    IRA/Keogh accounts

    Special accounts that allow income taxes on funds deposited into the plan to be deferred until money is withdrawn. These plans are subject to frequent changes in law with respect to the deductibility of contributions. Withdrawals of tax-deferred contributions are taxed as income, including the capital gains from such accounts.
