<< So, my question is: can i take the $10,000 out of my converted Roth and use the money for a down payment on a first home and avoid the 10% early withdraw penalty as well as the tax? >>Yes. You'll be withdrawing only conversion contributions. As you note, you've already paid the tax, and the penalty is waived when the funds are used for a qualifying first-home purchase.As for the "too good to be true" part, remember that you have no way to get this money back into a retirement account. That's the major drawback to using IRA funds to finance your home purchase.TMF ExROPhil Marti
