I'd like to cash out the securities in one traditional IRA in my name and transfer/roll over to a different mega-brokerage traditional IRA account owned by my wife. Is that do-able?
My purpose is that I want to be able to maximize the amount of cash we can convert to a Roth in one year. It is $5k each. So, if I can throw $5k over to my wife, she can convert $5k and I can too, for a total of $10k in 2013. But I want to know if I can and if there's any reason not to.
