Annual Contribution Limits for 2019

As 2018 is comes to a close, we all begin to look ahead to 2019. For 2019 many of the contribution limits increased from their 2018 levels. In calculating these, IRS compares the official cost of living increase from September of 2018 to September of 2017. Because the cost of living was higher in 2018 many of the indexed (for inflation) contributions, limitations, thresholds, etc in the IRS were adjusted.

Five Key Elements to Private Money Lending

Privately money lending through a Self-Directed IRA or 401(k)
to real estate investors is a commonly used strategy that may grow retirement funds. In addition to consulting a team of advisors to decide if the debtor’s investment plans are in unison with your professional portfolio, there are a few case-specific characteristics to consider.

Does Converting to a Roth IRA Make Sense for You?

Periodically, the question arises of whether to convert a Traditional IRA to a Roth IRA. Generally clients must ‘crunch the numbers’ to decide whether this makes financial sense. As with most tax calculations, there is no hard and fast rule for everyone. Several factors need to be considered. Some are easy to determine (your age, ability to pay the tax without retirement funds) and others are not so easy (rate of return on investments and effective tax rate in retirement)

Is it a Good Time to Convert Real Estate in Traditional IRAs to Roth IRAs?

Now that we are into the New Year, savvy investors holding real estate in traditional IRAs are assessing whether now is a good time to convert those IRAs to Roth IRAs. The main reason investors consider converting is to place those retirement plans in a better tax position. Keep in mind that earnings on Roth IRA investments grow tax free as opposed to just growing tax deferred as in the case of Traditional IRAs.
