I am a 31 year old making over 100,000 a year. My company does not have a 401k. I have no write offs and I need some investment ideas. An IRA only allows you to contribute 2,000 a year, which is not enough and my ROTH IRA has an income eligibility cap. What are some other ideas.

Greetings jjaaxx,
My company does not have a 401k. I have no write offs and I need some investment ideas. An IRA only allows you to contribute 2,000 a year, which is not enough and my ROTH IRA has an income eligibility cap. What are some other ideas.

Perhaps a nice tax efficient index fund would work? See the link below, question #6 should interest you.

Of course all your indexing questions are welcome on the index funds board.

I could give you the donate to me response, but I wont.

Max out your 401k, take a Roth IRA, take one for your spouse if s/he does not work and this applies, as mentioned, tax efficient funds help, real estate.

Long term buy and hold, of a stock paying little
or no dividends. This has advantage even over IRAs
that you are not limited as to how long you can hold, and your heirs get a full step up to value as of the date of your death. Retirement accounts can be a means of postponing taxes; with long term buy and hold, the original income is taxed but there may never be any capital gains tax, and if there is, it can be at a reduced rate.
DELL, MSFT and INTC were great picks 10 years ago.
Now is more difficult but many possibilities come to mind, among them GE, CPN, ORCL.
Best wishes, Chris

1-Long term buy and hold stock.
2-Run an annual hold (plus one day) Workshop Screen and pay the taxes (20%, but you're keeping 80% of gain).
3-Or real estate (another form of long term buy and hold) but the problem is owing taxes on a non-income producing (unless you farm it or such) entity.
