Massachusetts 2010: IRA to Roth Conversion
In 2010, taxpayers could convert funds from a traditional IRA to an Roth IRA and elect to defer paying the tax on that money until 2011 and 2012.
Certain customers who made this election may have an incorrect 2010 Massachusetts tax return.
TurboTax has fixed this issue.
