To Roth or Not to Roth: Analyzing the Conversion Opportunity for 2010 and Beyond

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Beginning in 2010, all taxpayers will be able to convert their existing Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA) to Roth IRAs, without regard to their level of income or marital status. In effect, taxpayers will be able to lock in current income tax rates on account values that have been eroded by recent investment market declines. This article analyzes who should take advantage of this opportunity, using the barest minimum of arithmetic (and no calculus).
