<< "What prevents someone from rolling one's 401k into a Roth IRA every year?"

Taxes. Wby would you want to do this?

Thinking paying annual taxes on retirement kind of nullifies the benefits of tax deferred accounts...

However . . . . one would then have MORE money invested and not just on a "tax deferred basis", but on a tax FREE basis. It may be the usual issue of whether or not one is going to be in a higher or lower tax bracket when one retires and uses the money from that account.
