Roth IRA Conversions
Beginning in 2010 the previous limitations on individuals with Traditional IRAs or qualified employer sponsored retirement plans, such as 401-Ks and 403-bs, to convert these accounts to Roth IRA are repealed. Furthermore, now is a good time to look at any retirement plans held with previous employers. There are great planning opportunities available in light of recent changes and you may be a good candidate.
If any of the following relate to your current situation or are of interest to you please contact us:
- You would like to reduce your Income Tax Cost.
- You had little, reduced and/or no income in 2009.
- You anticipate having reduced, little or no income in 2010, 2011 or 2012.
- You have 401-K or 403-b plans from previous employers that you have not rolled over to a self directed IRA (Roth or Traditional).
- You are interested in passing significant wealth to heirs while reducing your income and estate tax costs.
- You would like to covert any portion of your Traditional IRAs, SEP IRAs, 401-Ks, 403-bs to a Roth IRA and avoid future tax on distributions.
- Continued tax deferred and/or tax free growth.
If any of these resonate with you and you would like to discuss your options further please call me to schedule a time to meet. We can discuss what options are available to you and what best suits your situation. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
