It is possible to recharacterize an IRA contribution, for example, by moving money contributed/converted to a Roth IRA account into a Traditional IRA account.
Is it possible to "recharacterize" a distribution from an IRA of either type?
For example, if a withdrawal is made from a Traditional IRA but it is later determined that a withdrawal from a Roth IRA would have been better (pushed over an income bracket/limit, mistake distribution, changes in financial situation, etc.), is there any recourse?
What is the time limit, if any, for doing so (end of calendar year, tax filing date, something else?)
