This is the other side of the Roth IRA discussion.I am working overseas on a 3 year contract & paid by local government. I'm over age 60 years and the majority of my US assets are in roll over IRAs from company pension plan. Questions: Can I contribute to my Roth IRA with my non-us earnings? I thought earned income is earned income, but some fellow expats said no only US income counts. I expect to be under the $70,000 foreign income limit & will file and pay some Federal income tax. This country has no taxes.Can I convert some of my conventional IRAs to Roth while overseas? Probably through a like kind exchange while market is down. I expect to be in a lower tax bracket now that when I return to the US. This looks to be the best stratigy as I will probably not be working in the US.Comments?Thanks, & keep that oil price up!
