Subject:  No Deductions - IRA still worth it? Date:  4/6/2000  8:27 PM

Hi there.

I'm maxing out my 401(K), but have too high of an income limit to use a Roth IRA or deduct from a traditional IRA.

I'm curious, should my next retirement investments go into a traditional IRA or regular Taxable investments?

I know a traditional IRA grows with tax free earnings, but If I pay taxes on both contributions and withdrawals on the IRA, would it be better just to invest in taxable mutual funds?

Please advise!
