Phil,Thanks for your reply, but, I still have questions. I downloaded the instructions for Form 8686 as you suggested. The first bullet under Who Must File on page 1 does not apply to me since I did not contribute to an IRA in 2002. The second bullet under Who Must File on page 1 says: "You received distributions from a traditional, SEP or SIMPLE IRA in 2002 (other than a rollover, conversion, recharacterization or return of certain contributions) and your basis in traditional IRAs is more than zero."I received distributions from traditional IRAs with non-zero basis, BUT, the above statement says that I do not have to file the 8606 if the distribution was from a conversion, which mine was from traditional IRA to a Roth IRA.The 3rd bullet says: "You converted an amount from a traditional, SEP, or simple IRA to a Roth IRA in 2002 (unless you recharacterized the entire conversion - see page 3) This is what I did! So, again it seems that I don't have to file Form 8606Thanks again for your help.TerryI know that the explanation goes with the amounts on Line 16a as per the instructions.
