Traditional 401(k) vs Roth 401(k)

Is a Traditional 401(k) or a Roth 401(k) best for you?

Contributions to a Traditional 401(k) plan are made on a pre-tax basis, resulting in a lower tax bill and higher take home pay. Contributions made to a Roth 401(k) are made on an after-tax basis, which means that taxes are paid on the amount contributed in the current year. Each has its own benefits.
