Julia Carlson |

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has raised the limits for retirement contributions, and some of these cost-of-living-based adjustments have reached near-record levels. Here are five examples of what the new limits are for 2023.

  1. Traditional and ROTH Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) - IRA contribution limits are up $500 in 2023 to $6,500. Catch-up contributions for those over age 50 remain at $1,000, bringing the total limit to $7,500.
  2. Roth IRAs - The income phase-out for Roth IRA contributions will increase by $9,000 to a range of $138,000-$153,000 for single filers and heads of household. For married couples filing jointly, the  phase-out will be $218,000 to $228,000, a $14,000 increase. Married individuals filing separately will see no change to their phase-out range of $0-10,000 .
  3. Workplace Retirement Accounts - Those with 401(k), 403(b), 457 plans, and similar accounts will see a $2,000 increase for 2023, with the limit rising to $22,500. Those aged 50 and older will have the ability to contribute an extra $7,500, bringing their total limit to $30,000.
  4. SIMPLE Accounts - A $1,500 increase in limits for 2023 gives individuals contributing from their salary to this incentive match plan a $15,500 maximum.
  5. Simplified Employee Pension Accounts (SEP IRA) - The IRS increased the 2023 SEP limit to $66,000 which is an increase of $5,000 from 2022.

 There are also several other changes the IRS has made that can impact your assets and taxation. For one, the IRS also announced a $1,000 increase to the annual exclusion for gifts, making it $17,000 per person. Also, the new federal estate tax exclusion threshold will also be increased in 2023 to $12,920,000.
