hello everyone!

i just want to make sure that i am crystal clear in regard to completing form 8606 as far as conversions are concerned.

i understand that all non-deductible contributions need to be entered on line 1. lines 2 and 3 comprise of basic math to update the overall basis.

however, in regard to converting:

-if you convert ALL of your traditional ira, you only need to complete Part II to calculate the taxable converted amount.
-if you do a PARTIAL conversion, you need to use PART I to calculate the taxable converted amount.

i did see post # 24376 and i want to verify that my understanding noted above is correct. i'm still shellshocked from some misguidance given by a h&r block tax advisor.

i would appreciate any assistance.

thanks,

trying to convert from a fool to a Fool.
