i have both a Roth IRA account at an online broker, and a Traditional IRA (i'd rolled over my 401(K) after leaving my job not quite a year ago) there. my question is, can i somehow get the Traditional IRA stocks into the Roth IRA account - ie can i combine them? or is there some IRS rule that says no? i've tried my darndest to find out, but can't. so i thought some Fools might know the answer.

Greetings doan,

In addition to the article provided by JBKing, I thought you might find this Foolish Tax article helpful, as well:

You can also ask follow up question in the Tax Strategies board.
