Roth Conversion in new tax bill question
« on: December 20, 2017, 02:44:49 PM »
Probably a stupid question, sorry ahead of time if so :).

So I can't tell is this article just saying that Trad/Roth cant be reclassified mid year, or is it saying you can no longer do a traditional --> roth conversion? The latter would hurt the ability of early retirees to withdraw funds using methods like roth ladders correct?

my understanding is that trd-> roth conversions are fine.

what was being removed was the strategy of horse racing, and "reclassifying"
