Because the Self-Directed Roth IRA affords many investors the unique opportunity to grow their retirement investments tax-free, it is an extremely popular tool across the nation. Investors can choose their own investments to keep within a Self-Directed Roth IRA. But when it comes to understanding how income thresholds work, many people are left confused.

That is why American IRA, based in Asheville, NC, recently released a comprehensive guide to understanding these Self-Directed Roth IRA income thresholds at their website, This post, aimed at those considering a Self-Directed Roth IRA for their own retirement needs, explains what kinds of income are required to make the normal contributions to a Roth IRA. This information enables investors to get a sense of whether a Self-Directed Roth IRA might be the right choice for their particular retirement strategy.

“Self-Directed Roth IRAs are some of the most popular accounts out there,” said Jim Hitt, American IRA CEO. “Not only do they make for tax-free growth, but with Self-Directed Roth IRAs, you pay taxes upfront. That can lead to a tremendous amount of savings, which means that people will get to enjoy a tremendous amount of their compounded returns over the years. Self-directing a Roth IRA is much more powerful, because it puts the power to invest back in the holder’s hands.”

But Jim Hitt also notes that the income thresholds can throw a wrench in retirement plans, especially for those investors who have yet to research what those thresholds might be.

“As with any of these accounts, there are limits and thresholds to think about,” said Jim Hitt. “It is not that these are particularly prohibitive—but if you want to be a mindful investor and really take your time and do research about what option might be best for you, it helps to know about these. That is why we released this comprehensive guide.”
