The IRS recently announced the 2016 retirement limits. These limits are adjusted each year based on the cost of living index and, due to low inflation, most retirement limits will remain the same as 2015.
A few other changes noted by the IRS were:
For an IRA contributor who is not covered by a workplace retirement plan and is married to someone who is covered, the deduction is phased out if the couple's income is between $184,000 and $194,000-up from $183,000 and $193,000.
The adjusted gross income (AGI) phase-out range for taxpayers making contributions to a Roth IRA is $184,000 to $194,000 for married couples filing jointly, up from $183,000 to $193,000. For singles and heads of household, the income phase-out range is $117,000 to $132,000-up from $116,000 to $131,000.
The AGI limit for the saver's credit (also known as the retirement savings contribution credit) for low- and moderate-income workers is $61,500 for married couples filing jointly, up from $61,000; $46,125 for heads of household, up from $45,750; and $30,750 for married individuals filing separately and for singles-up from $30,500.
