Roth vs Traditional Contribution Calculator

Making contributions to your Solo 401k is a great way to grow your retirement nest egg.

The Solo 401k by Nabers Group automatically includes both Roth and traditional 401k accounts. Therefore, you can make both types of contributions to your retirement plan.

Traditional contributions

Traditional 401k contributions are pre-tax, and can be tax-deductible. Some investors choose to make traditional 401k contributions so they can reduce the amount of taxes they will owe. Your contributions grow tax-deferred, but you have to pay taxes on those funds when you make a withdrawal from the plan at a later date.

Roth contributions

Roth contributions are after-tax. They are not tax deductible, but allow your funds to grow tax-free.  The Roth 401k allows you to contribute to your 401(k) account on an after-tax basis – and pay no taxes on qualifying distributions when the money is withdrawn. For some investors, this could prove to be a better option than contributing on a pre-tax basis, where deposits are subject to taxes when the money is withdrawn.
