Lower personal income tax rates under President Trump expected to increase benefit of making Roth IRA contributions

The Trump victory and a low tax income policy will likely lead more tax advisors to consider and recommend the Roth IRA or Roth 401(k) contribution over a pre-tax retirement contribution

IRA Financial Group, a leading provider of self-directed IRA and Solo 401(k) plans, expects to see a surge in the popularity of the self-directed Roth IRA. Based on Donald Trump’s Presidential Election victory, Mr. Trump’s tax plan has called for a reduction of income tax rates on individuals.

According to Adam Bergman, a partner with the IRA Financial Group, "when a tax professional helps a client decide between making a pre-tax or Roth IRA or 401(k) plan contribution, one of the primary items the advisor will look at is the financial impact a deduction will have on the taxpayer’s income tax liability. The general thinking goes that if there is less tax to pay then taking a tax deduction would have less of a financial impact than in a higher tax environment, For example, if an individual earns $40,000 in annual income, under the Trump tax plan he or she would be subject to $4800 in taxes, versus a 25% income tax rate in 2016. Sure, the IRA contribution deduction would be beneficial in reducing any income tax due, but such a deduction would likely have a lower financial impact on the taxpayer than with higher tax rates likely making the Roth contribution a more attractive option for many taxpayers. The Trump victory and a low tax income policy will likely lead more tax advisors to consider and recommend the self-directed Roth IRA or Roth 401(k) contribution over a pre-tax retirement contribution."

The IRA Financial Group was founded by a group of top law firm tax and ERISA lawyers who have worked at some of the largest law firms in the United States, such as White & Case LLP, Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP, and Thelen LLP.
