When and Where To File(p1)

rule
File Form 5329 with your 2011 Form 1040 or Form 1040NR by the due date, including extensions, of your Form 1040 or Form 1040NR.
If you do not have to file a 2011 income tax return, complete and file Form 5329 by itself at the time and place you would be required to file Form 1040 or Form 1040NR. Be sure to include your address on page 1 of the form and your signature and the date on page 2 of the form. Enclose, but do not attach, a check or money order payable to United States Treasury for any taxes due. Write your SSN and 2011 Form 5329 on the check. For information on other payment options, including credit or debit card payments, see the instructions for Form 1040 or Form 1040NR, or go to IRS.gov.

Prior tax years.(p1)
rule
If you are filing Form 5329 for a prior year, you must use the prior year's version of the form. If you do not have any other changes and have not previously filed a federal income tax return for the prior year, file the prior year's version of Form 5329 by itself (discussed earlier). If you have other changes, file Form 5329 for the prior year with Form 1040X, Amended U.S. Individual Income Tax Return.
