Subject:  Another IRA Question Date:  1/30/2011  8:15 PM
Author:  canuck104 Number:  68351 of 98549

Building on the post from the person seeking info on the Roth, I seek guidance from Fooldom:

Since I exceed the income requirements for contributing to a Roth IRA, can I open a non-deductible traditional IRA, fund it with last year's max contribution and this year's contribution, and then within a day or two (essentially no earnings) do a conversion to a Roth?

If I *CAN* do it this year, is this the only year I can do it -i.e. does the loophole expire this year/next year?

Any and all help/insight appreciated!
