Hi and welcome to Just Answer!
You should receive a form 1099R - did you?
That amount should represent your earnings inside Roth IRA and that is your taxable amount.Total distribution is reported in box 1. Please verify that amount is box 2a is smaller than the amount in box 1.
There is no amount in box 2a, 2b is checked.
Then - you need to determine your taxable amount by yourself. Do you know what amount was your contribution?
Line 22 of form 8606 says "Enter your basis in Roth IRA contributions". My input here would be the contributions I made.
Is that amount larger than what is reported in box 1?
That is correct.
What I withdrew was only what I contributed.
So I only need to submit a form 8606 with my return?
If there is no earning - nothing should be taxable.When you enter your basis - your taxable amount should be calculated as zero,
form 8606 line 19 - amount from 1099R box 1line 23 - same amountline 24 - your original contribution - assuming the same as line 19line 25 - Taxable amount - zero.
I will have to talk with Turbo Tax as to how I can add the form to my return. Thanks
You are welcome.The amount from line 25 should be transferred to your tax return - if it is zero - nothing should be included into your taxable income.
