Thanks for the reply. I've been out of town. You are right. I could do it that way. I was going to use a speadsheet since your suggestion works till I hit 70 1/2 and then am forced to take out 401K/Traditional IRA monies at a proportion to life expectency. With a spreadsheet I could determine if I should be converting more to a Roth even though it would kick me into a 28% bracket but avoid the 39% bracket I will hit with my remainder balance being large enough to put me there at 70 1/2. I would just have to use the "present" brackets and adjust it they changed from year to year.
I guess I'm trying to optimize my net holdings and minimize my taxes (but then aren't we all?).
Thanks again.
