Subject:  Pixy's 1/9 Conversion to a Roth. Date:  1/9/2001  6:13 PM
Author:  Meadogal Number:  27058 of 96350

I am a big fan of Motley Fool and always enjoy Pixies
articles. However on this particular article it does
nothing for someone over 59 1/2. I want to convert my
IRA to a Roth, especially since the market has been so
unstable that the taxes to convert would be considerably less. If I don't I will have to take it in 4 yrs. At this point I won't be needing to use it.
Would that be a good move? I am in the 15% bracket and have not contributed to it for 6 yrs..
