Nondeductible contribution

Nondeductible contribution

A contribution to either a traditional IRA or Roth IRA. Income tax is due on the contribution in the tax year for which the contribution is made.

Nondeductible Contribution

A contribution to a retirement plan where the amount is taxable. For example, if one makes $2,000 in nondeductible contributions, one must still pay taxes on that $2,000 even though it was placed in a retirement plan. Nonqualifying plans usually have nondeductible contributions. Likewise, a Roth IRA takes nondeductible contributions, but this is because withdrawals following retirement are tax free.
