I looked here for an answer but couldn't find it. Hoping this has a simple answer. Thanks!

I'm 72 and retired. I took my 2021 RMD on April 16: net $23,174 after required deduction of $1,029 for state taxes. (We have a refund due for 2020 federal taxes and have applied it to 2021 taxes.) I deposited the net RMD into my regular (taxable) Schwab account. We won't need the money this year, and so it now occurs to me: could I instead do a conversion of this RMD money into my Roth IRA account, since I'll be paying federal tax on it this year regardless?
