I have 3 regular ira accounts. I did this when govt guarantees

This answer was rated:

I have 3 regular ira accounts. I did this when govt guarantees were smaller. Now I would
like to roll two of them into the third one. I know I can roll one without penalty. Can I roll
two within the same year without them being taxable?

MyVirtualCPA :

Thank you for your question, and thanks for using JustAnswer.com

MyVirtualCPA :

Yes, you can roll over both IRAs without any penalty. There's no tax on a rollover, whether you do 1 or more per year

MyVirtualCPA :

So, you can place all three of your accounts into one big account if you so choose

Someone came in my office, my apologies

MyVirtualCPA :

I answered your question. You can transfer all three accounts into one account, there's no penalty for doing so

MyVirtualCPA :

The rollover isn't a "one time per year" thing - any time you roll over funds there's no tax or penalty

Customer:

thank you
