Ask A CPA - Roth IRAs

Do I Have To Make My Re-Characterization Of My Roth To A Conventional IRA Selection By The April 15th Due Date Of The Return ?

No. You are allowed to re-characterize your Roth IRA to a conventional IRA up until the final due date of the income tax return. This means the due date plus extensions translate from April 15th to potentially Oct 15th.
