Your reply supports my original post.

It does no such thing.

My original point was that the move to a different state should not have any effect on whether you invest in a roth or trad ira.

Then your original point is wrong. The presence/absence of state income tax makes a huge difference in determining which type of IRA/401k is the best place for one's money...

The fact that I mentioned sales tax doesn't mean I think it should effect a decision, just the opposite.

This is beyond asinine. Pretty much the only thing you mentioned in your original post is sales tax and it was in regards to a conversation about whether someone should choose a Roth or a Traditional. If you don't think sales tax should play a role in the decision, why would you make that the full thrust of your post?

It makes a bigger difference than you think per capita

You have no idea what I think on this issue.

but the discussion is surely not necessary for this question.

Then why did you raise it?
