Say your traditional IRA was never tax deductable. What would you pay taxes on when converting?You would have to pay taxes on any gains in the converted amount on a pro-rated basis. For instance, if your contributions were $10,000 and your current balance is $15,000, you would pay taxes on $5,000. If only only convert $12,000 out of the $15,000, you would pay taxes on $4,000. The remaining $3,000 in your traditional IRA would have a non-deductible basis of $2,000.AJ
