Is it too late for me to convert a rollover IRA at Vanguard to a Roth IRA for the tax year 2001?

I reply:

Alas, yes. The deadline for conversions was December 31. On the other hand, if you made a traditional IRA contribution for 2001, it's not too late to recharacterize that contribution into a Roth IRA. --Bob
