I withdrew $16K from my IRA last Fall. I had $4K withheld.

Customer Question
I withdrew $16K from my...
I withdrew $16K from my IRA last Fall. I had $4K withheld for taxes. Within 2 weeks of my withdrawal I no longer needed the funds so I re-deposited the $12K back into my IRA. My 1099 R only reflects the $16K and $4K. I called T Rowe Price and they said I would need form 5498 which wouldn't be available until 5/31/16. My question is this: I was hoping my re-deposit would offset my tax liability in 2015. What can I do at this point??

Hello

The $12000 you put back in can be counted as a rollover but the $4000 (even though it was withheld for tax) is going to be taxable to you.

The form 5498 just shows that the $12000 was put in the IRA. You can still show in your return now that $12000 was rolled over. By the time the IRS looks at your return the 5498 will be available.

You need to report the full $16k on line 16a and then the $4000 on 16b.

Please remember to rate my service excellent once you have all the information you need. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
