LEV :

Hi and welcome to Just Answer!
If you requested distribution from IRA account - that amount is included into your taxable income.
You may however - put the distributed amount into different IRA account - that will be considered a rollover and will not be taxable - if the money are deposited into another IRA account within 60 days after distribution.
There is no requirements for the bank to correct overpayment - however if overpayment occurred not because of your request but because of bank's mistake - you may request compensation for damages resulted by that mistake. For instance - additional tax liability due to higher tax bracket would be clear your damages.

LEV :

If the bank refuses to compensate your damages - you may sue the bank as long as that is bank's fault..

Customer:

Thank you for your answer. I will continue to talk with the bank. I am satisfied with the $30.00 fee. In fact it has been a relief to get your input.

Dear Lev -- from XXXXX@XXXXXX.XXX -- the bank has adjusted the IRA distributions. Thank you again.

Expert:  Lev replied 1 year ago.
Yes - I understand that distribution might advised by the bank.
However - you are an IRA owner is responsible for any tax liability resulted from such distribution.
As long as 60 days period is not over - you may put the money into another IRA account - and that will not be counted as your taxable income.
