Hi. Great Question. You can actually leave the IRA as is and have a separate 401k account.

Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you.

But i wish to move the $$'s into the 401k and leave behind the nondeductible ira contributions and comvert them to a roth hence the rationale behind the original question
Expert:  ABC Accounting Group replied 18 days ago.

Thank you for confirming. If it is a 401k with your employer - you cannot transfer $'s from your IRA to an employer's 401k. Just confirming. The nondeductible ira contribution - you can convert to a Roth IRA.

Just confirming the 401k account. Thank you.

You are able to do the transfers as specified, then.
