[[ As a follow-up to this line of questioning, what if you converted a traditional ira to a roth ira (done august of 98) but don't have any 8606's from previous years? It sounds like I'd have to fill out an 8606 for this years, simply stating that I was putting money into the roth, right?]]Then life is very good. You'll still want to complete Form 8606, Part II, but it would be very easy, since all of your conversion would be subject to tax. Nuttin' to it.[[ This is for my wife, who isn't good with money, and had her sister do her taxes in the years before we got married - I was lucky to get any statements at all.]]If you had no non-deductible contributions, then your 1998 Form 8606 form is a snap. Ignore Part I and move directly to part II. Place your total distribution on line 14a, enter zeros in lines 14b and 15 (I assume that there were no Roth Recharacterications), and line 16 will be your entire contribution amount. Easy.[[ Somebody please help if you can, thanks -]]Hope this does...TMF TaxesRoy
