Traditional or Roth?
When it comes to your IRAs, you have a choice. Both Traditional and Roth IRAs offer potential tax benefits,* but at different times. Ask your tax advisor to find out which IRA is best for you.
The federal government sets the maximum amount investors may contribute to their IRAs each year (see table). This amount can be divided among both Traditional and Roth IRAs.
