<<If you have a prior non-deductible IRA and convert it to an Roth IRA the form comes to you as all income on your tax form. What form do I use to so I don't pay taxes twice on the non-deductible portion?>>
Use IRS Form 8606 and follow the instructions carefully. If you do, you'll find that your prior traditional IRA contributions will not be taxable when you make your conversion.
I have an article about Form 8606 and how it works in the Taxes FAQ area. You might want to check it out.
