Bob78164 sez:

<<Simply recharacterize the contributions as traditional IRA contributions. I'd suggest, though, that you wait until next year -- you have until at least April 17, 2000, to complete the process. If bad things happen this year, you may find that your AGI isn't above the limit after all. By February or so, you'll know. >>

While I agree fully with your response, I do believe you made a typographical error in the cutoff date for the recharacterization. It should be April 15, 2000, as opposed to April 17.
