  •  Was it taxed when it was contributed? (1+ / 0-)

    Traditional IRAs = untaxed contributions, taxed withdrawals.
    Roth IRAs = taxed contributions, untaxed withdrawals.

    IRAs are directly comparable to pension plans.

    If you're asking for both untaxed contributions and untaxed withdrawals, I don't think you're going to get much support.  And obviously, taxing both contributions and withdrawals is a pretty silly system.
