Traditional IRA

An individual retirement account that allows individuals to direct pretax income, up to specific limits, toward investments that can grow tax-deferred (no capital gains or dividend income is taxed). Individual taxpayers are allowed to contribute 100% of their compensation up to a specified dollar amount. Contributions may be tax-deductible depending of the taxpayer's income, tax filing status and other factors.
