Could I get some help on this rollover from a normal IRA to a Roth IRA issue. I have $40,000 in my current IRA with $10,000 after tax contributions. I am 35 and wondering if it makes sense to roll the entire amount in 1998? Can I roll only the $10,000 after tax contributions into the Roth thereby avoiding a tax hit? Can I pay the taxes with funds other than what is in my IRA thereby preserving the size of the IRA?

Thanks in advance
