Sorry if this has been discussed many times before, when I saw the previous post's title about a conversion it suddenly occurred to me that I rolled the balance of a regular IRA into an existing Roth account about a year ago and now I may have a problem. The amounts in both accounts were small (a couple thousand in each) and I just wanted to simplify tracking my portfolio. But when I filed my taxes (electronically via H&R Block software) a couple of months ago, my investment earnings pushed me over the limit for contributing to a Roth IRA for 2010, so I couldn't make a contribution (my salary left me in the range of income where the limit gets phased out, so I needed to wait until I filed before knowing if I could contribute this year). Is a conversion subject to those same income limits? I'm pretty sure that I included the additional taxes to cover the conversion in my calculations and the software didn't seem to complain, so am I okay?Thanks in advance for pointing me to the appropriate IRS documentation.Bill
