Who qualifies for a tax-deductible Traditional Individual Retirement Account (IRA)?


Regardless of income, any individual with compensation from employment or earned income from self-employment and under age 70 (or the spouse of a working individual) is eligible to contribute to a Traditional IRA. Contributions for an unmarried person are tax deductible if the individual is not an active participant in an employer-sponsored retirement plan. Those who are active plan participants must meet specified income limits to qualify for tax-deductible contributions. Income refers to Adjusted Gross Income, or AGI.
