So sorry if this has already been answered, but I am totally confused. In 2000 I made an excess contribution to a Roth IRA for the year 2000. I withdrew the excess in 2001 prior to the due date for my 2000 return. (There was no gain on the amount, there was a loss. So there is no complication of having to report a gain and paying tax on the gain.)I filed a form 5329 with my 2000 return. I attached a note to it explaining that no tax or penalty was due because the excess contribution had been removed prior to the due date of that return. I did not put the distribution on line 15a of the 2000 return because the money was withdrawn in 2001. Now here I am just finishing my return for 2001. I am fairly confident that I do not have to file a form 8606. But do I list the "distribution" on line 15a and attach a note explaining the distribution? That is what I am inclined to do. Thanks, sorry if this has already been answered . . . if so, just point me to the post, please.gloria
