Taxes are the lowest they've been in 50 years. They won't go anywhere but up. Marry that to inflation devaluing the dollar and taxes are going to be a real issue in the future. we can't keep doing the no-tax thing and deficit-spend thing forever.I'm only 40-something and I'm already above these numbers in my regular IRA. I've been maxing it out for 20 years and making DH do the same. We're savers.OTOH, my wife and I pay AMT (ie defer taxes above 25%) every year and our expenses are far below our income. As a result, we will likely have a decade or two of IRA withdrawals at well under the 25% rate in retirement.Converting to a Roth makes little sense for us.-murray
