The Traditional IRA is the most common type of Individual Retirement Arrangement (IRA). Why? Well, it is probably because most people rollover their employer’s pre-tax retirement account into a Traditional IRA. The Traditional IRA offers the advantage of providing a tax deduction for those who qualify. As a result, it is very appealing to those wanting to pay themselves instead of the IRS.
A Traditional IRA is a type of individual retirement account in which you can make pre-tax contributions. The investments in the account grow tax-deferred. Then, you pay income tax on withdrawals at your regular tax rate. Withdrawals taken before reaching the age of 59.5 are subject to an early-withdrawal penalty.
