IRA Conversions for 2010
In the year 2010 everyone can convert their traditional IRAs to a Roth IRA - and that's an opportunity that not everyone had in the past.
Under the current tax law for Roth IRA conversions - which was written in 1997 - individuals were permitted to convert a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA.
There were only two stipulations that taxpayers had to worry about - paying taxes on the converted money and an income limit which determined eligibility to convert.
With a traditional IRA money can be placed into the account on a pre-tax (tax deductible)and after-tax basis. That investment is allowed to grow on a tax-deferred
basis until withdrawn in retirement.
If an individual wanted to convert a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA they had to pay federal income taxes on any pre-tax contributions as well as any growth in the investment's value. After all, once converted to a Roth, all of the investment could now be withdrawn on a tax-free basis in retirement.
But back in May of 2006 President Bush signed a $70 billion tax cut provision that changed the eligibility rules for Roth IRA conversions.
Starting in 2010, taxpayers with modified adjusted gross
income of more than $100,000 will be allowed to convert a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA. This change applies to all years beyond 2010 - and the income taxes due on the 2010 conversion can be spread over two years. So the 2010
conversion amount may be included as taxable income in 2011 and 2012 - helping to spread out the tax bite. Conversions in subsequent years are included in income during the tax year in which the conversion is completed.
