    sorry to hear that but if that's true, I won't insult your intelligence but that's why a wise investor diversifies - still not sure I believe your comment since most comments on these boards are useless

    Also, never consider the tax consequences when selling investments. If you think they'll continue to grow, who ever complained of paying taxes when you're making money? I'll pay taxes any day since it means I'm making money. See the accountant for the write-offs but don't overthink capital gains and miss out on potential continued growth if matches your risk tolerance and income needs. Good luck & I hope this helps.

    You can't avoid the tax on the conversion in any year so taxes are due come tax season in 2015 on 2014 conversion amounts. Tax brackets need to be considered so you don't enter the next tax bracket. Not knowing your state laws, in most cases you can convert as much as you like within certain income limits, which most of us qualify for, but it's the cash contributions that are limited & often not allowed in retirement years unless working. Most people convert as much as they can in their tax bracket if they're smart & can afford to do it. The Roth earnings will be tax-free but only if the account is at least 5 years old so until then you would have to take money from your joint Roth account mentioned.

    A Roth usually makes sense when you expect to be in a higher tax bracket come retirement but without having a crystal ball, it would be wise to have a combination of IRA/Roth IRA to give yourself options in the future based on income needs and even tax law changes, etc. It really doesn't matter which account you take Roth earnings out of once they're both at least 5 years old. I do this for a living so what I mentioned applies in the average situation but you will have to check your state/federal guidelines as they apply. Always consult the advice of an accountant to get specific tax information. Never trust the opinion of a so-called expert or your neighbor. Go right to the expert for the facts.
