If you have both a distribution from an IRA and contributions to an IRA in the current year, which may not be deductible because of your income level, you will need to use Worksheet 1-1 from IRS Publication 590-B, page 15, when completing Form 8606. This worksheet parallels and replaces the calculations on lines 6 through 12. The TaxAct program will automatically populate this worksheet if it is needed and you will see asterisks next to lines 13 and 15 indicating that the Publication 590-B worksheet is being used.
