My CPA informed me that adding to a rollover IRA creates confusion when its time to start making withdrawals during retirement. For withdrawals from 401K, you pay federal tax, but for withdrawals from a regular IRA, you pay federal and state taxes.

This depends on the state you're living in when you take withdrawals. Some give no break, some tax no retirement income, and some, evidently including Mass, are in between.
