This is informational only, two points to make:

1 I did Conventional to Roth Conversions on some of my IRA accounts in 1998. I received 1099R from each of the custodians for all the conversions.

I was required to report on the revised Form 8606.

I will admit that was a time consuming and complex project because the form is incomplete on its face, and the instructions are not given in sequential order.

I did not receive 5498's on any of my IRAs to date, and my IRS reporting for the year 1998 is complete.
