Retirement tax questions

I would keep the 1998 Form 5498 from the Roth IRA forever.  This form substantiates your basis in Roth conversions if you make a distribution from your Roth IRAs prior to age 59½.  After age 59½ this form substantiates that you had a Roth IRA long enough ago that any distribution from your Roth IRAs would be a qualified distribution.
