Betterment's IRA specialists can help you open an account in only minutes.
Our IRA transfer process is one of the fastest in the industry.
You know who you are! The tax return remains defiantly unfinished. The IRA remains unfunded. And with the passing of days your dread grows larger and your shame grows deeper.
“Tax day is almost here!” you wail. “What if I don’t max out my IRA in time?… I’m just so busy!”
We hear you! Doing your taxes stinks. Plus you have far better – or more pressing – things to do. We know this.
But… spend a second with the graph below. That’s the difference between maxing out your IRA before April 15 (and doing it every year), and not doing it at all.
That could be half a million of your money, not going to work.
So swat that monkey off your back. Find five minutes in the next ten days. Do your taxes. And fund your IRA, or open a new one.
And if you’re feeling super organized, you can max it out for 2013 early, and increase returns by $705.00.
