Sandy's Financial Corner

It's that time of year when we are scrambling to get our taxes done before the April 18th deadline. It's also approaching the deadline to contribute to either your ROTH or Traditional IRA for 2016. The deadline to contribute is the tax filing time. The maximum allowable for 2016/2017 is $5500 if you are under age 50 and $6500 if you are over age 50. Also, if you are turning age 70 1/2 or you are already over age 70 1/2, you need to make certain to address your Required Minimum Distributions for the year. Did you know there is a 50% penalty if you do not take out the required amount?
