Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Did you invest the money in IRA after taxes all this year and now are planning to withdraw it? What is your age?
But did you invest the money in IRA account all these years? If yes, than any withdrawal from the IRA account over the amount that you had invested(from your after tax money) will be subject to tax.
Normally, the Form 1099R that you receive will report the taxable distribution amount.
Let me know if you have any question. Bonus and Feedback will be highly appreciated!!!

If you rolled over the entire amount (including the after-tax contributions) in the profit sharing plan to an IRA then the after-tax amounts become part of your IRA basis that must be reported on Form 8606. Each year that you take distributions from your IRA you will have to file Form 8606 to calculate the portion of the distribution which is tax-free based on your IRA basis and the value of all of your IRA accounts. The IRA trustee will send Form 1099-R to you each year that you take a distribution but it will not identify the amounts that are taxable and tax-free for these purposes.
