Greetings,

On Form 1040 the penalty is listed on line 58 "Additional tax on IRAs, other qualified retirement plans, etc."

You do not need to attach Form 5329 as it is not required when you are entering ten percent of the withdrawal on line 58 and no exception to the penalty is claimed.
That is, line 58 is one tenth of line 15b.

Line 15b is the taxable amount of the withdrawal which is the amount taken that is more than what you contributed to the Roth IRA (when it was contributed and not converted from a traditional IRA).

Please ask if you need clarification.

..i dont understand this ..i have the form for 1040A....I DONT HAVE WHAT YOU are talking about ????????my roth was already taxed,i just have to pay penalty fee ...can i do this on the form i have ?

Expert:  jgordosea replied 1 year ago.
Hello again,

Sorry, but because you have the penalty you can not use the 1040A and you must use the 1040 to list the penalty on the form.

You did have money taken out for the penalty but just like the money comes out of our paycheck and we list that as paid on the return that money from the IRA for taxes will be included as payments (in addition to the payments from the W-2) on Form 1040 line 62.

To report the money from the plan and the penalty you will use Form 1040.
A copy is at http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040.pdf
You will be able to leave many of the lines blank that do not apply.

Please ask if you need more clarification.
