Hello Pixy

You wrote : In the 401k, you put in $2K total, let it compound for 20 years at 10% for 20 years, and then take it out to be taxed at 28%, the same as your marginal tax rate today. You will net $82,476. formula tells me you would net $90,724, because you're still earning 10% on the final year. When I do a check by running a spreadsheet, I get the same future value. Am I missing something or are we using different formulas ?
