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.
IRA Contribution limit remains at $ 5,000 for 2012
