Subject: Re: Roth IRA conversion...doubly taxed!!!

Greetings erickopp and welcome to the Motley Fool!

You write:

<<In 1998 I converted my Traditional IRA to a Roth IRA. The converted
amount is to be spread out over 4 years. I had HR Block prepare my tax
return to assure that this conversion was taken care of correctly. My
traditional IRA consisted of $2000 annual contributions from years
95,96,97. Of those years, only 1995 was tax deductible because in 1996 and
1997 I contributed also to my 401K program. So even despite explicitly
telling the person at HR block all of this...I am being fully taxed on my
entire rollover...somehow the $4000 "already taxed" contribution is being
included on the amount that I have to pay taxes on for the 4 years. I
don't know what to do? I spoke to an IRS guy on the phone after being on
hold for 45 minutes...and he told me that HR block is responsible to
adjust this number...is it that simple? Or do I have to write a letter to
the IRS to explain my situation. This will save me a tax bill on $4000. >>
