A Roth for Your Child?

If your child worked part-time this year, he or she might benefit from a Roth IRA. There is no age limit on contributions as long as the child has earned income (even if you actually provide the cash in a gift equal to the same amount).

Although tax-free distributions from the Roth generally are not available until the child turns age 59½—a long time away—the contributions can grow into a sizeable nest egg. Also, tax-free withdrawals may be allowed due to disability or for a first-time home purchase (up to $10,000).

Finally, your child will learn valuable lessons about saving for retirement.

When we started One Source Manufacturing in 1997, we quickly went through two to three accounting firms without much success. Then we found Glass & Company and have been with them ever since. There are very few CPA firms in the Austin area that have the capability to service manufacturing companies. Glass & Company has a thorough understanding of the challenges that manufacturers face and the expertise to handle it all.””
