Hi there!

The day you'll retire, you'll have to pay income tax on the funds of the Traditional 401k contributions (Pre-Tax).

I am thinking to retire outside of the US.
Do I still have to pay the taxes in the US, or will I be taxed from the country I am planning to retire?

I also would like to know, if there might be a difference between US Citizen, and NON US Citizen.
I am not a US citizen, but also a friend of mine who is American would like to know how this works.

Thank you for any little help and info!
Appreciate it!
