Despite earlier announced retirement plan limitations under the new tax law, the IRS now says the law won’t affect 2018 benefits and contributions.
The new law also specifies that contribution limits for individual retirement accounts (IRAs), and the income thresholds related to IRAs and the saver’s credit, are to be adjusted for cost-of-living changes using procedures that apply to many basic income tax parameters, the agency states.
“Although the new law made changes to how these cost-of-living adjustments are made, after taking the applicable rounding rules into account, the amounts for 2018 [delineated in the prior announcements] remain unchanged,” the IRS stated.
