Yes, thanks, that's why I opened the Roth. I figure I can't do anything about the TSP's tax consequences after I retire, so I'll leave that as the taxable account (what choice do I have?), but when I get to retirement age, I'll sell my (hopefully!) well appreciated, 100-bagger, Hidden Gem stocks and put the $$$ into cash yielding equities.

I'm not sure exactly what my retirement tax status will be. I know that sounds weird, but I work in a state (which shall remain nameless, but it's OREGON!) with a high income tax (currently 9% but I usually claim less than that due to taking sick and vacation days in my home state which has no income tax), but I live in Washington, so I am not sure if my pension, TSP, or even social security, will be subject to Oregon income taxes after I retire. I've been told it is all taxed by Oregon since the earnings it's all based on were earned in Oregon, but I don't know that for a fact. Something I will have to nail down........

Thanks again!
