I made a Roth IRA conversion in 2018. Can I income average for this?

No. Income averaging is limited to certain lump-sum distributions from qualified retirement plans. There is no income averaging for IRA distributions or income resulting from a Roth IRA conversion.

Capital gain distribution

A mutual-fund distribution allocated to gains realized on the sale of fund portfolio assets. You report the distribution as long-term capital gain even if you held the fund shares short term.
