If you do that, then the original contribution will be redesignated as one made to a nondeductible traditional IRA instead of a Roth. <<Thanks for the info! How would I differentiate the 1999 contribution's earnings from the 1998 contribution's earnings? Or would it be better to transfer the 1999 $2000 to a seperate Roth so they would be seperate entities?Based on your prior query, I assume the 1999 money is already in the Roth IRA. Thus, it probably already has earnings. Your IRA provider should be able to help you arttribute what part of the earnings should be allocated to that contribution when and if you must recharacterize. Most will, but to be sure you should call and ask.Regards….Pixy
