I'm interested in starting my 401(k) retirement planning. I'd like to make it as pain-free as possible, since my income is limited.

Since I won't be taxed on the money deferred for this plan, I'm wondering what the tax brackets are [that is, the rate at which my income is taxed].

I earn $35,000 yearly. I'm trying to determine if I can contribute enough $$$ to bring myself to a lower tax bracket, so that the tax difference will help make up for the loss of spendable income.

Does anyone have a table of income/tax rates, or suggestions for middle income retirement savings plans?

Much thanks in advance...
