What are the tax implication when converting a regular IRA to a Roth IRA?

Converting a traditional IRA to a Roth gives you that future tax-free benefit, but at an immediate tax cost. You'll have to pay taxes on contributions that you previously deducted, as well as on the account's earnings. For more details speak with your plan administrator.
