I have a question I can"t find addressed. I"m 70 years old and my wife is 58. I must file Minimum Required Distribution next year and am planning on Joint Life Expectanct option using Recalculation Method for me and Minimum Required Distribution for wife.
My question is whether I should consider converting some of my IRA rollover to Roth assuming my tax bracket will remain the same and I can pay the taxes out of current income? How long would it take to make the Roth a good deal assuming an 8% investment?
