So, to sum up. If you exceed the Roth AGI, you can recharacterize the contribution as a non-traditional IRA contribution (which would be part of your taxable income - because you have exceeded all AGI requirements) but would still acumulate interest tax free until distribution (assume this because its call a non-tradition IRA).

Does this require a new account to be setup (Roth, IRA, Non-traditional IRA)? How do you bookkeep that taxed contribution. You've already paid taxes on it. You shouldn't have to pay taxes at distribution. Do you keep a copy of tax return with account statement? Your co-mingling taxed deferred and taxed contributions. Yes you can recharacterize but were do you move the money?
