Types of IRAs

There are three types of IRA accounts offered by Tastyworks: Traditional, Roth, and SEP IRAs. The Traditional IRA is the most common and is where you make pre-tax contributions so that you lower your current taxable income while also saving for your retirement. Once you retire and withdraw from your Traditional IRA you will owe taxes on both your contributions and capital gains.

If you open a Tastyworks Roth IRA your contributions are made from after-tax income so that there are no tax savings up front. But once you reach retirement and withdraw from your Roth IRA you won’t owe any taxes, not even on the capital gains. So while a Traditional IRA offers tax savings right now, a Roth offers them later in life.

Lastly, the SEP IRA is functionally similar to the Traditional IRA in that contributions are made with pre-tax income and you will face taxes once you withdraw your money in retirement. The SEP IRA is geared specifically towards self-employed individuals and employees of small businesses that are not large enough to offer an employer-sponsored retirement plan.

TastyWorks IRA Account Fees

Some brokers will charge you an account setup or transfer fee for opening an IRA, but Tastyworks does not. On the flip side, they will charge you a $60 closing fee when/if you close your IRA. Tastyworks does not charge any annual maintenance fees for having an IRA, nor do they have any minimum balance requirements to maintain.

Tastyworks IRA Trading Fees

When it comes to trading in your Tastyworks IRA, their commissions generally compare favorably to other brokers, especially if you plan to use options. Buying stocks or ETFs will cost you a flat $5 and selling these shares is commission-free. Opening an options position will cost you $1 per contract ($10 maximum), and similar to ETFs, these positions are free to close out. However, if you ever wanted to exercise an option, this will cost you a flat $5. Futures trades are $1.25 per contract on both the opening and closing trades.

TastyWorks IRA Fees Summary

Opening an IRA account with Tastyworks has a number of positives for those who are already familiar with and like the Tasty brand. Their commission schedule and account fee structure is fairly attractive, and we like that it’s free to close out most trades as psychologically, it can be hard enough to sell losing positions even without being faced with a commission. One thing that retirement planners might not like about a Tastyworks IRA is their lack of mutual funds.
