Roth IRA Conversion

The rollover of assets from a SIMPLE plan, traditional IRA, or other retirement savings plan into a Roth IRA. A Roth IRA receives post-tax contributions and gives out tax-free distributions. This is a different structure from most retirement plans; because they are taxed differently, a Roth IRA conversion may be taxable.
