I see the GOP plan has tax rates for dividends as half the income tax rate so that means the 0% rate could well be gone. Standard deduction is going to be bigger at the first tax bracket is 12%. So presumably I might be converting at 6%. I could go for that.
How do you figure converting at 6%?

Sorry thanks for correcting this, I had already adjusted for my pension and hadn't thought about that when posting.
