In my traditional IRA I have some contributions which were non-deductible. Can I convert those funds over to my Roth IRA without tax consequences or is there an income limitation for doing that? My wife and I file jointly and are under the income limitations for contributing to a Roth, but I thought I heard somewhere that the income limitation for doing a conversion was lower than the contribution limitation.
