[[the conversion rules on the roth ira limit participation in 1998 if the married couple has an income > 100000. If I can postpone some of the 1998 income into 1999, (forcing 1998 income < 100000) will it now make the roth conversion eligible? ]]Yup...as long as your AGI is less than $100k in the year of conversion, you're good to go.[[also, considering that 1998 is a 'special' year for the conversion to be spread over the next four years, would all four years have to remain < 100000?]]Nope. Once you meet the "under $100k" rules for the year of conversion, all other bets are off, and future income becomes immaterial (unless, of couse, you want to make a NEW conversion in that future year...then the $100k rule would come back into play).TMF TaxesRoy
