Updated Contribution Limits

Hello Megan,

Good news, you may be able to save more money! Congress increased contribution limits to account for inflation in many retirement vehicles. Here are the updated limits for IRA's and employer retirement accounts:

Account Type

Limit if <50


Limit if 50+*









* If you turn 50 any time during 2023 (born in 1973 or earlier) you can make catch-up contributions for the full year.

Your employer retirement plan is one of the best ways to save for the future and reduce your current tax bill. Please reach out to us if you would like someone on our team to review your plan and help you optimize your contributions. 

In addition to updated contribution limits, we have information on distribution rules for inherited IRA's. If you have inherited an IRA in 2020 or later, please click here.

Fidelity: Tax Statement Timing

Your Form 1099-R should arrive by the end of January, BUT your consolidated 1099 (from a taxable account) will not arrive until mid February or later. It’s common for consolidated 1099s to require minor corrections after they are issued. For this reason, if you expect to receive a consolidated 1099 from a taxable account we recommend you wait until at least mid March to file your tax return. If you receive a corrected consolidated 1099 after filing your return, you will need to file an amended return.
