A Roth IRA conversion might be right for you:
If you are single, you must make less than $132,000 to contribute to a Roth IRA for the 2016 tax year. If you are married, your combined income must be less than $194,000 in 2016. However, you can convert a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA no matter how high your income. Roth IRAs are popular because qualifying distributions are tax-free and annual distributions are not required after age 70½. A conversion to a Roth is a taxable event, so factor that into your analysis. For more information, call us.

Grandparents can help reduce the cost of college:
A growing number of grandparents are helping raise their grandchildren. Grandparents are giving their time and money, helping with the cost of toys, clothing, education and extracurricular activities. This can add up to thousands of dollars. Many millennials indicate they could not afford their lifestyle if it were not for the help their parents provide.
While helping to support grandchildren may improve the quality of life for the grandparents, it's critical they build their own financial security first. One way for grandparents to benefit their grandchildren while protecting their own finances is contributing to a college plan. This provides a potential tax break while preparing their grandchildren for an education their parents might not be able to afford on their own.
If you would like more information on tax breaks associated with education plans, give us a call.
