Hi -- Thanks, as ever, for all your attentive responses here. I'm about to convert my regular IRA to a Roth (I'm able to pay the conversion taxes from other assets) and just want to know how the actual date of the conversion is figured. Could I control it by the date I put on the forms? The reason I'm asking, of course, is that my stock-invested IRA is worth less while the market is down, so it's to my advantage to have its value counted on a date when its investments are "pressured." Can you tell me what date the IRS will take as the date of assessment of the regular IRA's value?
