Massachusetts 2011: IRA to Roth Conversion
In 2010, taxpayers could convert funds from a traditional IRA to a 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 2011 Massachusetts tax return.
TurboTax has fixed this issue.
How to tell if you have be impacted
You may be affected if ALL of the following are true:
• You filed a 2011 Massachusetts Income Tax Return AND
• Your 2011 federal tax return included a nondeductible IRA contribution AND
• You converted funds from a traditional IRA distribution to a Roth IRA in 2011 AND
• In 2010, you converted funds from a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA AND
• Elected to pay the tax on that conversion in 2011 and 2012 AND
• On your 2011 federal tax return, there is an amount on Form 1040, line 15b (IRA distributions, taxable amount) AND
• That amount is not the amount on your 2010 Massachusetts tax return, Schedule X and Y, line 2 (taxable IRA and Roth IRA conversion distributions.)
If you are affected, you may have overpaid or underpaid your state tax. You will need to amend your Massachusetts tax return.
