IRS contribution limits for 401ks/403b plans will increase to $17,500 in 2013 (up from $17,000 in 2012). The 50+ age group can contribute an additional ‘catch up’ amount that will remain at $5,500 for 2013.
Additionally, Roth IRA contributions will increase from $5,000 in 2012 to $5,500 for 2013 for those under 50, and $6,500 in 2013 for those 50+.
For those boss ballers making six figures (nice work!), the Roth IRA contribution phase-out range is Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) of $112,000 to $127,000 for single tax filers, and $178,000 – $188,000 for married filers. This basically means you can’t make ANY Roth IRA contributions if your income is at or above those levels. If you’re close, check with your accountant, or crunch your AGI numbers in a program like Turbo Tax come January/February to determine if you can make any contributions for tax year 2012.
Keep stashing as much cash as you can in those tax-advantaged retirement vehicles!
