Greetings, Ed Jackson, and welcome.

<<I recently switched jobs - and moved my existing 401k into a rollover IRA... now I'm considering if I should move that IRA into a roth IRA.

My concern is that I now make over the AGI limit - whereas when I put the money into the original 401k - I did not. Can I move that money from the rollover IRA into a roth IRA and pay taxes on it for the next 4 years? (and then never pay taxes on it again?)>>

If your modified Adjusted Gross Income is over $100K, you may NOT transfer your existing traditional IRA to a Roth IRA. The fact that your AGI was less in prior years has no bearing on your ability to now transfer traditional IRA money to a Roth. All that counts is your AGI in the year you want to do the transfer.
