The earnings accumulate tax deferred until withdrawn, and then the entire withdrawal is taxed as ordinary income. Individuals not eligible to make deductible contributions may make nondeductible contributions, the earnings on which would be tax deferred.

Employees may allocate a portion of their salaries into this plan, and contributions are excluded from their income for tax purposes (with limitations).
