What is the difference between a Traditional IRA and Roth IRA?

Traditional IRA contributions “may” be tax deductible; taxes are paid when the member takes distributions. They will report any distributions when they file their income tax return.

Roth IRA contributions are never tax deductible, dividends on Roth IRA contributions are not taxed if they are distributed after age 59 ½.
