Since I am planning on passing on my Roth to my son anyway (I am 52, he is 14), is there some way of "gifting" all or a portion of my IRA to him now, paying the tax for conversion to Roth at his lower tax rate, since I would be custodian under the uniform gift to minors act, and control the account until he is 21 (or later?). His tax rate would be substantially less than mine now (15% vs 31%), since he is a student. This would, of course, have the effect of setting up a Roth for him now, with substantially more money than the $2000 that is allowed yearly. Thanks.
