Guide to IRS Form 1099-R

Guide to IRS Form 1099-R

Have you started taking income from your retirement savings? Whether for planned income, an early distribution, or the required minimum distribution, you will receive a 1099-R to report this income on your 2016 tax return before long.

A copy of this form is also provided to the IRS, so it is essential that it accurately records the amount of income you received in order to avoid any unnecessary taxes and penalties—including the limitations on once-per-year rollovers introduced in 2015.

The error rate on the 1099-R form is more than 50%, according to one government report.

Don’t let a reporting mistake cost you money!  Review the 1099-R Guide for 2016.
