Fidelity IRA and Roth IRA (Posted on 10/24/12 at 7:45 pm)
Been lurking the money board for a while and have a question for y'all. I had two 401ks that got rolled over. One went to a traditional IRA and the other to a Roth IRA I called fidelity at one point and they said to just keep both. What are y'all's opinions on that? TIA.

Run the conversion numbers so that you can make an informed decision regarding tax liability on conversion. Now is a good time to do this because you should know what your income will be for 2012. Keep in mind that you can convert some each year. ie: convert 1/2 before the end of the year and the other 1/2 in January to spread the tax over two years. (don't pay the tax out of the account)
