"Which is precisely the same as saying an annual contribution to a Roth IRA is taxed upfront while that in a decutible traditional IRA is taxed at withdrawal. Imho I think you're parsing your words too closely. I suspicion not many would misunderstand what's being said here."

To the contrary, I have read numerous posts with confusion about how this tax is paid on the Roth contribution, which is precisely why I suggested one should be careful how they state it.
