Discover the World of Brewing at London’s Labatt Brewery

Discover the World of Brewing at London’s Labatt Brewery

 

Good things are brewing in nearby London, Ontario. In fact, the good times have been brewing since 1847! 

London is home to Labatt’s state-of-the-art brewhouse, where founder John Kinder Labatt started brewing beer some 167 years ago. Today, the London facility operates 24 hours a day, five days a week, producing the equivalent of more than one billion bottles of beer a year!

Rollover of After-Tax Dollars from 401(k) Plans

Background

Here's the dilemma. You have a traditional 401(k) that contains both after-tax and pre-tax dollars. You'd like to receive a distribution from the plan, convert only the after-tax dollars to a Roth IRA, and roll the pre-tax dollars into a traditional IRA. (By rolling over/converting only the after-tax dollars to a Roth IRA, you avoid paying any income tax on the conversion.)

For example, let's say your 401(k) plan account balance is $10,000, consisting of $8,000 of pre-tax dollars and $2,000 of after-tax dollars. Can you simply request a total distribution of $10,000, instructing the trustee to directly roll the $8,000 of pre-tax dollars to a traditional IRA and the remaining $2,000 of after-tax dollars to a Roth IRA?
