have it e-mailed to you.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 convertedamount is to be spread out over 4 years. I had HR Block prepare my taxreturn to assure that this conversion was taken care of correctly. Mytraditional IRA consisted of $2000 annual contributions from years95,96,97. Of those years, only 1995 was tax deductible because in 1996 and1997 I contributed also to my 401K program. So even despite explicitlytelling the person at HR block all of this...I am being fully taxed on myentire rollover...somehow the $4000 "already taxed" contribution is beingincluded on the amount that I have to pay taxes on for the 4 years. Idon't know what to do? I spoke to an IRS guy on the phone after being onhold for 45 minutes...and he told me that HR block is responsible toadjust this number...is it that simple? Or do I have to write a letter tothe IRS to explain my situation. This will save me a tax bill on $4000. >>Please post this question on our "Tax Strategies" message board at:<A
