Exception for Roth IRA Distributions


rule
spacer

If you received an early distribution from a Roth IRA, first allocate the amount on your 2009 Form 8606, line 19 (not including any qualified disaster recovery assistance distributions), in the order shown, to the amounts on the lines listed below (to the extent a prior year distribution was not allocable to the amount). *If applicable, reduce this amount by any amounts attributable to qualified disaster recovery assistance distributions.
Then, include on line 1 of Form 5329 the amount from your 2009 Form 8606, line 25c, plus the amount, if any, allocated to the amount on your 2009 Form 8606, line 20, and the amount, if any, allocated to line 18 of your 2005 through 2009 Forms 8606. Also include the amount, if any, from your 2009 Form 8606, line 20, on Form 5329, line 2, and enter exception number 09.

Example.

You converted $20,000 from a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA in 2005 and converted $10,000 in 2006. Your 2005 Form 8606 had $5,000 on line 17 and $15,000 on line 18 and your 2006 Form 8606 had $3,000 on line 17 and $7,000 on line 18. You made Roth IRA contributions of $2,000 for 2005 and 2006. You did not make any Roth IRA conversions or contributions for 2007 through 2009, or take any Roth IRA distributions before 2009. On July 9, 2009, at age 53, you took a $33,000 distribution from your Roth IRA. Your 2009 Form 8606 shows $33,000 on line 19; $29,000 on line 23 ($33,000 minus $4,000 for your contributions on line 22) and $0 on line 25a ($29,000 minus your basis in conversions of $30,000). First, $4,000 of the $33,000 is allocated to your 2009 Form 8606, line 22; then $15,000 to your 2005 Form 8606, line 18; $5,000 to your 2005 Form 8606, line 17; and $7,000 to your 2006 Form 8606, line 18. The remaining $2,000 is allocated to the $3,000 on your 2006 Form 8606, line 17. On line 1, enter $22,000 ($15,000 allocated to your 2005 Form 8606, line 18, plus the $7,000 that was allocated to your 2006 Form 8606, line 18). If you take a Roth IRA distribution in 2010, the first $1,000 will be allocated to the $1,000 remaining from your 2006 Form 8606, line 17, and will not be subject to the additional tax on early distributions.

These distributions are included in boxes 1 and 2a of Form 1099-R and are designated with code S in box 7.
