The 28% now is all you ever pay on the Roth while the 15% in the future is on the inital input and ALL the increase. If you have a 12%per year overall growth rate it doesn't take many years before the total dollars are quite a bit more with the 401K. As was pointed out, this is not the correct way to look at it. It's simply stated this way:For a traditional IRA, your cash in hand after taxes can be stated as(Contribution x growth rate) x (1-tax rate)For a Roth IRA, the after tax cash in hand is:(Contribution x (1-tax rate)) x growth rateGiven the same pre tax contribution, growth rate and tax rate, the two equations are equivalent.-murray
