Hi all - I was on the community prev on this issue and got some helpful pointers. Now want to finalize the return.
Client contributed $6k twice to his regular IRA in 2020. Both were converted (back door) into his Roth.
I have had the broker involved in the 2nd contribution (broker B) remove the 2nd $6k back into his IRA ( as if it never happened - no earnings or interest) and move the ira contribution to 2021.
The 1099 for this 2nd traditional ira distribution is now corrected to zero.
So I have 2 x 1099 distribution forms from broker B for 2020, one for $6k and one for zero.
Do I need to enter both into his 2020 taxes as the corrected 1099 is zero? Or neither as the IRS will receive the corrected zero 1099. I know I can paper file, attach both the initial 1099 and the corrected, and explain in a covering letter.
I am just questioning the correct way to enter into Pro-series in the event that I decide to e-file.
"So I have 2 x 1099 distribution forms from broker B for 2020, one for $6k"
The original topic is here: https://proconnect.intuit.com/community/tax-talk/discussion/excess-back-door-roth-contribution/00/12...
So, it turned out the May and Dec were both for 2020? And the Dec broker issued the Corrected 1099-R? And as I recall (instead of updating that topic where you have the background), you should have one of these (the $0) marked as Corrected.
"Do I need to enter both into his 2020 taxes as the corrected 1099 is zero?"
Nope. Nothing happened = $0. That corrected one is the failed conversion. You have one conversion to report, and perhaps some taxable earnings on the excess.
