ROTH vs Traditional IRA’s
What’s the Difference?
The ROTH after tax and the Traditional Pre-tax method of saving is almost identical except for one variable, which is a person’s income tax. A person’s income tax rate will be a key factor in deciding which avenue to take, pre-tax or not.
How Are Personal Income Tax Rates Determined?
An income tax rate is based on the amount of taxable income a person brings in. The higher the taxable income, the higher the income tax rate. A person’s filling status, meaning if they have dependents or other deductions, will directly affect the tax bracket a person falls in. More income, or higher wages equals a hirer tax bracket.
