A tax client asked me: “Should I convert my IRA or retirement plan into a Roth IRA? That is a great question! However, as with any tax questions, it is impossible to have a definite answer when deciding whether to convert a traditional IRA or retirement plan into a Roth IRA.
Hello, this is Noel Dalmacio, your ultimate CPA at lowermytaxnow.
You will generally benefit from the Roth IRA conversion if ALL of the following applies to you:
• You don’t need to take withdrawals from your Roth IRA for at least 15 to 20 years;
• Your future tax rate when you take out withdrawals is the same or greater than the rate during the conversion and
• You can pay the tax on the conversion with non-retirement funds
If you meet all the criteria, congratulations! This is one powerful tax strategy that if you apply correctly, will definitely, build you tax-free wealth!
