Be careful using the marginal rate.A couple earning $50,000 is in the 28%tax bracket but pays about $5,800 intax. An average tax rate of only 12%.If an IRA is your only taxable incomeyou get the tax deduction at themarginal rate, 28%, but pay the average rate, 12%, on withdrawals.The only case I've seen where a ROTHis a no-brainer is estate planning.For retirement planning ROTH v. Regularmakes my brain hurt.
