I received a bonus from my employer Dec 31, 1997 (it was in my account by 31 Dec, 1997 via direct deposit) However it was not accounted for until my Jan paycheck. My employer is now claiming it is 1998 income because it is on a Jan pay statement (with a date of completion of Dec 31). This will cost me hundreds of thousands of dollars in the long haul because it will put my income over 100,000 for 1998, thus I will not be able to convert to Roth IRAs. Am I correct in thinking, if I got paid the money in 1997, I should pay the tax on this upcoming tax form. (feels kinda of wierd trying to move up paying taxes)ThanksOne unhappy employee
