This year I did a backdoor Roth IRA (made a non-deductible contribution in 2012 and immediately converted it to a Roth in 2012).
I entered this into TurboTax and Part II is correctly filled out. However, in Part I, line 8 is empty.
I called up TurboTax and the lady mentioned that because what I did is considered a "recharacterization" as it occurred in the same year, and thus line 8 would not be filled in. She didn't seem too sure though.
Can someone tell me if a Backdoor Roth IRA should have line 8 filled out on Form 8606?
