Fortunately our family Adjusted Gross Income (Salaries and fund distributions) will be a little over $100k this year. Unfortunately, that means no Regular IRA to Roth IRA conversion can be done at THIS time.

I was wondering if during retirement when income can be 'controlled' somewhat about doing conversions then.


1) Should you convert as quickly as possible while still trying to stay in the lowest tax bracket ?

2) If I wait until 70 1/2 and have to take 'mandatory distributions' can those just be rolled into a Roth IRA at that time ?
(Does a Roth conversion count as an actual distribution as far as mandatory distributions go )?
