Following computer system issues that appeared early yesterday morning, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has announced that taxpayers will have an additional day to file and pay their taxes. The new deadline is today, April 18, at midnight.
Tax-advantaged retirement plans like IRAs allow your money to grow tax-deferred — or, in the case of Roth accounts, tax-free. The deadline for 2017 contributions is April 17, 2018. Deductible contributions will lower your 2017 tax bill, but even nondeductible contributions can be beneficial.
