    401(k), IRAs, Taxes
Where should someone in a low tax bracket move his 401(k) from a former employer?

Hello - 

    Great thtat you are interested in continuing to contribute to your retirement.

    Your old company 401k should be rolled over into a rollover IRA. This type of rollover will not cause a tax event. If you roll it over to a ROTH IRA, then you will owe taxes. You might be able to contribute to the rollover IRA going forward, but most likely you will be able to contribute to the ROTH IRA. Vanguard is a good place to start. The expense are low and if you use elect online statements then you will not have any account fees.
