<<Well, in that tax bracket, it's likely that you can deduct your IRA contributions, so I'd go with the regular IRA for a while.>>Maybe, maybe not. Probably not.The point has been made (www.ricedelman.com and www.fairmark.com) that a Roth is *bigger* than a regular IRA.When you put $2000 in a regular, it's $2000.When you put $2000 in a Roth, it's equivalent to putting in $2777 (28% bracket) or $2353 (15% bracket).In both cases, you have $2000 to invest. But when you withdraw the money, some (28%) of the withdrawal from the ordinary IRA gets siphoned off to taxes, but none of the ROTH withdrawal does.In effect, you can put a larger amount of money into a ROTH than a regular IRA.Ray
