Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.
Unfortunately, there is no way to lessen your tax liability.
If your 401K plan permitted it, you could have taken a LOAN from your 401K and it would not have been counted as a distribution. You would have paid the loan back through your wages, and it would have only been considered a distribution if you defaulted on the repayment.
I wish I had better news to give you.
Thank you and best regards,
