Have a question about your personal investments? No matter how simple or complex, you can ask it here.
The 2012 15% tax bracket is $70,700. I would like to convert some regular IRA dollars to ROTH but I have a question. Is that $70,700
my Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) or my Taxable Income?

But it's too late for 2012. Any Roth conversion you do now goes on your 2013 tax return. (If you converted too much in 2012, putting you above $70,700, you could fix it now by recharacterizing the excess.)

You also could have withdrawn funds from the TIRA in the last 3 weeks of December and could roll all or part of them over to a Roth IRA within 60 days. But almost nobody does that...

In 2013 the top of the 15% tax bracket is $72,500 (or $72,499 I'm not sure which) in taxable income. When tax brackets/tax rates are discussed the number is almost always taxable income.
