Disclosure: If converting a Traditional IRA to a Roth IRA, you will owe ordinary income taxes on any previously deducted Traditional IRA contributions and on all earnings. A conversion may place you in a higher tax bracket than you are now. Because Roth IRA conversions may not be appropriate for all investors and individual situations vary, we suggest you discuss tax issues with a qualified tax advisor.
