Tax Deduction Consulting: IRA Deduction Limits

Deduction Limits in an IRA

The deduction limits in an IRA are subject to change each year. The current amounts and the projected deductions for upcoming years can be found in IRS Publication 590.

The Internal Revenue Service's Publication 590, Individual Retirement Arrangements, gives all the information for the deduction limits in an IRA.

The secondary purpose is to provide a bit of current tax relief for lower income workers. The fact that contributions are deductible is one method this is accomplished.
