Since the annuity was lost but has been reimbursed by the bank there is no theft to report. Hence, you would only report the reimbursement of excess money over your basis as income from annuities.
Most distributions (both periodic and nonperiodic) from qualified retirement plans and nonqualified annuity contracts made to you before you reach age 59½ are subject to an additional tax of 10%. This tax applies to the part of the distribution that you must include in gross income. It does not apply to any part of a distribution that is tax free, such as amounts that represent a return of your cost or that were rolled over to another retirement plan.
