Badger & Pixl - would both of you please read my inquiry in Retired Fools titled "Converting to Roth IRA", and give me YOUR opinion(s)? I posted that in this down market, it should be a good idea to convert all down-in-value (worth less than original contribution) after-tax IRA's to a Roth IRA with no current tax outlay. I received comment that ALL IRA's would have to be combined, and after-tax and pre-tax proportioned, in converting any amount to Roth. The assumption was that a given IRA did not stand alone for conversion purposes.This seems to relate to your conversation "Combining IRAs". This would seem to be a major discussion point - whether ALL of a person's IRA's (after-tax & pre-tax) have to be lumped together and treated proportionately when amounts are withdrawn and/or converted. Would appreciate any comments.
