Is a transfer of all or part of the assets in an existing Roth IRA to another one taxable? I assume no. For example, if a guy currently has an IRA invested in an index fund but then decides to open a discount brokerage Roth IRA to start investing "a la Foolish Four with some of the assets in the current IRA, will there be any tax consequences to this? Any comments welcome.

Greetings, Alteno, and welcome. You asked:

A direct transfer of assets from one Roth to another Roth has no tax impact. A direct transfer from a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA does. A transfer from a Roth IRA to a traditional IRA is not allowed at all except as a recharacterization of Roth annual contributions or conversions under strict guidelines.
