Greetings again to you, Pixy!

I really learned a lot from your article and the Fairmark site mentioned in other messages. Thank you very much for all the information and the reply.

I have decided to go with a full conversion to a Roth.
I have already transferred my 401k funds directly to an IRA account at Brown & Co. (BTW, as you probably know, they have $5 market trades. Trades have gone very smoothly on-line, taking only seconds and I have received confirmations promptly. I didn't need any extras and am in this -- obviously -- for the long haul, so decided to go with them... a little info back for others!)

My one remaining question:
with Brown, they have a $25 fee for the IRA to to Roth conversion since I have had the IRA less than 9 months with them. I am wondering how to best pay this. Saw another Fool insisting on a separate check so that funds would not come out of the IRA. How could this impact my tax filing? What are your thoughts?

Best Regards,
-WeezFool

P.S. Again, I really appreciate having all these Foolish resources from you and the entire Foolish community. Great site!
