Customer Question
Should I enter my...

Should I enter my 401k distributions on 1040 line 15 or 16? And how about my company pension payments?

Accountant's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Maryland

Accountant's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

Just beginning. Was reading the downloaded 1040 instructions and was confused by the explanations for line 15 and 16..

Accountant's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I guess not.
