Roth IRA contributions are not reported on a 8606, in fact Roth contributions are not reported on a tax return at all, however, a penalty for an excessive IRA contribution is reported on a 5329 form, not a 8606.
The financial institution reports the Roth contributions to the IRS each May on a 5498 form in box 10.
After you enter your 1099-R TurboTax will ask you the amount of previous year contributions. and make the adjustment
if you also made a contribution in 2017 that is entered in a different place.
If you converted your traditional, SEP, or SIMPLE IRA to a Roth IRA in 2017, you will need the Form 8606.
I am attaching the following instructions. ( Please also note that as IRS is finalizing some of the tax forms, Form 8606 will not be available until 2/15/2018 )
