Defined contribution retirement plans like IRAs are tax-efficient due to the deduction for contributions. They are also tax-efficient due to their tax-free growth. They are not so tax-efficient during retirement years due to taxable required minimum distributions (RMDs). They are also not so hot when you die due to the income tax on the proceeds. (Although an IRA can pass income tax free to heirs using the "stretch" option, it is then fully taxable to the heirs as they make their RMDs.)
