<<But I'm just not a big proponent of paying real tax dollars today, for the hope and promise that I'll get tax free dollars in the future.>>
I'm suspecting I might be in the exception area. My wife and I don't plan to convert our IRAs, and earn too much to make tax-free regular IRA contributions. So, we're looking at opening Roth IRAs.
I understand that with conversions, if you later determine that your taxable income is too high, you can back them out. How about for _new_ contributions? We're close enough to the earning limits for Roth IRA contributions that if we were to receive good bonuses, it could push us over the top. Initially, I figured we could just punt and contribute once the year was behind us, but the recent stock market declines have me rethinking that option.
