American IRA announces that the Internal Revenue Service announced new, higher allowable contribution limits for most tax-advantaged retirement accounts, including self-directed IRAs, for 2015.

Limits for employees in 401(k), 403(b), most 457 plans and the federal government’s Thrift Savings Plan will increase from $17,500 to $18,000 next year, the IRS announced. Additionally, allowable ‘catch-up’ contribution limits for those ages 50 and older are also increased from $5,500 to $6,000.

Total contributions to a defined contribution plan, including the employer’s match, are increasing to $53,000 in 2015, up from $52,000 this year.

IRAs
The total dollar amount that can be considered when calculating allowable employer-sponsored defined contribution retirement plans is also increasing next year, from $260,000 to $265,000.

Contribution limits for IRAs, however, remain unchanged. But the IRS isn’t totally ignoring IRA owners, either. Instead, the IRS is modestly raising the thresholds beyond which IRA contributions become non-deductible:

For those who participate in an employer’s plan

Deductions for IRA contributions for individuals and couples will be phased out after adjusted gross income falls between $61,000 and $71,000. That is a $1,000 increase from last year. For couples filing a joint return, the threshold increases by $2,000, from $98,000 to $118,000.

For those not covered by a workplace plan – But who have a spouse who is

Deductions are phased out when the couple’s AGI reaches $183,000 to $193,000, also an increase of $2,000 over 2014.

Roth IRA Income Limits Increasing

Income limits on Roth IRA contributions will increase in 2015, to the $116,000 to $131,000 range for singles and heads of households, and to the $183,000-193,000 range for married couples. Both are increases of $2,000 over the previous year.

The changes come about as a result of the annual cost of living review that affects a wide variety of federal benefits, such as military base pay and Social Security benefits.
