No, I haven't. I'll have to look into it. Any tips or pointers to info?
edit: and if the IRS is giving backdoors and info on them then they should just change the rules. More bureaucratic nonsense from our government.
Rather than me trying to explain it here are some good links that explain it much better than I ever could.
The backdoor Roth IRA strategy allows taxpayers to set up a Roth IRA even if their income exceeds the IRS earnings ceiling for Roth ownership.
A backdoor Roth IRA lets you convert a traditional IRA into a Roth IRA, which could save on taxes. Backdoor Roths are an option if your income is too high for a Roth IRA.
Basically your broker will open a traditional IRA you deposit your after tax money in there and immediately transfer it to the Roth (or any time before it earns any interest--if it earns any interest before you transfer you will have to pay tax).
