Quick refresher on RSPs

An RSP comes with some solid tax advantages. First, you get to deduct what you contribute from your taxable income that year. And what’s more? You won’t pay tax when you earn interest. You will be taxed when you withdraw at retirement—but by then, you’ll likely be in a lower tax bracket.
