Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
I am assuming there were no tax
taken out or paid on the roll over, so the money currently in the annuity are still pre tax. Which means, you only include in your income what you actually received from the annuity, not what you rolled over. For example if your 401k had 45K and that's the amount you rolled over into annuity, but you only received 40K from the annuity, you will report 40K on your 2015 tax return
You cannot claim the loss because you never paid tax on the amount at the first place. Pre tax retirement
accounts are not treated the same way as investment accounts funded with after tax money.
I see you offline now. So if this answered your question, please take a moment to rate
