(Required Minimum Distributions), you may have to pay a 50% excise tax for that year on the amount not distributed as required. 1040x online form For the tax on excess accumulations (insufficient distributions), see Excess Accumulations (Insufficient Distributions) under What Acts Result in Penalties or Additional Taxes? in chapter 1. 1040x online form If this applies to you, substitute “Roth IRA” for “traditional IRA” in that discussion. 1040x online form Prev  Up  Next   Home   More Online Publications
