I think the tax rate difference is only one of several material differences.

The other differences, which are individually specific, are the impact of distributions boosting income taxes to a higher bracket and Medicare premiums.

Medicare premiums increase by $3,217.20 annually for a MAGI over $160,000 single and twice both premium and income for married. The higher bracket issue is something to take into account when considering paying the taxes now or later.

Of what other material differences are you thinking of?
