Subject:  IRA Rollover Tax Withholding Date:  6/25/2000  10:52 AM

My fiancee recently left her job and decided to roll over her 401k account. She rolled over her account into a traditional IRA account and then converted the traditional IRA account into a Roth IRA account. Unfortunately, she did not fill in the account application section which would have waived all federal withholding tax. Her account is now 10% lighter and I suspect she is also subject to a 10% premature distribution penalty tax. Is there anyway to fix this error either now or on her tax return?
