The IRS has now issued guidelines to make this easier. The new rules clarify that the amounts eligible to be rolled over include employee salary deferrals, employer matching and nonelective 'pay-ins. All these converted funds and any later earnings in the Roth remain subject to the plan's distribution rules. Of course, the plans must be amended to conform to the new guidelines. The employee making such a rollover is responsible for the tax consequences and may need to increase withholding or make estimated tax payments to avoid an underpayment penalty. The five-taxable-year period of participation that makes the Roth funds tax-free begins on the first day of the first taxable year the employee makes the in-plan Roth rollover. Sounds complicated, but we can make it easier. See the know- how folks at John A. Kimmel, CPA Bequette & Kimmel Accountancy Corporation C PA 307W.
