I have a SAR-SEP plan from my previous job with about $5k. I'm not eligible for the 401k at my current job until Jan. 2000. I will be participating as soon as I am eligible. So far in 1999, I haven't made any deductible contributions. My old plan is very un-Foolish and I just received notice that they are jacking up the fees. I want out. So, I was thinking of rolling my old plan over to an IRA and making the $2000 deductible contribution this year and then rolling over to a Roth IRA, because next year I won't be able to deduct traditional IRA contributions. I realize that I'll have to pay taxes on that rollover. Is that a good strategy or should I leave that money in the traditional IRA and open a new Roth IRA next year? Comments?
