Turning Capital Losses into Client Gains

Turning Capital Losses into Client Gains

When working with business owners who have a fairly significant capital loss from their business, we may be able to utilize those losses by converting a large portion of an IRA to a Roth IRA. Doing so will allow the business owner to move those tax-deferred dollars to a tax-free bucket while paying little to no income tax. Now those converted dollars will grow tax free for retirement.
