>> In essence, you must ask that the original contribution be "recharacterized" as a contribution to a nondeductible traditional IRA and that the contributions and all earnings be transferred to a traditional IRA for that purpose. If you do that, then the original contribution will be redesignated as one made to a nondeductible traditional IRA instead of a Roth. <<

Thanks for the info! How would I differentiate the 1999 contribution's earnings from the 1998 contribution's earnings? Or would it be better to transfer the 1999 $2000 to a seperate Roth so they would be seperate entities?
