Self-directed Roth IRAs give owners control over investment decisions and allow plenty of alternative investments to choose from.
Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) April 09, 2014
Roth IRAs are offer a way for investors to hedge their bets in the thought that today’s taxation rate is lower than it will be in years to come. All contributions to Roth IRAs are made after tax and therefore not taxed upon distribution. Tax-deferred plans (such as traditional IRAs) tax contributions when distributions are made at retirement age.
Benefits of Roth IRAs include:
- Contributions can be made after the age of 70 ½
- No required minimum distributions at the age of 70 ½
- Contributions may be withdrawn at any age with no tax liability in most cases
- At the age of 59 ½ years, if the Roth has been funded for at least five years, tax-free withdrawals can be taken of both contributions and earnings
- Roth IRAs can be self-directed allowing account owners to control the choices of the investments the account acquires
"Roth IRAs are popular and flexible tools for building wealth toward retirement," says Jack Callahan, Managing Partner of Advanta IRA Services. "Self-directed Roth IRAs give owners control over investment decisions and allow plenty of alternative investments to choose from." Investors are able to plan for retirement and are also able to withdraw funds without dire tax penalties. However, while Roth IRAs are less restrictive in terms of withdrawals, there are also some reasons why these accounts many not be the best idea for some investors.

- The process of converting assets held within a tax-deferred IRA into a tax-free Roth IRA
