Pixy,

Many thanks. I got instructions on requesting a recharacterization from Datek's email support. (I've gotten better results from their email support so far.) I have to mail in an Internal Transfer form with a note explaining my recharacterization request.

Based on my reading of the IRS materials... after I get the recharacterization do I have to report it on my 2000 tax return? Does this mean I have to submit an amended 2000 return (1040X) to explain the recharacterization along with the IRA form (8606)?
