    Hi Aaron,
    I just read somewhere that there is another opportunity for us to convert entire IRA into Roth IRA. Can you please confirm it?

      For years before 2010, Roth IRA conversions were allowed only if the taxpayer’s modified AGI was no more than $10,000. Beginning in 2010, all individuals, regardless of filing status or AGI, are eligible to roll IRAs and certain employer plans to ROTH IRAs.
