Oops- I goofed. 1998 is a special case. If you do convert to a Roth in '98 & then spread income over 4 years as required, then 99/00/01 income is irrelevant. Just make sure your 1998 income (with 1/4 distributions added) will keep you in the desired bracket & you should be OK. (Unless, of course you elect to convert additional $$ in those future years, which would be a horse of a different color). You might want to check Tax Strategies board at TMF for more info/other postings. My apologies for the mix-up. CAS.
