It seems to me that one likely way to tax a Roth account is if Congress establishes a Value Added Tax. In that way when the proceeds of a Roth account are spent they will be taxed again. They get us "coming" (when we contribute pre-taxed assests to the Roth) and "going" (when we spend the proceeds taken out of the Roth). Tom
