If the taxpayer has a traditional IRA, converting some/all of it to a Roth IRA may actually be a better way to use the tax benefit, since long term capital gains are (currently) taxed at lower rates than the ordinary income rates that IRA conversions are taxed at.I'm not so sure? Its my understanding that a TIRA to Roth conversion amount will be taxed as ordinary income and will not fall into the LTCG "bucket". Therefore, the conversion amount will not apply to the 0% LTGC calculation. Pro's ~ any comments?RichArizona
