Backdoor Roth IRA Strategy

Backdoor Roth IRA Strategy: 

High income earners are generally ineligible to contribute directly to Roth IRAs, but this IRS-approved strategy allows even those who have income above the limits to fund Roth accounts annually. 

Basic steps include:

  • Open a Traditional IRA
  • Make a non-deductible contribution up to the annual limit
  • Convert the amount to Roth IRA
  • Individual has effectively “contributed” to a Roth IRA and can repeat steps each year
