The article discusses the aspects to consider in making contributions to a Roth individual retirement account (IRA) in the U.S. There is a need for taxpayers to consider eligibility to make contributions and number of years to accumulate earnings. Participants are advised to decide on the traditional pre-tax 401(k) salary deferral and the new after-tax Roth 401(k) salary deferral. In Roth IRA, there is no required minimum distributions of contributions, but, it is not available to everyone.
