Traditional IRA Deadline Extension

Traditional IRA Deadline Extension

It’s getting to be that time of year again. No, I don’t mean the Holiday season time, I mean tax time. That dreaded three-letter word “TAX” means it’s time to gather paperwork and review plans for the rest of the year. 

One thing that can help is understanding the traditional IRA deadline extension and contribution limits.   These dates and limits are essential need-to-know information for investors.

As investors, we want to be sure we are taking advantage of decreasing our tax burden, but also building up retirement savings accounts too.

One investment vehicle that allows you to do these two things is a Traditional IRA.

What is the Traditional IRA

The Traditional Individual Retirement Arrangement (IRA) was created in 1975. 

Traditional IRAs allow you to make contributions to your IRA that are tax deferred. This means monies you put into an IRA grow tax deferred until you pull them out. Additionally, you can write these contributions off on your taxes. It can be a way to grow your retirement account and reduce your tax burden for the previous tax year.

Traditional IRA Deadline Extension for Contributions

Typically, taxpayers have until April 15 to make contributions to their IRAs. Now the IRS at times makes adjustments to that due date depending on where that day might fall. 

For example, if tax day falls on a Saturday, the IRS might extend the date until the following Monday (needs to be on an active USPS mailing day). 

Other extensions occur with unforeseen events, such as with the extensions for 2020 and 2021 due to the Pandemic. 

Standard Contribution Dates

For Tax year 2021, you can make contributions up to April 15, 2022. This gives investors 15 1/2 months to make contributions.

As you can see, the traditional IRA deadline extension goes into the next calendar year.

One note: If you’re sending these contributions by mail, you need to ensure that it is postmarked by the correct deadline.
