Hi Everyone! I am a new fool so pardon any foolish things I ask, here goes. I am lucky enough to
have a very large amount saved up in my 401K and realize I can transfer over to a traditional IRA
and THEN convert to a Roth IRA. My problem is all the software I've seen out there converts
ALL of the IRA over as a whole and I haven't seen any that let you convert some over each year
when you pay the tax in a lower bracket. If I convert as a whole I get in a rediculous bracket and
wouldn't have that much cash to pay it anyway. I'm looking for a software which will allow me to make a series and annual conversions so that I can stay in the lower tax conversion brakets and thereby minimize my taxes and maximize my net. I'm ready to write my own spreadsheet but would
appreciate anyone who knows of any cheap software. The one I did see wanted about $400 and I'm
not even sure it would do what I want. HELP!!!!!!!
