If I contributed $6,000 to each of my two Roth IRA accounts, will I owe a penalty?
Yes. You’re limited to total Roth IRA contributions for the year that are the lesser of:
- 100% of your compensation
- $6,000 to $7,000 if age 50 or older. If you contribute more than the amount you’re allowed, you’ll pay a 6% excise tax.
To avoid the 6% excise tax, contact your IRA plan administrator to request either of these:
- Redesignate the excess IRA contributions to the 2022 tax year. You can only do this if you make the contribution after year-end and before the due date of the return.
- Withdraw the excess contributions and their earnings. You must do either by your return’s due date.
