With respect to conversions from traditional IRA to Roth IRA, is there a deadline for the conversion? If I could not convert the traditional IRA's I have so far due to AGI limitation, can I wait until year 2003 when the new AGI limitation of $200,000 (married file jointly) is established to do the conversion? Somehow I had a five year time frame in mind (i.e., I have until year 2002, five years from 1998 to do the conversion, after that I will not be able to convert), but I could not substatiate it from my readings and net search.

I would appreciate very much your answer.
