2020 IRS limits for traditional and Roth IRA's

It’s a new year with transformations to both Traditional IRAs and Roth IRA contribution, income and deductible limits, tax treatments and rules. Now is a good time to familiarize yourself with these reforms and evaluate your retirement savings and tax strategies. This list is not exhaustive and the complexity for each is too much to cover here. It is for this reason, Voya recommends you consult a tax professional to discuss these changes to IRAs and its impact to your specific situation.

Larger retirement contribution can mean lower tax bill. Not to mention more income in retirement.
