Yet another reason to go "Roth"!

Roth owner

That won't get you out of a potential UBTI tax, as the article mentioned. UBTI applies to Roths, Coverdells, and any other "exempt" organization, including charities and foundations, as well as charitable remainder trusts.

Actually, except for the provisions in the law specifically applicable to Roth IRAs, all the rules applicable to traditional IRAs also apply to Roths.

(Also a Roth owner-and glad I converted in '98)
