In "The Gospel of Roth- The Good News About Roth IRA Conversions ad How They Can Make You Money" by John Bledsoe it clearly states in the book that NO ANALYSIS is needed and that eveyone should convert to a Roth IRA regardless of income. There is NO risk! The IRS is giving us a year to recharacterize or "undo" the conversion. This book gives the ins and outs for Roth IRAS! It really helped answer all my questions like payday loans no credit check helped cover all my unexpected expenses.
