• Dave, If I delay my Roth conversion to 2011, don't I also delay the taxes due? I'm reading the tax is due in 11 and 12, on 2010 conversions. This is contrary to your article.

  • Shade--you are correct--my article does not spell that out. High income earners can convert going forward as it generates quicker recognition of tax revenues for the government. The splitting of tax obligations only applies to 2010. Thanks for the question. Dave

  • I thought a IRA could be converted to a Roth regardless of income in 2010 and beyond. ...meaning 2011 too. A conversion in 2011 would not get the split years tax payment option though.

    Can anyone confirm.?
