Is there a limit on how much I can move from my IRA to my Roth IRA?

By Denise Appleby AAA
A:



There is no limit on the amount that can be converted from your Traditional IRA to your Roth IRA.

As you may already know, your modified adjusted gross income must be $100,000 or less and your tax filing status cannot be married filing separately, in order for you to be eligible for a Roth IRA conversion.
