1099-R Summary

I have a problem with my Form 1099-R Summary.
If you add line 9 to line 9a you end up with 150% to transfer to Form 1040 line 15b instead of 50%.
Lines 6 through 11
The explanation for the section shows that 10 equals "The sum of lines 6, 7, 8, 8a, 9, and 9a in the taxpayer column.
"Line 10 is supposed to be the "Taxable amount to be included on Form 1040 line 15b"
It seems like line 10 should be line 9 MINUS line 9a to arrive at the 50% ammount to be transferred to Form 1040 line 15b.
If you add line 9 to line 9a you end up with 150% instead of 50%.
Thanks for your help

    Sometimes you can't go by the summary or review screens.  They display info in a different way.  Just make sure your actual 1040 form is correct.
    • Did you do a Roth conversion in 2010, and elect to have 50% deferred to 2011, and 50% to 2012?

    People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

    1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
    2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
    3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
    4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
    5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
