setwil writes (in part):I am getting a non-deductible IRA for 1999 because I maxed out my company's 401K plan.I reply:Phil hinted at this, but I'll say it outright. If you are eligible for a Roth IRA, that is what you should contribute to. Choosing a Roth IRA over a non-deductible traditional IRA is one of the few no-brainers in tax law, because qualified earnings from a Roth are never taxed, whereas qualified earnings from even a non-deductible traditional IRA are taxed as ordinary income. --Bob
