Then the Roth IRA (assuming you qualify) would be perfect for you. Contributions to the Roth IRA are "after tax dollars" but when properly withdrawn are tax-free. Thus if you pay no income tax, and have earned income you will not pay any taxes EVER on the money put into a Roth IRA.As for puting more money in tax-defered accounts (such as a 401K). It depends on your situation. If it looks like you will have no tax liability for a long time, then it may be to your advantage to keep your funds in taxable accounts. But if you are going to loose the child tax benefits soon, and/or you have a Foolish 401k (or other plan) available, you should look to protecting your money ASAP.jbw
