Yes, this is the year that everyone can convert their Individual Retirement Accounts into a Roth IRA, no matter how much they earn. But would it be advantageous to you? The big issue is the income tax due on the original IRA, which can be considerable. If you must pay the taxes from the IRA itself, you're giving up the fimve tax-tree earnings on that amount and may be liable tbr penalties on it. If you can pay those taxes from other funds, though, the IRA stash can continue earning, totally tax-tree. A plus tbr highZincome folk: you need not distribute any of it during your lifetime, uifless you want to. Also, paying current taxes on the money now reduces estate tax down the line. There are downsides, though. A conversion can throw you into a higher tax bracket, lt's not advisable for older people if they need to live on their retirement income or plan to donate it to a charity. And there are rules on pre-tax and after-tax 1RAs. Smart move: discuss your options with a tax professional. Get the knowledgeable help you need at: 307 W.
