Traditional 401(K) Plans

These are the most common form of retirement plan, employee contributions are deducted from gross income, meaning the money comes from the employee’s payroll before income taxes have been deducted. As a result, the employee’s taxable income is reduced by the total amount of contributions for the year and can be reported as a tax deduction for that tax year. No taxes are due on the money contributed or the earnings until the employee withdraws the money, usually in retirement.

Roth 401(K) Plans

With a Roth 401(K), contributions are deducted from the employee’s after-tax income, meaning contributions come from the employee’s pay after income taxes have been deducted. As a result, there is no tax deduction in the year of the contribution. When the money is withdrawn during retirement, no additional taxes are due on the employee’s contribution or the investment earnings.

What Is the Main Benefit of a 401(K)?

A 401(K) plan lets you reduce your tax burden while saving for retirement. Not only are the gains tax-free, but it’s also hassle-free since contributions are automatically subtracted from your paycheck. In addition, many employers will match part of their employee’s 401(K) contributions, effectively giving them a free boost to their retirement savings.
