If your son qualifies to deduct his contribution to a regular IRA he may be able to claim a $2,000 deduction in 1998, then take the rollover income over a period of four years. I'm not absolutely positive the IRS will permit this, but my discussions with people involved in developing the technical corrections act and guidance on the Roth IRA indicate that it may work this way.

This is an outstanding stategy if it can work. Do you have any references to written authority on this.
