Form 8606 failed to file for spouse

You have 2 options ... you can amend the return if needed and attach the 8606   OR   mail in the 8606 on it's own.

Form 8606 failed to file for spouse

Did your spouse either make a new non-deductible Traditional IRA contribution, take a Traditional IRA distribution (have a 1099-R) or do a conversion to a Roth IRA?   If not then there should NOT be a new 8606-S.


Also, if one of the above does apply then you might have not indicated that the contribution or 1099-R was for the spouse and it went on a 8606-T instead.
