nfeemster2, a traditional IRA contribution made for 2015 goes on your 2015 tax return. If you did not already report it on your 2015 tax return, you must amend your 2015 tax return to add it. If nondeductible, 2015 TurboTax will prepare 2015 Form 8606 to report the nondeductible traditional IRA contribution for 2015. The amount on line 14 of your 2015 Form 8606 will then carry to line 2 of your 2016 From 8606 to be applied in calculating the taxable amount of your 2016 Roth conversion that you will report by entering the 2016 Form 1099-R into 2016 TurboTax.
