Hi:
My accountant says that if someone is in the top federal tax bracket, he sees no reason for taking out a traditional non-deductible IRA because your money is taxed twice (it's after tax money to contribute to one and that same money is taxed when you start to take distributions from it). I always thought that all that was taxed was the amount above what you put into the IRA, or your gains. What's up?
Thank you,
John
