I imagine the answer is no, but...could I convert some Traditional IRA funds to a new Roth IRA account, and put the conversion on our 2013 taxes??

I'm thinking that since IRS allows 2013 contributions up until mid-April, maybe they cut us some tax-planning slack on withdrawals and conversions also..


I looked briefly on the IRS website, and couldn't easily find an answer

You imagine correctly. A conversion from traditional to Roth is counted in the calendar year in which it happens. It's too late to do one for 2013.
