdrawals are based on your age. This means that the older you are when you make the withdrawal, the typically less you will pay in fees and taxes. The reason for this is fairly simple, and revolves around the type of account it is.

Medford retirement planning accounts are designed for and regulated based on your use of them when you retire. They are not Medford savings account that you can remove money from freely and at will. The money you put into your Oregon retirement planning account and the money you make from your investments are your money, and you are entitled to that money should you decide you need it. However, because the account and the tax breaks associated with it are for your later years, the IRS incents you to leave it alone by placing large penalties on early withdrawals.

Contribution Limits

The next most important thing to understand in regard to Medford retirement planning accounts is how much the government will allow you to invest while getting a tax break. The reason there are limits on what you can invest is simple. Say for instance, you are married and your spouse's income is enough to sustain your lifestyle. In order to help plan for retirement, you go out and get a job for the sole purpose of investing that income into a OR retirement planning account.

Now, this is a really great idea, and you should be commended for being not only that frugal (supporting your family with one income), but also for being so forward thinking as to get a job just to support you and your spouse when you retire. However, the government is a business to a degree, and it cannot run without income. A large portion of that income is made from income tax. If every married couple did what you are doing, this income would be seriously diminished. Also, it is not very good for the economy if you are earning money that is not being circulated. Therefore, the IRS has set income and percentage limits.

The limits on what you can save in your OR retirement planning account are dependent on what type of account you have, and your age. Typically, if you are under the age of 50 and you have a traditional IRA Oregon retirement planning account, you can contribute the smaller number of either your taxable compensation or $5,000. This number can be increased by $1,000 if you are older than fifty years.

If you have a Roth IRA, your OR retirement planning contribution limits are dependent on your annual income. The limits listed above still apply, except that you can only contribute the maximum if your annual income as a single person is less than $105,000 and less than $167,000 if you are married. If your income is greater than this, you can still contribute a lesser amount. However, you cannot contribute to an IRA Medford retirement planning account at all if the income of yourself and your spouse is more than $177,000 or your singular income is $120,000.

If your Medford retirement planning is done through your employer via a 401k plan, he contribution limits change. Because these Medford retirement planning accounts can be added to by yourself and your employer, there are two different limits. These, as with all IRS regulations regarding Medford retirement planning are subject to change from year to year, so be sure to check with them before you decide how how much to put in.
