Fred and Barney were best friends and planning on retiring at the same time in 20 years when they reached age 60. They both received a bonus of $5,500 and wanted to put it back and grow a nest egg for retirement. Fred wanted to put his money into his traditional retirement plan and was excited that he would not have to pay taxes on his money for that year. Barney, on the other hand, decided to go ahead and pay Uncle Sam now and take the tax-free money at retirement. After 20 years had passed, Barney came out on top because all the growth in his ROTH retirement account was tax-free and ultimately payed less taxes then Fred.
