Any thoughts on this issue?
As a grad student, I have several more years of making very little money ahead of me. Therefore,
I feel that I am in probably the lowest tax bracket I will ever be in. Does it then make sense to max
any taxable contributions (ie my ROTH IRA) and not worry about maxing out a tax deferred account?

economical than getting taxed on the (hopefully) huge sum of a tax deferred account later when I make
Can anyone tell me if I am thinking about this right? ... thanks for previous replies...
