Greetings, Heater013, and welcome. You asked:

I am trying to help my parents evaluate whether or not they should convert their IRA to a Roth. I am 24, and I know that the Roth really benfits someone in my position, but I'm trying to find the point when having the tax break outweighs the benfits of the Roth. If anyone knows a good web address that can do this, or just has any comments for me, I would appreciate the help. Fool On!!!

I haven't seen many cases where a Roth conversion is a better deal for most folks, but who knows? For some ideas on how to approach this issue see my analysis in this folder at http://boards.fool.com/Registered/Message.asp?id=1040013000441002&sort=postdate It will give you some food for thought and items your folks need to consider.

Regards…………Pixy
