How does my roth distribution affect my tax bracket?
47% of people found this answer helpful

As long as the distribution from the ROTH 401(k) plan is a qualified distribution, it will not be subjected to taxes. In order to be a qualified distribution, it must satisfy two requirements. First, it must be taken after age 59 1/2. Second, it must be taken after a five year period from when you made your first ROTH 401(k) contribution. Keep in mind that the distribution will still be reported to the IRS via form 1099-R even if it is not taxable.

Remember that employer matches are not considered ROTH 401(k) assets and will be subjected to taxes on their withdrawals.
