Many thanks for your reply below. It was immensely helpful. My situation matches your second example, i.e., the conversion was made to an existing Roth IRA. This brings up another problem. Form 1099R shows the value of the conversion (it was securities, not cash) on the day when the conversion was made. I do not know the exact balance in the Roth IRA on that day, but only its balance on the end-of-month statement that month. Additionally, the value of the conversion shown on the end-of-month statement had declined by 1.24% from the day that it was converted (and the amount on form 1099R). So which of the two amounts should I use for the amount of the conversion? Unless, I extrapolated, the only amount that I have for the account value is the end-of-month one.If all else fails, interpolate between the (start of month + conversion) and end of month. But first, try contacting your Roth IRA custodian and ask them if they can provide the account value immediately before and after the conversion.Ira
