There's a big deadline coming this Thursday. Tax returns are due, and you know plenty of people are scrambling to get their taxes done. What's more, if you're looking to save on your taxes by opening an IRA, you have to get your money into an account by April 15.
We all know that figuring out how to save the most you can on your taxes isn't always as simple as it should be. And when it comes to IRAs, there are lots of issues you have to consider. Which type of IRA can you open, and which is best for you? Should you roll over an old 401(k) to an IRA? And what about converting existing accounts to Roth IRAs?
