Good point. Upon more research I now think that programs such as TurboTax, HR Block on line, TaxAct, and others just transmit that the Worksheet was applied to the IRS via e filing rather than providing an actual worksheet. No one is reporting on forums that I frequent that the IRS is requesting the actual calculations or a completed worksheet. There are minor differences between tax programs, and always a question whether the taxpayer entered the correct data. I would carefully review the 8606 to make sure that lines 14 and 16-18 are correct if a conversion was the only distribution. If so, no need to be concerned.
