Each time you process a conversion of AFTER-TAX solo 401k funds to Roth IRA, please complete the following on-line form.
- If each participant is converting funds after-tax funds to a Roth IRA, please submit a separate on-line conversion form for each participant.
- It is best to submit this on-line conversion form once you have converted/moved the funds to the ROTH IRA to ensure all gains are accounted for.
- We will issue the Form 1099-R in February 2022 to report the conversion to the Roth IRA.
I like to do monthly contributions for cash flow, dollar cost averaging and budgeting reasons. Will this be problematic or inconvenient to send money to the solo 401k then make monthly conversions to Roth IRA? Is there an automatic mechanism for this?
No issue, and you can let us know by year end the total amount converted using the above online form so that we can collect the necessary information for issuing the Form 1099-R for reporting the non-taxable conversion.
Is it Allowed:
Is it still an in-plan conversion if I moved the funds from my solo 401k After-Tax bucket into my ROTH IRA?
Yes, in that it is allowed and not taxable if there are no gains. Also, a Form 1099-R would be issued to report the conversion. In order to issue the Form 1099-R, we would need the above form timely completed.
