Question by rainfingers: Why is there an upper income limit for contributing to a Roth IRA?
People over a certain income are not allowed to make any contributions to a Roth IRA. Why? Wouldn’t people with high income rather pay the taxes later anyway (as they would do with a traditional IRA)? In other words, doesn’t this rule just prohibit people from doing something they’d already rather not do?
Mrs. F: in addition to the upper income limit, there’s also a yearly contribution limit ($ 4000 this year). But Roth IRAs are still very, very, worth it! You can always put more money in next year, and the year after that, etc. Contribute the maximum, or as much as you can, every year; you’ll be glad later.

Best answer:

Answer by Mrs F
That doesn’t sound right. We were thinking of getting one of those sometime in the winter, but we should be able to contribute all we want!
