If you made qualified rollover - means you reinvested the money within 60 days after the distribution - that amount is not taxable.
The distribution is reported on form 1099R and rollover contribution is reported on form 5498.
The IRS will have both forms as well and will match amounts distributed and contributed.
For instance - if you distributed $5000 and rolled over the full distributed amount - you will report on form 1040 - line 15a = $5000 and line 15b=zero - so none will be included into taxable income.
