5:40 am
now, any additional amounts above that $2,400 threshold would be treated as a roth-like contribution meaning it would be taxed today, invested in a retirement account, and it would grow without taxation and then upon withdrawal, no tax would be due. >> all right. jill, so why would republicans want to change this? >> reporter: well, it is estimated that the retirement plan deduction costs the united states government about $1.3 trillion over 10 years. and that's really important because the new tax cut plan is scored over the next 10 years, not decades in the future. so this potential change would raise revenue for the government today instead of decades in the future. now, of course, for us, the taxpayers, the result is the exact opposite. we would lose the tax deduction on our 401(k)s today, but we would not have to pay taxes on the money that we contribute or
