    IS IT MORE FINANCIALLY SMART TO USE YOUR OWN MONEY (FROM A 457) AND TAKE THE TAX HIT OR BORROW THE MONEY FROM A FINANCIAL INSTITUTION TO INVEST (RENTAL PROPERTY)

  • Wolf Stone

    Interesting points of view..from the various bloggers you’ve linked to!! Although i live in Canada and the Roth IRA vs. Tradtional IRA doesnt apply ..we do have something similar called the RRSP (Registered Retirement Savings Plan) !!

    Roth all the way. Pay tax now, no taxes later when I’m filthy rich and the government is raising taxes to pay for all of their wacky plans.
