Yes, you can roll a regular IRA into a Roth IRA. You pay income tax on the amount you withdraw from the regular IRA, but do not have to pay a penalty for early withdrawal if y…ou roll the money directly into the Roth IRA.
The main difference is when you pay income taxes on the money you put in the plans. With a traditional IRA, you pay the taxes on the back end - that is, when you wit…hdraw the money in retirement. But, in some cases, you may escape taxes on the front end - when you put the money into the account. With a Roth IRA, it's the exact opposite. You pay the taxes on the front end, but there are no taxes on the back end. And remember, in both traditional and Roth IRAs, your money grows tax free while it's in the account. There are other differences too. While almost anyone with earned income can contribute to a traditional IRA, there areincome limits for contributing to a Roth IRA. So not everyone can take advantage of them. Roth IRAs are more flexible if you need to withdraw some of the money early. With a Roth IRA, you can leave the money in for as long as you want, letting it grow and grow as you get older and older. With a traditional IRA, by contrast, you must start withdrawing the money by the time you reach age 70½.
