CHARLOTTE, NC / ACCESSWIRE / April 10, 2021 / For some retirement investors, simply thinking about all of the options available can be a headache. Even for the so-called SIMPLE-IRA-the Savings Incentive Match Plan for Employees IRA-it is more complicated than it sounds. That's why American IRA, a Self-Directed IRA administration firm based in Asheville, North Carolina, recently released a post to help investors make sense of the SIMPLE-IRA, and what it means.

The post began by defining the SIMPLE-IRA. "This is essentially a way for you to use your small business…to set up a nice savings incentive plan," according to the post. The article then detailed the various characteristics of the SIMPLE-IRA. For example, in a SIMPLE IRA, employees can make contributions up to an allowable limit, wherein the employer can contribute to the plan and match the contributions dollar-for-dollar.

This makes it possible for even small businesses to create an employee retirement matching plan. The idea is not only will this incentivize individuals to come and work for that business, but it helps small businesses take care of their own.

The post went on to talk about the structure of the SIMPLE-IRA when it comes to taxes. Taxes on contributions to a SIMPLE-IRA are deferred, meaning they are deductible. This means that investor can potentially save money on their tax bill by putting money away into the SIMPLE-IRA.

"The SIMPLE-IRA can sometimes confuse people," said Jim Hitt, CEO of American IRA. "It has a nice and simple-sounding name, but for investors who are new to retirement investing, it's not exactly intuitive. With this post, we hoped to clear the air for business leaders who are looking to create an incentive for their employees to put aside money for retirement."

For more information on how the SIMPLE-IRA works, the post continued to detail who may qualify for such a plan. Those details are available at the American IRA blog, hosted at For more information, interested parties may contact the Self-Directed IRA administration firm at 866-7500-IRA.
