I had made Roth IRA contributions for 2006 but then found out that we were over the MAGI limit to do so. I had the contributions recharacterized as traditional IRA contributions. My understanding is that I now just need to report the contributions on form 8606. Is there anything else special that has to be done to show this recharacterization?
