Maybe you're starting your intern year and you're considering investing as one of your steps in that journey. As July approaches, maybe you’re transitioning as a trainee from an institution or to a new job, you might be asking yourself, “Should I be investing in pre-tax vs Roth?” 

It’s a really interesting topic and an important question, especially as interest rates and inflation changes. 

When someone slides that 401k or that 403b form in front of you, it often gives you the option to choose whether you want to invest in a traditional pre-tax method where the money is taken out of your paycheck before it ever gets taxed. Or do you want it to get taxed immediately, and then get invested knowing that it'll never get taxed again in the future? 

As it's been a couple of years since we tackled pre-tax versus Roth on this show, that’s what we’re diving into in this episode. We'll help you figure out the answers to these questions, or at least help you to make a more informed decision.
