Well, nowhere on the internet am I finding what I think is the correct information about when federal taxes are really due for a Roth conversion: All I see is that the tax on converting from a regular IRA to a Roth on 12/31/99 and payable over the next four years is due by April 15. BUT, when you take a look at that tax penalty if you have not had enough tax withheld to at least meet or exceed the last year's tax due you are okay for April 15, 1999, but not the next year if you don't pay either estimated tax or have it withheld in 1999! Am I right or not?
