| The traditional IRA is an account that allows you to defer taxes on your earning until they are withdrawn.
Also, certain contributions are deductible in the tax year for which they are made.
|| The Roth IRA is an account that features generally tax-free withdrawals for certain distribution reasons
after a five-year holding period. Since Roth IRA contributions are non-deductible and taxed in the year
they are earned, some people benefit more from these accounts than from a traditional IRA.
