This is another contradiction in terms. There is no Roth IRA tax deduction, but this does not mean that the Roth IRA does not have tax implications.

Roth IRA Tax Deduction

A Roth IRA is a type of Individual Retirement Account. They were established in 1998 and named after the Senator who was the main supporter of the legislation that established it. The difference between a Roth IRA and a traditional IRA is that the contributions to the account are made with funds that have already been taxed. This means that the contribution may not be taken as a tax deduction. It is too late; the tax has already been paid.

However, this is the idea. Since the contributions have already been taxed, they are not taxed when they are withdrawn. The owner of the Roth IRA has the option of withdrawing all of the funds up to the total of his contributions at any time, for any reason, without incurring any additional tax liability. There also is no penalty. The operator of the Roth IRA has more options on the kinds of investments that can be made, and the potential for earnings within the account is high.

When the owner of the account reaches the age of 59.5 years, and as long as the account is seasoned, which means it has been open for at least five years, the earnings become qualified and may be withdrawn without penalty. One of the conditions that would make a Roth IRA attractive would be when the taxpayer anticipates being in a much higher tax bracket after retirement. This is not as strange as it might sound. Assuming that income continues to rise during your lifetime, and investments are made that pay off large returns after being held for years, the taxpayer might easily have more wealth and income after retirement.

Since the tax has been paid before the contributions have been made, and most likely at the lower rate, the tax payer ultimately pays less tax in the long run. If he was to pay the taxes after retirement, he would have to pay the...
