Louisville, Colorado (PRWEB) April 15, 2014
New Direction IRA, Inc. (NDIRA), an IRA and HSA provider, reminded account holders today, April 15, that although they must make contributions to their retirement accounts without tax consequence by the end of the day, they can still invest their accounts throughout the year.
Contributions for the previous year can be made up until tax day, or the day in which federal and state tax returns are due, which typically falls on April 15. There is no extension to open or contribute to a retirement account.
The amount of money one can contribute to their retirement account varies depending on the account type. For instance, the contribution limit for a Traditional IRA for 2013 is $5,500 for filer under 50 and $6,500 for those over 50.
New Direction IRA CEO Bill Humphrey said contributing the maximum amount to your retirement account every year allows you to then maximize your investment opportunities.
“The more money you supply these tax-free and tax-deferred accounts,” Humphrey said, “the more you’ll be able to do with them. You’re IRA or 401(k) can buy real estate, precious metals, invest in companies, buy stock and much more.”
“But you can’t get the tax advantages on these investments unless you contribute on time,” Humphrey added.
As Humphrey noted, IRAs, HSAs and other retirement accounts can invest in alternative assets like real estate, precious metals, private equity, issue loans and more. By opening a plan with a self-directed IRA (SDIRA) provider, the suite of investment opportunities grows beyond publicly-traded investments like stocks, bonds and mutual funds.
“We offer workshops, classes, webinars and educational materials on account types, how to maximize contributions and how to invest those contributions in alternative assets,” Humphrey said.
New Direction IRA provides industry-best technology and client support to help get your retirement savings invested in any allowable asset type. The first step, Humphrey said, is opening an account and contributing before the deadline.
