Your reply supports my original post. 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. The fact that I mentioned sales tax doesn't mean I think it should effect a decision, just the opposite. I was pointing out that the state is going to get some of your money regardless, no matter the name of the tax. (If a effective tax rate analysis was done, some people would be really surprised.)

Don't tell anyone about my 'gross misuderstanding' of sales taxes, my employer would be mildly alarmed. It makes a bigger difference than you think per capita, but the discussion is surely not necessary for this question. (Its a good discussion for the tax strategies board though.)
