Hello, I'm just trying to calculate all the ramifications of my converting a traditional IRA to a ROTH. I understand that I will have to include the converted amount as income on my tax return. What I need to know is if the conversion income is used to calculate FICA. Since I am self employed, I pay the whole tamale and I'm not sure if FICA was paid on the original investment in previous years.

Thanks for your help
