Roth or Trad 401K? $210K in yearly household income + 10% bonus (just wife and I, both 32y.o.). Take home pay is about $140K - includes 401K contributions and health benefits. Can't decide if Roth makes sense as I don't anticipate our retirement income will exceed current spending levels. I get the appeal of tax free withdrawals but at the expense of paying more up front. Any advice?
