The biggest difference is a Traditional IRA is considered "Pre Tax" dollars and a Roth IRA is considered "After Tax" dollars.

Roth - This type of IRA offers potentially tax-free earnings. The funds you contribute to this type of IRA are considered after-tax dollars and you may get tax-free withdrawals.
