I rolled over my 401k into a traditional IRA, and then converted that into a Roth IRA. $5600. I want to pay tax on this $5600 to make it Roth. But turbotax is not letting me.
I also made my annual 2018 contribution to my Roth IRA of $5500, which I later recharacterized to a Traditional IRA. Only because I am not allowed to make direct Roth IRA contributions (income limits) - so I have to do the backdoor. But the backdoor was done in 2019, so I have to deal with that next year.
Anyways. when I look at the worksheet, Turbotax is only asking me to pay tax on $100 ($5600 - $5500). It is combining the two separate events. How do I fix this?
Here's detailed steps to help you:
