I am currently a graduate student in software while doing a self employed contracting gig. As such, I've been using primarily my SEP IRA and Traditional IRA accounts to avoid the heavy self employment taxes.
I'll be graduating in May of 2018 and plan on leaving my contracting gig in order to go fulltime W2 with another company. I would like to take this transitory period as an opportunity to get the majority of my savings into a Roth, and as such I am looking at a backdoor.
But I'm wondering - since the funds were originally from self-employed income AND I took the deductions, will I get hit with self-employement taxes during a backdoor to a Roth?
Thank you very much.
