Hey folks,

I have a quick question -- Is there an income limit on Roth IRA conversions in 2011?

I know it was removed for 2010, but I cannot recall if this is a one-year thing or if it is true for future years as well. If it is still going to be true, then I can contribute to my wife's T-IRA in January and immediately convert to her Roth IRA before it can increase in value...meaning she is effectively making a Roth IRA contribution since she does not have any pre-tax IRA accounts.

Thanks!
