Customer Question

1099R shows distribution of 100,000, taxable amount of 75,000, Distribution Code 2. The entire amount was rolled over, trustee to trustee, from a qualified employer plan. Why is the $75,000 "taxable"? What does "taxable" mean here, does it mean taxed now, or does it mean that is the taxable portion when it is subsequently distributed?

Form 1099 R provides distribution code 2 which means exception applies. You need to report this amount on your tax return(Form 1040) Line 16a and 0 on Line 16b. Hence, none of the amount will be taxable since it is a rollover into a qualified plan.

Generally the Form 1099R should have reported taxable amount as 0 in case of trustee to trustee rollover and reported the distribution code for direct rollover. Have you tried contacting them to find out if this was an error on their part?
