<<The Strong Family of mutual Funds has a calculator functionality that will help you look at the issue of whether you want a traditional IRA or a Roth IRA.

See the URL http://www.strong-funds.com/strong/Retirement/iraroth.htm>>

Thanks for the information, Eric. Much appreciated.

<<PS, for TMFTaxes--Strong's literature seems to agree with TRPrice's in that Strong also seems to say that the rollover amount into a Roth does not count against AGI in the testing of the eligibility of the rollover.>>

Yup. I believe that this has now become the universal view. And I've jumped on the bandwagon. Thanks again for the update, Eric.
