It’s Not Too Late to Make an IRA Contribution

Contributions to an individual retirement account made before April 15, 2021 can be claimed on your taxes, one of the few potential savings still available for the 2020 tax year — and a way to boost retirement income!

Contributing to an individual retirement account (IRA) is a great way to boost your retirement savings.

The deadline to make an individual retirement account contribution for the 2020 tax year is Tax Day — Thursday, April 15, 2021.

It’s one of the only things that you can still do to potentially save on your 2020 taxes, and it’s an easy move to make. And you can still contribute to an IRA even if you participate in an employer-sponsored retirement plan, like a 401(k) or 403(b).

For the 2020 tax year, the combined annual contribution limit for Roth and traditional IRAs is $6,000 ($7,000 if you're age 50 or older).
