there must be a reason for [no conversion of RMD's]..but i don't see it.

The whole point of the RMD is to exhaust retirement accounts during your lifetime. The Roth's lack of such a requirement is unique among retirement accounts.



OK. i thought the point of RMD was to get the taxes from the the IRA sooner .

moving to Roth would still get the tax.
