Deferred Account

An annuity or other investment vehicle in which one does not pay taxes on the contributions until after withdrawal. Common examples of deferred accounts are a 401(k) and a traditional IRA. Generally speaking, one places a portion of his/her pre-tax income into a deferred account and allows it to be invested. Taxation is deferred until withdrawal from the account, generally after retirement.
