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...

At the bottom of the page, there are links to the standard deduction and tax tables for 1998.
