<<I understand that (in 1998 only) you can spread the effects of rolling over a regular IRA into a Roth IRA over 4 years. Is there any way to elect to avoid this 4-year spread-out and roll the IRA over all at once?>>Nope...sorry, Dan. The law is clear that the "spreading" of the income is not an election, but something that must be done if you take the rollover in 1998.<< Also, are there any special tax forms (besides the IRA line on the 1040) that one must fill out to document regular IRA contributions? IRA contributions that turn out to be non-deductible?>>The form that you will want to use is Form 8606. This form reports the IRA as non-deductible, and tracks your tax basis in your IRA for future tax reference. You can view/download Form 8606 at the IRS web site (http://www.irs.ustreas.gov).TMF TaxesRoy
