The state you live in sometimes gives you a tax credit. Choose that first. After that look at expense.

I used the Fidelity one that’s their National Plan, mostly because the growth on their funds and fees outweigh the tax deduction savings from Ohio - I would save around $200/year on taxes, but the fees and lower returns eat that up.

I’m looking for assistance on building your own portfolio in my traditional 401K. I’ve been reading that it’s important to choose funds with low expense ratios.

Maybe off-topic, but I’ve got a question related to taxes and withholding. 2020 was the first year that both me and my wife made full salaries in our high-paying jobs (she’s a pharmacist, I’m in consulting). We don’t do anything out of the ordinary to reduce our taxes, we just put ~ 6% each towards our 401k’s. No house or kids so our other deductions are limited. Just started doing taxes and got a shock that we owe big. Any others in this situation? Do you just withhold a ton extra on W4?
