I am doing a partial conversion of my traditional IRA to a Roth IRA. I know that I will owe taxes and will use another source (not the traditional IRA) to pay the taxes. One way I am thinking about covering the taxes is to use stock losses (realized in my brokerage account). Is there a calculation to figure out how much of the taxes I will owe for the conversion will be covered by the stock losses from my brokerage account?
