Backdoor Roth
« on: March 11, 2014, 08:19:58 AM »
I just learned about this in another thread.

http://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/Backdoor_Roth_IRA

Under "Caution":
"If you have any other (non-Roth) IRAs, the taxable portion of any conversion you make is prorated over all your IRAs"

Does anyone know if this applies to a SEP-IRA too?

I have a SEP-IRA and a non-deductible IRA. It would be nice to convert the non-deductible IRA to a Roth, but not if the SEP is taken into account.

Thanks.

That's what I thought. Never mind then. I actually have some serious gains in the non-deductible one so probably not worth it anyway.

Thanks.
