I am assuming that if I make 0 dollars in 1998, move 100k to a Roth from a traditional, that I will pay 15 percent tax in each of the 4 years, even though year two, threee and or four I may have income that puts me in a 28 percent bracket. What I am getting at is the 15 percent tax rate frozen for 4 years? Also, assuming I will be in the 28 brackett at retirement in 14 years, am I being foolish to do the Roth, considereing that the taxes on the 100k could be growing for 14 years more before the 28 percent tax? Sorry for the winded reply, but I my accountant doesnt have the answers YET to many of my questions.
