You don’t need a ninja suit and a broom to sneak through this clean back door and “steal” an extra $10k. 

Many of my clients see the income limit for contributing to a Roth IRA ($150k/year single; $228k/year married) and give up on this wholly beneficial retirement account. 

This year, the contribution limit is $6,500 for an individual. Since a Roth IRA grows tax free and is 100% yours, it is an account everyone should take advantage of. Unfortunately the income limits leave many to believe it is not an option. I am here to show you exactly how to get in that back door, cleanly.

  1. In order for this to work, you must not have money in any other IRA accounts: traditional, rollover, SEP or SIMPLE. This does not include other types of employer accounts like 401(k), 403(b), etc.
  2. Open a traditional IRA account and contribute $6,500 for 2023 (if under age 50 – $7,500 if older)
  3. Wait for a few weeks/months and open a Roth IRA and transfer the money from the traditional to the Roth account. Then invest your cash into a low cost index fund and get excited about your extra $10k of tax-savings.

That’s it. Clean and simple. So what are you waiting for?
