<<Unlike other retirement plans, a SEP-IRA can be rolled directly into a
Roth IRA. When you leave your job, then, that SEP-IRA can be transferred
into a traditional or a Roth IRA at your discretion>>


Pixy:
Thanks so much for the help...the one question I still have is: When I transfer the SEP IRA to a Roth, am I correct in assuming that I will be responsible for any taxes that I avoided while those funds were held in the traditional SEP IRA (i.e. would I treat this transfer the same as converting a trad. IRA to a Roth)?

Thanks again,
Jack
