What are the tax implications of this? ...It's best to keep things simple. Thus, I suggest you follow your brokers' advice. First do a Traditional IRA (direct) transfer. Your broker should be able to supply you with the necessary forms to fill out and they should also be able to take care of the transfer.After the transfer is complete you may elect to roll the Traditional to a Roth IRA. Yes, there are tax consequences. Others on this board know tons more what these consequences are. Good Luck,TB
