This is not specifically about taxes, but I saw many questions in the FAQ about IRA's.My wife and I each have a ROTH IRA along with a traditional IRA which is in my name. I did the calculations and decided to convert our traditional IRA to a ROTH. I converted $5000.00 in 2000. This went into a brokerage account set up as a conversion ROTH IRA. There was a specific application for a conversion IRA. I will convert the last $8000.00 in 2001. My questions are:1) Can I just convert the traditional IRA money into one of our ROTH IRA's or must it go into the "conversion IRA account"?2) Once it is in the "conversion IRA", can I transfer the funds to my wife's or my ROTH IRA? I have reasons for wanting to get this money into my wifes ROTH IRA.Thank You in advance.
