- You are not required to Roth convert 100%. You may elect to Roth convert a portion of your IRA or 401(k) annually.
In-kind Roth conversions allow for the conversion of assets like notes, real property, and LLCs without liquidating. In-kind conversions require a fair market valuation by a certified appraiser.
