Traditional IRAs

The traditional IRA first became available in 1975 to encourage people to save for their retirement and to provide for beneficiaries upon death. Higher contribution limits and greater flexibility were added with the implementation of the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act (EGTRRA) of 2001. If deferring taxes on part of your income is your tax strategy, a Traditional IRA may be right for you.


ROTH IRAs

The Roth IRA was first made available on January 1, 1998. Contributions are made with after-tax dollars and earnings are free from taxes and IRA penalties if certain conditions are met.


IRA Transfers and Rollovers

It’s easy to move your IRA to Community Bank of the South. Whether a Roth or Traditional IRA, you can move existing IRA money as follows:

  • Transfers — you can come into our office, establish an IRA account with us, and complete a transfer form. This form is then sent to the institution that currently holds your funds. After receipt, the funds are sent directly to us for deposit into your account. The IRS places no limits on transfers and no part of this transaction is reported to the IRS.
  • Rollovers — To complete a rollover, you take the funds from one institution and deposit into another institution. A rollover may be done once per year and the deposit must be completed within 60 days of distribution from the first institution. A rollover is also used when moving funds from a qualified pension plan to a Traditional IRA.

Distributions

When you withdraw money from a retirement account, it is called a distribution. Distributions from a Traditional IRA are reported to the IRS as income and as such, may be subject to income tax. There may also be IRS imposed penalties except under special circumstances such as death, first time home purchase, disability, education, and reaching age 59 ½.

Distributions from a Roth IRA have more complex tax implications. You should speak with your tax advisor, accountant, or attorney before proceeding with this type of transaction.


Required Minimum Distributions (RMD)

Your required minimum distribution is the minimum amount you must withdraw from your account each year. You generally have to start taking withdrawals from your IRA, SEP IRA, SIMPLE IRA, or retirement plan account when you reach age 72 (70 ½ if you reach 70 ½ before January 1, 2020)
