An IRA is a great way to save for retirement. Both traditional and Roth IRAs offer different types of tax advantages that can help you be more efficient with your retirement savings. However, because of their tax-advantaged status, there are some IRS rules that govern how much you can contribute to an IRA.

There is a yearly limit to the amount that anyone can contribute to a traditional or Roth IRA. With a traditional IRA, anyone can contribute, but depending on your annual income and other circumstances — like whether you’re covered by a retirement plan at work — you may not be able to deduct your contributions from your taxes.

With a Roth IRA, depending on your income, you may not be able to contribute the full amount, or at all.
