Hi Fools, I appreciate all the ideas and suggestions I have received and I still haven't made up my mind as of yet whether to convert this 401k transfer to a Roth. I am putting all my future 2k per year in my contributory Roth since I don't qualify for a tax deductible Ira. (No brainer, right?) I am nowhere near the 100k limit so that is a non issue. TMFTaxes said to not try and 2nd guess the Congress and I think by keeping both the traditional and Roth that this leaves me more flexibility in the future. Can you convert only a portion of a Traditional Ira? Or does it have to be 100%? The reason I ask this is because I would like to keep both Ira's equally weighted (i.e. approximately the same amount of $$$$'s in each). Probably not possible or even worth the extra paperwork and effort though. Thanks everyone, Bryan
