Subject:  Do I Need to Recharacterize My Roth IRA? Date:  3/17/2001  1:44 PM
Author:  SM01 Number:  28481 of 75339

My wife converted her traditional IRA into a Roth IRA early in 2000 (AGI<100K). Later that year, we got married and will be filing jointly. Our adjusted gross income for 2000 is now greater than 100K. Does this mean we will have to recharacterize the Roth back to a traditional IRA. Or...can we avoid this since my wife converted BEFORE getting married? Thanks!
