IRA Worksheet


?   Calculation type:
TaxSlayer rounds the ratio of basis to IRA totals to 3 decimal places which can result in minor taxable amount and new basis amount errors.

The "No rounding" option does not round the ratio and is more accurate. But using this option will not match the Form 8606 produced by TaxSlayer.
