I'm planning on moving a stock (GE @ 28) from my taxable account to my Roth.
If I do this would the 30 day "Wash Rule" be in effect?


There was a recent IRS Revenue Ruling which said that wash sale rules do come into play if you sell for a loss in a taxable account and repurchased in an IRA. Someone posted a link on the Tax Strategies board.
