You mention that you have a traditional IRA, but you don't say anything about its pre/post tax composition

It's mostly pre-tax, but there is some after-tax included now. Definitely not clear-cut, and at the moment don't know how to determine the split. Hindsight would have been to put that in a separate after-tax IRA.


That wouldn't have helped, as you'll find when you examine Part I of Form 8606. It's really pretty simple if you've kept good records and properly reported your after-tax contributions.
