Make the IRA contributions accurate
Correct your IRA contributions. There is a particular cap number to your respective IRAs. You will need to make this amount right in time in order to avoid paying taxes for the exceeded amount and the interest creates by the surplus amount. As a result, remember to fix this problem before you are charged with a penalty that is too much for you to pay.
Furthermore, you can use the IRA account without paying any penalties. It can be used to pay the tuition fee for a college or a university program. It is also justified to buy a house for the very first time. Employees who are near retirement and have a functional retirement plan can also put their money from IRA account to the other one without paying any taxes.

Early distribution penalty is when you are younger than 59 and a half years old. In this case, you will be charged tax for each IRA transaction. Nevertheless, there are a few exemptions who don’t have to pay the tax, but still they will have to notify the IRA trustee or custodian. If you do not report this to the authorities, you will have to pay additional taxes.

Exceeding maximum contributions
There is also penalty for excess contributions. Each year, there is a set amount on your IRA contributions. This is to ensure that people do not go around the rules and misuse the tax-saving methods of the IRA. The excess amount that is surplus is known as the excess contribution. Excess contribution and the interest on it should be removed from the account to avoid facing penalties.
