    This spreadsheet compares the taxes due upon converting a regular IRA to a Roth IRA to the present value of total taxes saved in retirement on the distribution from a regular IRA. If the net present value of taxes saved is positive, it may be advantageous for you to convert. If the net present value of taxes saved is negative, it may not be advantageous for you to convert. Please consult with your tax advisor to determine if you should convert your traditional IRA to a Roth IRA.
