Hi all,

I make less than $500 a month, and want to start putting 10% of that into a retirement account. I am wondering if a Roth is a better way to go since I make so little, or is the money I put into the Roth taxed the same as if I was making $50,000 a month?

Would a non-Roth be better?

Thanks for all advice!
