Ask A CPA - Roth IRAs

If I Re-Characterized My Roth IRA To A Regular IRA , Can I Reconvert It Back To To A Roth IRA ?

Yes. The IRS lets you make changes from Roth IRAs to regular IRAs and back, more than once. After you re-characterize a Roth IRA to a regular IRA, you can convert it again but not until the following year, or thirty days later, whichever takes longer.
