I converted my ~$5,000 trad. IRA into a Roth (as well as opening a contributory Roth) this year. Until two years ago, I was married and left all of the financial details to my then-husband (I have since become much more Foolish). I do not know if my IRA contributions were deducted from our income taxes for those years when we were married or not. My question is, to make a long story short (too late!), where can I find out if those contributions several years ago were deducted? Whether or not they were impacts how much money in taxes I pay for the next 4 years re. the Roth conversion. I really don't want to have to contact my ex-husband to find this out and I don't have copies of the returns we filed jointly. Thank you & sorry for so long a question.
