Southland offers three different types of IRAs
A traditional IRA is a tax-deferred retirement savings account. You pay taxes on your money only when you make withdrawals in retirement. Deferring taxes means all of your dividends, interest payments and capital gains can compound each year without being hindered by taxes - allowing an IRA to grow much faster than a taxable account.
A Roth IRA is a retirement savings account that allows your money to grow tax-free. You fund a Roth with after-tax dollars, meaning you've already paid taxes on the money you put into it. In return for no a up-front tax break, your money grows and grows tax free, and when you withdraw at retirement, you pay no taxes.
A SEP IRA is a type of traditional IRA for self-employed individuals or small business owners. SEP stands for Simplified Employee Pension. Any business owner with one or more employees, or anyone with freelance income, can open a SEP IRA. Contributions, which are tax-deductible for the business or individual, go into a traditional IRA held in the employee's name. Employees of the business cannot contribute - the employer does. Like a traditional IRA, the money in a SEP IRA is not taxable until withdrawal.
