Spotlight on the CARES Act | IRS Tax Deadline Extension

Part of the CARES Act, one of the provisions that was recently passed was the extension of the tax filing deadline from April 15th, two July 15th.

Does this extend the 2019 contribution deadline for any of my accounts?

That includes an extension of your IRA contributions for traditional IRA’s, Roth IRA’s, and health savings accounts, which is also referred to as HSA’s.

How do I take advantage of this extension?

The max contribution for an IRA, whether it’s traditional or Roth, is $6,000. If you are 50 or older, it is, you have a $1,000 catch-up, so your total contribution max is $7,000 for the year 2019. And for HSA’s, an individual account, the max contribution is $3,500. And for a family HSA it is $7,000 for year 2019.

Now just make sure that when you make these contributions, communicate it with your advisor, and whoever’s processing these contributions, that they are for the year 2019. And thank you.
