Massachusetts 2011: Taxable 2010 ROTH IRA Conversion
Taxpayers, who converted funds from certain retirement accounts to a ROTH IRA in 2010, were able to elect to pay the tax on that conversion amount in 2011 and 2012.
Certain customers, who had a ROTH IRA conversion in 2010 and received a form 1099R for a retirement distribution in 2011, may have filed an incorrect Massachusetts tax return.
TurboTax has fixed this issue.
