I'm a student w/ about $9,000 in a deductible IRA.
My cost basis was $6,000. I've also made around $20K this year.
When I roll over into the Roth IRA, all gains are taxed as regular income, correct?
Thus, for the 1998 tax year I'll have extra "income" of $9,000, is this correct?
Well, 15 or 28% now is a lot better than 30-40% in
It's a good thing I'm not graduating until Dec. 1998.
Otherwise I'd already be in a much higher tax
