My question relates to an IRA withdrawal that is then deposited as a Roth conversion. Will this withdrawal count as a once-per-year IRA rollover?
Thanks in advance for your wonderful advice.
Thanks for the kind words. Roth conversions are not subject to the once-per-year rollover rule. Only traditional IRA-to-traditional IRA and Roth IRA-to-Roth IRA rollovers count.
My question is about the Uniform Lifetime Table. I started taking my lifetime RMDs in 2018 when I was age 70-1/2. So, for this year (I will be 74) I would be using the divisor of 23.8 using the old Uniform Lifetime Table. My questions is: Do I keep using that table, or should I use the new 2022 RMD Uniform Lifetime Table, therefore making the divisor 25.5?
You should switch to the new Uniform Lifetime Table and take advantage of the longer life expectancies, in your case, 25.5 for 2022. This will result in a slightly lower annual RMD.
