My wife, 55, had only a Roth IRA. Our income does not allow more contributions to her Roth.She opened a Traditional IRA, deposited $6500 and moved it the next day into her Roth. I read this was legal and called a "back door" Roth contribution.H&R Block tax program now says we owe a $360 penalty for excess contribution. Is this a program error or did I misunderstand what I could legally do? So far, no reply from HR Block.Thanks,Jerry
