A few months back I converted some "old" mutual fund IRA's (one for me, one for my wife) to traditional IRA's with a discount broker, and then switched those to a Roth. My question relates to the conversion.We established the IRA's probably 12-14 years ago, and over a period about 6 or 7 years we made our $2K contributions 5 times. A couple of those times they were deductable contributions, but a couple of times they weren't.When I calculate my 1998 taxes, would I have to include THE WHOLE conversion (actually 25% of it for this tax year) as income, or is there some formula I would use to determine the portion that was deductable, and only claim that piece of it?I've downloaded Pub #590 from the IRS website, but it's "For use in preparing 1997 Returns", so it doesn't mention anything about a Roth.Thanks in advance,Tim
