<< I started traditional IRA's back in 1994. Looking back at my tax records, I realize that I should have filed form 8606 for years 1995,1996. 1997, I filled one out but not correctly. 1998 was the first time I used a professional tax preparer and they failed to file a form 8606. So what should I do at this point. >>

File an amended 8606 for 1998, using the correct prior basis, and hang on to all your records, including records of the contributions and copies of your returns for the affected years.
