As Monday, April 18 quickly approaches – the imminent tax day – you may be considering some wealth management options to help you manage your assets with minimum taxation. If you’re nearing retirement age, or recently retired, you may consider converting your employer-paid retirement fund to a Roth IRA. Or perhaps you have been saving additional money in a private IRA, which you may also want to convert to avoid the dreaded Required Minimum Distributions that will kick in at the age of 71.
Luckily, you still have the option to convert your taxable retirement savings that you’ve worked so hard for into a tax-free Roth IRA account. Thankfully, at the end of 2021, the federal government did not move forward with its initiative to close the beneficial ability to convert a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA. Now, you are still being afforded the right to keep your hard-earned money and reduce the taxes your heirs will need to pay upon distribution.
Read more to learn about what happened in 2021, how it will impact your taxes, and why it is so important to take advantage of the services provided by Mid Atlantic Financial and Roth Right to prepare for the future and grow your wealth.
The “Build Back Better” legislation endorsed by President Biden’s administration is primarily focused on infrastructure, but it also includes provisions that would serve to eliminate the backdoor Roth IRA loophole currently in existence.
This legislation would, in effect, prohibit the conversion of after-tax money from a traditional IRA or eligible 401(k) plan to a Roth IRA. Furthermore, for taxpayers with incomes higher than $400,000 for individuals, $425,000 for heads of household or $450,000 for joint filers, this same legislation would prevent any conversion of pre-tax money from a traditional IRA or eligible401(k) to a Roth IRA.
In 2021, the “Build Back Better” legislation passed the House of Representatives, although it was derailed in the Senate and is currently being reworked. While the bill is likely to make its way back through Congress, there’s no telling at this time what the future of the Roth IRA conversion strategy will be.

It’s not for everyone. Converting to a Roth IRA is a complex process that must be implemented with the deepest attention to detail. This strategy applies to high-income earners, and high net-worth individuals, who will be deeply taxed once their Required Minimum Distributions start to kick in at the age of 71.
Below are a few questions that interested candidates should ask themselves before considering this strategy:
Do I need access to my converted funds immediately or can I wait at least five years?
If I convert, do I have the available liquidity to cover the tax that will be imposed during the first year?
After age 71, am I prepared to begin making the distributions on my IRA that are required by the government? And paying taxes on that income each year?
Do I want to find out how I can effectively save thousands, if not millions, of dollars by converting to a Roth IRA now?
