Dear IP.

I can't tell you the magic tax percentage answer, I can only tell you

what I am doing, I am shooting for 1/3 in each basket, tax deferred, tax

free and taxable. At retirement my tax situation and the rates that will

apply may be different than today, and this way I can manage withdrawls

to maximize spendable income. I am leaning slightly more towards Roths

at this point, my projections are actually closer to 30/30/40 which I

guess is a commentary on my own personal beliefs about future tax rates.

Hope this helps JK
