This is my post. I'm single & selfemployed & have just been informed I will start getting some Stocks transfered into my name (to lose the Capitol gains). I have a Traditional IRAs, but no Roths yet.

I'm trying to find out what to do from here on out. The only statement I get get from the IRS's site that touchs on it is, "A SEP-IRA cannot be designed as a Roth IRA. Employer contributions to a SEP-IRA will not affect the amount that an individual can contribute to a Roth IRA". But does say I can rollover? I follow that & lose it.

I'm thinking I can rollover some from the Traditional for the SEP-IRA, then start the Roth on top of that?from here on out.
