Today, I’m proud to offer up another guest post at Jeff Rose’ Good Financial Cents.
As my regular readers are aware, I’m a bit cautious about the fanfare surrounding the Roth conversion, the ability to pay the tax on some or all of your IRA now so that you don’t have to pay tax when you retire. Jeff asked if I’d write an article discussing the potential pitfalls of making the conversion and finding out it was a mistake. I jumped at the opportunity, and the result is today’s Unforeseen Consequences of the Roth IRA Conversion. Some of my best work, please visit and let Jeff know what you think.
