Irs amended tax forms How To Get Tax HelpLow Income Taxpayer Clinics General Information Definitions. Irs amended tax forms   Some of the terms used in this publication are defined in the following paragraphs. Irs amended tax forms Pension. Irs amended tax forms   A pension is generally a series of definitely determinable payments made to you after you retire from work. Irs amended tax forms Pension payments are made regularly and are based on such factors as years of service and prior compensation. Irs amended tax forms Annuity. Irs amended tax forms   An annuity is a series of payments under a contract made at regular intervals over a period of more than one full year. Irs amended tax forms They can be either fixed (under which you receive a definite amount) or variable (not fixed). Irs amended tax forms You can buy the contract alone or with the help of your employer. Irs amended tax forms Qualified employee plan. Irs amended tax forms   A qualified employee plan is an employer's stock bonus, pension, or profit-sharing plan that is for the exclusive benefit of employees or their beneficiaries and that meets Internal Revenue Code requirements. Irs amended tax forms It qualifies for special tax benefits, such as tax deferral for employer contributions and capital gain treatment or the 10-year tax option for lump-sum distributions (if participants qualify). Irs amended tax forms To determine whether your plan is a qualified plan, check with your employer or the plan administrator. Irs amended tax forms Qualified employee annuity. Irs amended tax forms   A qualified employee annuity is a retirement annuity purchased by an employer for an employee under a plan that meets Internal Revenue Code requirements. Irs amended tax forms Designated Roth account. Irs amended tax forms   A designated Roth account is a separate account created under a qualified Roth contribution program to which participants may elect to have part or all of their elective deferrals to a 401(k), 403(b), or 457(b) plan designated as Roth contributions. Irs amended tax forms Elective deferrals that are designated as Roth contributions are included in your income. Irs amended tax forms However, qualified distributions (explained later) are not included in your income. Irs amended tax forms You should check with your plan administrator to determine if your plan will accept designated Roth contributions. Irs amended tax forms Tax-sheltered annuity plan. Irs amended tax forms   A tax-sheltered annuity plan (often referred to as a 403(b) plan or a tax-deferred annuity plan) is a retirement plan for employees of public schools and certain tax-exempt organizations. Irs amended tax forms Generally, a tax-sheltered annuity plan provides retirement benefits by purchasing annuity contracts for its participants. Irs amended tax forms Types of pensions and annuities. Irs amended tax forms   Pensions and annuities include the following types. Irs amended tax forms Fixed-period annuities. Irs amended tax forms   You receive definite amounts at regular intervals for a specified length of time. Irs amended tax forms Annuities for a single life. Irs amended tax forms   You receive definite amounts at regular intervals for life. Irs amended tax forms The payments end at death. Irs amended tax forms Joint and survivor annuities. Irs amended tax forms   The first annuitant receives a definite amount at regular intervals for life. Irs amended tax forms After he or she dies, a second annuitant receives a definite amount at regular intervals for life. Irs amended tax forms The amount paid to the second annuitant may or may not differ from the amount paid to the first annuitant. Irs amended tax forms Variable annuities. Irs amended tax forms   You receive payments that may vary in amount for a specified length of time or for life. Irs amended tax forms The amounts you receive may depend upon such variables as profits earned by the pension or annuity funds, cost-of-living indexes, or earnings from a mutual fund. Irs amended tax forms Disability pensions. Irs amended tax forms   You receive disability payments because you retired on disability and have not reached minimum retirement age. Irs amended tax forms More than one program. Irs amended tax forms   You may receive employee plan benefits from more than one program under a single trust or plan of your employer. Irs amended tax forms If you participate in more than one program, you may have to treat each as a separate pension or annuity contract, depending upon the facts in each case. Irs amended tax forms Also, you may be considered to have received more than one pension or annuity. Irs amended tax forms Your former employer or the plan administrator should be able to tell you if you have more than one contract. Irs amended tax forms Example. Irs amended tax forms Your employer set up a noncontributory profit-sharing plan for its employees. Irs amended tax forms The plan provides that the amount held in the account of each participant will be paid when that participant retires. Irs amended tax forms Your employer also set up a contributory defined benefit pension plan for its employees providing for the payment of a lifetime pension to each participant after retirement. Irs amended tax forms The amount of any distribution from the profit-sharing plan depends on the contributions (including allocated forfeitures) made for the participant and the earnings from those contributions. Irs amended tax forms Under the pension plan, however, a formula determines the amount of the pension benefits. Irs amended tax forms The amount of contributions is the amount necessary to provide that pension. Irs amended tax forms Each plan is a separate program and a separate contract. Irs amended tax forms If you get benefits from these plans, you must account for each separately, even though the benefits from both may be included in the same check. Irs amended tax forms Distributions from a designated Roth account are treated separately from other distributions from the plan. Irs amended tax forms Qualified domestic relations order (QDRO). Irs amended tax forms   A QDRO is a judgment, decree, or order relating to payment of child support, alimony, or marital property rights to a spouse, former spouse, child, or other dependent of a participant in a retirement plan. Irs amended tax forms The QDRO must contain certain specific information, such as the name and last known mailing address of the participant and each alternate payee, and the amount or percentage of the participant's benefits to be paid to each alternate payee. Irs amended tax forms A QDRO may not award an amount or form of benefit that is not available under the plan. Irs amended tax forms   A spouse or former spouse who receives part of the benefits from a retirement plan under a QDRO reports the payments received as if he or she were a plan participant. Irs amended tax forms The spouse or former spouse is allocated a share of the participant's cost (investment in the contract) equal to the cost times a fraction. Irs amended tax forms The numerator of the fraction is the present value of the benefits payable to the spouse or former spouse. Irs amended tax forms The denominator is the present value of all benefits payable to the participant. Irs amended tax forms   A distribution that is paid to a child or other dependent under a QDRO is taxed to the plan participant. Irs amended tax forms Variable Annuities The tax rules in this publication apply both to annuities that provide fixed payments and to annuities that provide payments that vary in amount based on investment results or other factors. Irs amended tax forms For example, they apply to commercial variable annuity contracts, whether bought by an employee retirement plan for its participants or bought directly from the issuer by an individual investor. Irs amended tax forms Under these contracts, the owner can generally allocate the purchase payments among several types of investment portfolios or mutual funds and the contract value is determined by the performance of those investments. Irs amended tax forms The earnings are not taxed until distributed either in a withdrawal or in annuity payments. Irs amended tax forms The taxable part of a distribution is treated as ordinary income. Irs amended tax forms Net investment income tax. Irs amended tax forms   Beginning in 2013, annuities under a nonqualified plan are included in calculating your net investment income for the net investment income tax (NIIT). Irs amended tax forms For information see the Instructions for Form 8960, Net Investment Income Tax — Individuals, Estates and Trusts. Irs amended tax forms For information on the tax treatment of a transfer or exchange of a variable annuity contract, see Transfers of Annuity Contracts under Taxation of Nonperiodic Payments, later. Irs amended tax forms Withdrawals. Irs amended tax forms   If you withdraw funds before your annuity starting date and your annuity is under a qualified retirement plan, a ratable part of the amount withdrawn is tax free. Irs amended tax forms The tax-free part is based on the ratio of your cost (investment in the contract) to your account balance under the plan. Irs amended tax forms   If your annuity is under a nonqualified plan (including a contract you bought directly from the issuer), the amount withdrawn is allocated first to earnings (the taxable part) and then to your cost (the tax-free part). Irs amended tax forms However, if you bought your annuity contract before August 14, 1982, a different allocation applies to the investment before that date and the earnings on that investment. Irs amended tax forms To the extent the amount withdrawn does not exceed that investment and earnings, it is allocated first to your cost (the tax-free part) and then to earnings (the taxable part). Irs amended tax forms   If you withdraw funds (other than as an annuity) on or after your annuity starting date, the entire amount withdrawn is generally taxable. Irs amended tax forms   The amount you receive in a full surrender of your annuity contract at any time is tax free to the extent of any cost that you have not previously recovered tax free. Irs amended tax forms The rest is taxable. Irs amended tax forms   For more information on the tax treatment of withdrawals, see Taxation of Nonperiodic Payments , later. Irs amended tax forms If you withdraw funds from your annuity before you reach age 59½, also see Tax on Early Distributions under Special Additional Taxes, later. Irs amended tax forms Annuity payments. Irs amended tax forms   If you receive annuity payments under a variable annuity plan or contract, you recover your cost tax free under either the Simplified Method or the General Rule, as explained under Taxation of Periodic Payments , later. Irs amended tax forms For a variable annuity paid under a qualified plan, you generally must use the Simplified Method. Irs amended tax forms For a variable annuity paid under a nonqualified plan (including a contract you bought directly from the issuer), you must use a special computation under the General Rule. Irs amended tax forms For more information, see Variable annuities in Publication 939 under Computation Under the General Rule. Irs amended tax forms Death benefits. Irs amended tax forms    If you receive a single-sum distribution from a variable annuity contract because of the death of the owner or annuitant, the distribution is generally taxable only to the extent it is more than the unrecovered cost of the contract. Irs amended tax forms If you choose to receive an annuity, the payments are subject to tax as described above. Irs amended tax forms If the contract provides a joint and survivor annuity and the primary annuitant had received annuity payments before death, you figure the tax-free part of annuity payments you receive as the survivor in the same way the primary annuitant did. Irs amended tax forms See Survivors and Beneficiaries , later. Irs amended tax forms Section 457 Deferred Compensation Plans If you work for a state or local government or for a tax-exempt organization, you may be able to participate in a section 457 deferred compensation plan. Irs amended tax forms If your plan is an eligible plan, you are not taxed currently on pay that is deferred under the plan or on any earnings from the plan's investment of the deferred pay. Irs amended tax forms You are generally taxed on amounts deferred in an eligible state or local government plan only when they are distributed from the plan. Irs amended tax forms You are taxed on amounts deferred in an eligible tax-exempt organization plan when they are distributed or otherwise made available to you. Irs amended tax forms Your 457(b) plan may have a designated Roth account option. Irs amended tax forms If so, you may be able to roll over amounts to the designated Roth account or make contributions. Irs amended tax forms Elective deferrals to a designated Roth account are included in your income. Irs amended tax forms Qualified distributions (explained later) are not included in your income. Irs amended tax forms See the Designated Roth accounts discussion under Taxation of Periodic Payments, later. Irs amended tax forms This publication covers the tax treatment of benefits under eligible section 457 plans, but it does not cover the treatment of deferrals. Irs amended tax forms For information on deferrals under section 457 plans, see Retirement Plan Contributions under Employee Compensation in Publication 525. Irs amended tax forms Is your plan eligible?   To find out if your plan is an eligible plan, check with your employer. Irs amended tax forms Plans that are not eligible section 457 plans include the following: Bona fide vacation leave, sick leave, compensatory time, severance pay, disability pay, or death benefit plans. Irs amended tax forms Nonelective deferred compensation plans for nonemployees (independent contractors). Irs amended tax forms Deferred compensation plans maintained by churches. Irs amended tax forms Length of service award plans for bona fide volunteer firefighters and emergency medical personnel. Irs amended tax forms An exception applies if the total amount paid to a volunteer exceeds $3,000 for any year of service. Irs amended tax forms Disability Pensions If you retired on disability, you generally must include in income any disability pension you receive under a plan that is paid for by your employer. Irs amended tax forms You must report your taxable disability payments as wages on line 7 of Form 1040 or Form 1040A or on line 8 of Form 1040NR until you reach minimum retirement age. Irs amended tax forms Minimum retirement age generally is the age at which you can first receive a pension or annuity if you are not disabled. Irs amended tax forms You may be entitled to a tax credit if you were permanently and totally disabled when you retired. Irs amended tax forms For information on this credit, see Publication 524. Irs amended tax forms Beginning on the day after you reach minimum retirement age, payments you receive are taxable as a pension or annuity. Irs amended tax forms Report the payments on Form 1040, lines 16a and 16b; Form 1040A, lines 12a and 12b; or on Form 1040NR, lines 17a and 17b. Irs amended tax forms Disability payments for injuries incurred as a direct result of a terrorist attack directed against the United States (or its allies) are not included in income. Irs amended tax forms For more information about payments to survivors of terrorist attacks, see Publication 3920, Tax Relief for Victims of Terrorist Attacks. Irs amended tax forms Insurance Premiums for Retired Public Safety Officers If you are an eligible retired public safety officer (law enforcement officer, firefighter, chaplain, or member of a rescue squad or ambulance crew), you can elect to exclude from income distributions made from your eligible retirement plan that are used to pay the premiums for accident or health insurance or long-term care insurance. Irs amended tax forms The premiums can be for coverage for you, your spouse, or dependents. Irs amended tax forms The distribution must be made directly from the plan to the insurance provider. Irs amended tax forms You can exclude from income the smaller of the amount of the insurance premiums or $3,000. Irs amended tax forms You can only make this election for amounts that would otherwise be included in your income. Irs amended tax forms The amount excluded from your income cannot be used to claim a medical expense deduction. Irs amended tax forms An eligible retirement plan is a governmental plan that is: a qualified trust, a section 403(a) plan, a section 403(b) annuity, or a section 457(b) plan. Irs amended tax forms If you make this election, reduce the otherwise taxable amount of your pension or annuity by the amount excluded. Irs amended tax forms The amount shown in box 2a of Form 1099-R does not reflect this exclusion. Irs amended tax forms Report your total distributions on Form 1040, line 16a; Form 1040A, line 12a; or Form 1040NR, line 17a. Irs amended tax forms Report the taxable amount on Form 1040, line 16b; Form 1040A, line 12b; or Form 1040NR, line 17b. Irs amended tax forms Enter “PSO” next to the appropriate line on which you report the taxable amount. Irs amended tax forms If you are retired on disability and reporting your disability pension on line 7 of Form 1040 or Form 1040A, or line 8 of Form 1040NR, include only the taxable amount on that line and enter “PSO” and the amount excluded on the dotted line next to the applicable line. Irs amended tax forms Railroad Retirement Benefits Benefits paid under the Railroad Retirement Act fall into two categories. Irs amended tax forms These categories are treated differently for income tax purposes. Irs amended tax forms The first category is the amount of tier 1 railroad retirement benefits that equals the social security benefit that a railroad employee or beneficiary would have been entitled to receive under the social security system. Irs amended tax forms This part of the tier 1 benefit is the social security equivalent benefit (SSEB) and you treat it for tax purposes like social security benefits. Irs amended tax forms If you received, repaid, or had tax withheld from the SSEB portion of tier 1 benefits during 2013, you will receive Form RRB-1099, Payments by the Railroad Retirement Board (or Form RRB-1042S, Statement for Nonresident Alien Recipients of Payments by the Railroad Retirement Board, if you are a nonresident alien) from the U. Irs amended tax forms S. Irs amended tax forms Railroad Retirement Board (RRB). Irs amended tax forms For more information about the tax treatment of the SSEB portion of tier 1 benefits and Forms RRB-1099 and RRB-1042S, see Publication 915. Irs amended tax forms The second category contains the rest of the tier 1 railroad retirement benefits, called the non-social security equivalent benefit (NSSEB). Irs amended tax forms It also contains any tier 2 benefit, vested dual benefit (VDB), and supplemental annuity benefit. Irs amended tax forms Treat this category of benefits, shown on Form RRB-1099-R, as an amount received from a qualified employee plan. Irs amended tax forms This allows for the tax-free (nontaxable) recovery of employee contributions from the tier 2 benefits and the NSSEB part of the tier 1 benefits. Irs amended tax forms (The NSSEB and tier 2 benefits, less certain repayments, are combined into one amount called the Contributory Amount Paid on Form RRB-1099-R. Irs amended tax forms ) Vested dual benefits and supplemental annuity benefits are non-contributory pensions and are fully taxable. Irs amended tax forms See Taxation of Periodic Payments , later, for information on how to report your benefits and how to recover the employee contributions tax free. Irs amended tax forms Form RRB-1099-R is used for U. Irs amended tax forms S. Irs amended tax forms citizens, resident aliens, and nonresident aliens. Irs amended tax forms Nonresident aliens.

Irs amended tax forms A tax treaty exemption may reduce or eliminate tax withholding from railroad retirement benefits. Irs amended tax forms See Tax withholding next for more information. Irs amended tax forms   If you are a nonresident alien and your tax withholding rate changed or your country of legal residence changed during the year, you may receive more than one Form RRB-1042S or Form RRB-1099-R.

Irs amended tax forms Use distribution code “7” if you are asked for a distribution code. Irs amended tax forms Distribution codes are not shown on Form RRB-1099-R. Irs amended tax forms   There are three copies of this form. Irs amended tax forms Copy B is to be included with your income tax return if federal income tax is withheld. Irs amended tax forms Copy C is for your own records. Irs amended tax forms Copy 2 is filed with your state, city, or local income tax return, when required. Irs amended tax forms See the illustrated Copy B (Form RRB-1099-R) above. Irs amended tax forms       Each beneficiary will receive his or her own Form RRB-1099-R. Irs amended tax forms If you receive benefits on more than one railroad retirement record, you may get more than one Form RRB-1099-R. Irs amended tax forms So that you get your form timely, make sure the RRB always has your current mailing address. Irs amended tax forms Please click here for the text description of the image. Irs amended tax forms Form RRB-1099-R Box 1—Claim Number and Payee Code. Irs amended tax forms   Your claim number is a six- or nine-digit number preceded by an alphabetical prefix. Irs amended tax forms This is the number under which the RRB paid your benefits. Irs amended tax forms Your payee code follows your claim number and is the last number in this box. Irs amended tax forms It is used by the RRB to identify you under your claim number. Irs amended tax forms In all your correspondence with the RRB, be sure to use the claim number and payee code shown in this box. Irs amended tax forms Box 2—Recipient's Identification Number. Irs amended tax forms   This is the recipient's U. Irs amended tax forms S. Irs amended tax forms taxpayer identification number. Irs amended tax forms It is the social security number (SSN), individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN), or employer identification number (EIN), if known, for the person or estate listed as the recipient. Irs amended tax forms If you are a resident or nonresident alien who must furnish a taxpayer identification number to the IRS and are not eligible to obtain an SSN, use Form W-7, Application for IRS Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, to apply for an ITIN. Irs amended tax forms The Instructions for Form W-7 explain how and when to apply. Irs amended tax forms Box 3—Employee Contributions. Irs amended tax forms   This is the amount of taxes withheld from the railroad employee's earnings that exceeds the amount of taxes that would have been withheld had the earnings been covered under the social security system. Irs amended tax forms This amount is the employee's cost that you use to figure the tax-free part of the NSSEB and tier 2 benefit you received (the amount shown in box 4). Irs amended tax forms (For information on how to figure the tax-free part, see Partly Taxable Payments under Taxation of Periodic Payments, later. Irs amended tax forms ) The amount shown is the total employee contribution amount, not reduced by any amounts that the RRB calculated as previously recovered. Irs amended tax forms It is the latest amount reported for 2013 and may have increased or decreased from a previous Form RRB-1099-R. Irs amended tax forms If this amount has changed, the change is retroactive. Irs amended tax forms You may need to refigure the tax-free part of your NSSEB/tier 2 benefit for 2013 and prior tax years. Irs amended tax forms If this box is blank, it means that the amount of your NSSEB and tier 2 payments shown in box 4 is fully taxable. Irs amended tax forms    If you had a previous annuity entitlement that ended and you are figuring the tax-free part of your NSSEB/tier 2 benefit for your current annuity entitlement, you should contact the RRB for confirmation of your correct employee contribution amount. Irs amended tax forms Box 4—Contributory Amount Paid. Irs amended tax forms   This is the gross amount of the NSSEB and tier 2 benefit you received in 2013, less any 2013 benefits you repaid in 2013. Irs amended tax forms (Any benefits you repaid in 2013 for an earlier year or for an unknown year are shown in box 8. Irs amended tax forms ) This amount is the total contributory pension paid in 2013. Irs amended tax forms It may be partly taxable and partly tax free or fully taxable. Irs amended tax forms If you determine you are eligible to compute a tax-free part as explained later in Partly Taxable Payments under Taxation of Periodic Payments, use the latest reported employee contribution amount shown in box 3 as the cost. Irs amended tax forms Box 5—Vested Dual Benefit. Irs amended tax forms   This is the gross amount of vested dual benefit (VDB) payments paid in 2013, less any 2013 VDB payments you repaid in 2013. Irs amended tax forms It is fully taxable. Irs amended tax forms VDB payments you repaid in 2013 for an earlier year or for an unknown year are shown in box 8. Irs amended tax forms Note. Irs amended tax forms The amounts shown in boxes 4 and 5 may represent payments for 2013 and/or other years after 1983. Irs amended tax forms Box 6—Supplemental Annuity. Irs amended tax forms   This is the gross amount of supplemental annuity benefits paid in 2013, less any 2013 supplemental annuity benefits you repaid in 2013. Irs amended tax forms It is fully taxable. Irs amended tax forms Supplemental annuity benefits you repaid in 2013 for an earlier year or for an unknown year are shown in box 8. Irs amended tax forms Box 7—Total Gross Paid. Irs amended tax forms   This is the sum of boxes 4, 5, and 6. Irs amended tax forms The amount represents the total pension paid in 2013. Irs amended tax forms Include this amount on Form 1040, line 16a; Form 1040A, line 12a; or Form 1040NR, line 17a. Irs amended tax forms Box 8—Repayments. Irs amended tax forms   This amount represents any NSSEB, tier 2 benefit, VDB, and supplemental annuity benefit you repaid to the RRB in 2013 for years before 2013 or for unknown years. Irs amended tax forms The amount shown in this box has not been deducted from the amounts shown in boxes 4, 5, and 6. Irs amended tax forms It only includes repayments of benefits that were taxable to you. Irs amended tax forms This means it only includes repayments in 2013 of NSSEB benefits paid after 1985, tier 2 and VDB benefits paid after 1983, and supplemental annuity benefits paid in any year. Irs amended tax forms If you included the benefits in your income in the year you received them, you may be able to deduct the repaid amount. Irs amended tax forms For more information about repayments, see Repayment of benefits received in an earlier year , later. Irs amended tax forms    You may have repaid an overpayment of benefits by returning a payment, by making a payment, or by having an amount withheld from your railroad retirement annuity payment. Irs amended tax forms Box 9—Federal Income Tax Withheld. Irs amended tax forms   This is the total federal income tax withheld from your NSSEB, tier 2 benefit, VDB, and supplemental annuity benefit. Irs amended tax forms Include this on your income tax return as tax withheld. Irs amended tax forms If you are a nonresident alien and your tax withholding rate and/or country of legal residence changed during 2013, you will receive more than one Form RRB-1099-R for 2013. Irs amended tax forms Determine the total amount of U. Irs amended tax forms S. Irs amended tax forms federal income tax withheld from your 2013 RRB NSSEB, tier 2, VDB, and supplemental annuity payments by adding the amounts in box 9 of all original 2013 Forms RRB-1099-R, or the latest corrected or duplicate Forms RRB-1099-R you receive. Irs amended tax forms Box 10—Rate of Tax. Irs amended tax forms   If you are taxed as a U. Irs amended tax forms S. Irs amended tax forms citizen or resident alien, this box does not apply to you. Irs amended tax forms If you are a nonresident alien, an entry in this box indicates the rate at which tax was withheld on the NSSEB, tier 2, VDB, and supplemental annuity payments that were paid to you in 2013. Irs amended tax forms If you are a nonresident alien whose tax was withheld at more than one rate during 2013, you will receive a separate Form RRB-1099-R for each rate change during 2013. Irs amended tax forms Box 11—Country. Irs amended tax forms   If you are taxed as a U. Irs amended tax forms S. Irs amended tax forms citizen or resident alien, this box does not apply to you. Irs amended tax forms If you are a nonresident alien, an entry in this box indicates the country of which you were a resident for tax purposes at the time you received railroad retirement payments in 2013. Irs amended tax forms If you are a nonresident alien who was a resident of more than one country during 2013, you will receive a separate Form RRB-1099-R for each country of residence during 2013. Irs amended tax forms Box 12—Medicare Premium Total. Irs amended tax forms   This is for information purposes only. Irs amended tax forms The amount shown in this box represents the total amount of Part B Medicare premiums deducted from your railroad retirement annuity payments in 2013. Irs amended tax forms Medicare premium refunds are not included in the Medicare total. Irs amended tax forms The Medicare total is normally shown on Form RRB-1099 (if you are a citizen or resident alien of the United States) or Form RRB-1042S (if you are a nonresident alien). Irs amended tax forms However, if Form RRB-1099 or Form RRB-1042S is not required for 2013, then this total will be shown on Form RRB-1099-R. Irs amended tax forms If your Medicare premiums were deducted from your social security benefits, paid by a third party, refunded to you, and/or you paid the premiums by direct billing, your Medicare total will not be shown in this box. Irs amended tax forms Repayment of benefits received in an earlier year. Irs amended tax forms   If you had to repay any railroad retirement benefits that you had included in your income in an earlier year because at that time you thought you had an unrestricted right to it, you can deduct the amount you repaid in the year in which you repaid it. Irs amended tax forms   If you repaid $3,000 or less in 2013, deduct it on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 23. Irs amended tax forms The 2%-of-adjusted-gross-income limit applies to this deduction. Irs amended tax forms You cannot take this deduction if you file Form 1040A. Irs amended tax forms    If you repaid more than $3,000 in 2013, you can either take a deduction for the amount repaid on Schedule A (Form 1040), line 28 or you can take a credit against your tax. Irs amended tax forms For more information, see Repayments in Publication 525. Irs amended tax forms Withholding Tax and Estimated Tax Your retirement plan distributions are subject to federal income tax withholding. Irs amended tax forms However, you can choose not to have tax withheld on payments you receive unless they are eligible rollover distributions. Irs amended tax forms (These are distributions, described later under Rollovers, that are eligible for rollover treatment but are not paid directly to another qualified retirement plan or to a traditional IRA. Irs amended tax forms ) If you choose not to have tax withheld or if you do not have enough tax withheld, you may have to make estimated tax payments. Irs amended tax forms See Estimated tax , later. Irs amended tax forms The withholding rules apply to the taxable part of payments you receive from: An employer pension, annuity, profit-sharing, or stock bonus plan, Any other deferred compensation plan, A traditional individual retirement arrangement (IRA), or A commercial annuity. Irs amended tax forms For this purpose, a commercial annuity means an annuity, endowment, or life insurance contract issued by an insurance company. Irs amended tax forms There will be no withholding on any part of a distribution where it is reasonable to believe that it will not be includible in gross income. Irs amended tax forms Choosing no withholding. Irs amended tax forms   You can choose not to have income tax withheld from retirement plan payments unless they are eligible rollover distributions. Irs amended tax forms You can make this choice on Form W-4P for periodic and nonperiodic payments. Irs amended tax forms This choice generally remains in effect until you revoke it. Irs amended tax forms   The payer will ignore your choice not to have tax withheld if: You do not give the payer your social security number (in the required manner), or The IRS notifies the payer, before the payment is made, that you gave an incorrect social security number. Irs amended tax forms   To choose not to have tax withheld, a U. Irs amended tax forms S. Irs amended tax forms citizen or resident alien must give the payer a home address in the United States or its possessions. Irs amended tax forms Without that address, the payer must withhold tax. Irs amended tax forms For example, the payer has to withhold tax if the recipient has provided a U. Irs amended tax forms S. Irs amended tax forms address for a nominee, trustee, or agent to whom the benefits are delivered, but has not provided his or her own U. Irs amended tax forms S. Irs amended tax forms home address. Irs amended tax forms   If you do not give the payer a home address in the United States or its possessions, you can choose not to have tax withheld only if you certify to the payer that you are not a U. Irs amended tax forms S. Irs amended tax forms citizen, a U. Irs amended tax forms S. Irs amended tax forms resident alien, or someone who left the country to avoid tax. Irs amended tax forms But if you so certify, you may be subject to the 30% flat rate withholding that applies to nonresident aliens. Irs amended tax forms This 30% rate will not apply if you are exempt or subject to a reduced rate by treaty. Irs amended tax forms For details, get Publication 519. Irs amended tax forms Periodic payments. Irs amended tax forms   Unless you choose no withholding, your annuity or similar periodic payments (other than eligible rollover distributions) will be treated like wages for withholding purposes. Irs amended tax forms Periodic payments are amounts paid at regular intervals (such as weekly, monthly, or yearly) for a period of time greater than one year (such as for 15 years or for life). Irs amended tax forms You should give the payer a completed withholding certificate (Form W-4P or a similar form provided by the payer). Irs amended tax forms If you do not, tax will be withheld as if you were married and claiming three withholding allowances. Irs amended tax forms   Tax will be withheld as if you were single and were claiming no withholding allowances if: You do not give the payer your social security number (in the required manner), or The IRS notifies the payer (before any payment is made) that you gave an incorrect social security number. Irs amended tax forms   You must file a new withholding certificate to change the amount of withholding. Irs amended tax forms Nonperiodic distributions. Irs amended tax forms    Unless you choose no withholding, the withholding rate for a nonperiodic distribution (a payment other than a periodic payment) that is not an eligible rollover distribution is 10% of the distribution. Irs amended tax forms You can also ask the payer to withhold an additional amount using Form W-4P. Irs amended tax forms The part of any loan treated as a distribution (except an offset amount to repay the loan), explained later, is subject to withholding under this rule. Irs amended tax forms Eligible rollover distribution. Irs amended tax forms    If you receive an eligible rollover distribution, 20% of it generally will be withheld for income tax. Irs amended tax forms You cannot choose not to have tax withheld from an eligible rollover distribution. Irs amended tax forms However, tax will not be withheld if you have the plan administrator pay the eligible rollover distribution directly to another qualified plan or an IRA in a direct rollover. Irs amended tax forms For more information about eligible rollover distributions, see Rollovers , later. Irs amended tax forms Estimated tax. Irs amended tax forms   Your estimated tax is the total of your expected income tax, self-employment tax, and certain other taxes for the year, minus your expected credits and withheld tax. Irs amended tax forms Generally, you must make estimated tax payments for 2014 if you expect to owe at least $1,000 in tax (after subtracting your withholding and credits) and you expect your withholding and credits to be less than the smaller of: 90% of the tax to be shown on your 2014 return, or 100% of the tax shown on your 2013 return. Irs amended tax forms If your adjusted gross income for 2013 was more than $150,000 ($75,000 if your filing status for 2014 is married filing separately), substitute 110% for 100% in (2) above. Irs amended tax forms For more information, get Publication 505, Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax. Irs amended tax forms In figuring your withholding or estimated tax, remember that a part of your monthly social security or equivalent tier 1 railroad retirement benefits may be taxable. Irs amended tax forms See Publication 915. Irs amended tax forms You can choose to have income tax withheld from those benefits. Irs amended tax forms Use Form W-4V to make this choice. Irs amended tax forms Cost (Investment in the Contract) Distributions from your pension or annuity plan may include amounts treated as a recovery of your cost (investment in the contract). Irs amended tax forms If any part of a distribution is treated as a recovery of your cost under the rules explained in this publication, that part is tax free. Irs amended tax forms Therefore, the first step in figuring how much of a distribution is taxable is to determine the cost of your pension or annuity. Irs amended tax forms In general, your cost is your net investment in the contract as of the annuity starting date (or the date of the distribution, if earlier). Irs amended tax forms To find this amount, you must first figure the total premiums, contributions, or other amounts you paid. Irs amended tax forms This includes the amounts your employer contributed that were taxable to you when paid. Irs amended tax forms (However, see Foreign employment contributions , later. Irs amended tax forms ) It does not include amounts withheld from your pay on a tax-deferred basis (money that was taken out of your gross pay before taxes were deducted). Irs amended tax forms It also does not include amounts you contributed for health and accident benefits (including any additional premiums paid for double indemnity or disability benefits). Irs amended tax forms From this total cost you must subtract the following amounts. Irs amended tax forms Any refunded premiums, rebates, dividends, or unrepaid loans that were not included in your income and that you received by the later of the annuity starting date or the date on which you received your first payment. Irs amended tax forms Any other tax-free amounts you received under the contract or plan by the later of the dates in (1). Irs amended tax forms If you must use the Simplified Method for your annuity payments, the tax-free part of any single-sum payment received in connection with the start of the annuity payments, regardless of when you received it. Irs amended tax forms (See Simplified Method , later, for information on its required use. Irs amended tax forms ) If you use the General Rule for your annuity payments, the value of the refund feature in your annuity contract. Irs amended tax forms (See General Rule , later, for information on its use. Irs amended tax forms ) Your annuity contract has a refund feature if the annuity payments are for your life (or the lives of you and your survivor) and payments in the nature of a refund of the annuity's cost will be made to your beneficiary or estate if all annuitants die before a stated amount or a stated number of payments are made. Irs amended tax forms For more information, see Publication 939. Irs amended tax forms The tax treatment of the items described in (1) through (3) is discussed later under Taxation of Nonperiodic Payments . Irs amended tax forms Form 1099-R. Irs amended tax forms If you began receiving periodic payments of a life annuity in 2013, the payer should show your total contributions to the plan in box 9b of your 2013 Form 1099-R. Irs amended tax forms Annuity starting date defined. Irs amended tax forms   Your annuity starting date is the later of the first day of the first period for which you received a payment or the date the plan's obligations became fixed. Irs amended tax forms Example. Irs amended tax forms On January 1, you completed all your payments required under an annuity contract providing for monthly payments starting on August 1 for the period beginning July 1. Irs amended tax forms The annuity starting date is July 1. Irs amended tax forms This is the date you use in figuring the cost of the contract and selecting the appropriate number from Table 1 for line 3 of the Simplified Method Worksheet. Irs amended tax forms Designated Roth accounts. Irs amended tax forms   Your cost in these accounts is your designated Roth contributions that were included in your income as wages subject to applicable withholding requirements. Irs amended tax forms Your cost will also include any in-plan Roth rollovers you included in income. Irs amended tax forms Foreign employment contributions. Irs amended tax forms   If you worked abroad, your cost may include contributions by your employer to the retirement plan, but only if those contributions would be excludible from your gross income had they been paid directly to you as compensation. Irs amended tax forms The contributions that apply are: Contributions before 1963 by your employer, Contributions after 1962 by your employer if the contributions would be excludible from your gross income (not including the foreign earned income exclusion) had they been paid directly to you, or Contributions after 1996 by your employer if you performed the services of a foreign missionary (a duly ordained, commissioned, or licensed minister of a church or a lay person) but only if the contributions would be excludible from your gross income had they been paid directly to you. Irs amended tax forms Foreign employment contributions while a nonresident alien. Irs amended tax forms   In determining your cost, special rules apply if you are a U. Irs amended tax forms S. Irs amended tax forms citizen or resident alien who received distributions in 2013 from a plan to which contributions were made while you were a nonresident alien. Irs amended tax forms Your contributions and your employer's contributions are not included in your cost if the contribution: Was made based on compensation which was for services performed outside the United States while you were a nonresident alien, and Was not subject to income tax under the laws of the United States or any foreign country, but only if the contribution would have been subject to income tax if paid as cash compensation when the services were performed. Irs amended tax forms Taxation of Periodic Payments This section explains how the periodic payments you receive from a pension or annuity plan are taxed. Irs amended tax forms Periodic payments are amounts paid at regular intervals (such as weekly, monthly, or yearly) for a period of time greater than one year (such as for 15 years or for life). Irs amended tax forms These payments are also known as amounts received as an annuity. Irs amended tax forms If you receive an amount from your plan that is not a periodic payment, see Taxation of Nonperiodic Payments , later. Irs amended tax forms In general, you can recover the cost of your pension or annuity tax free over the period you are to receive the payments. Irs amended tax forms The amount of each payment that is more than the part that represents your cost is taxable (however, see Insurance Premiums for Retired Public Safety Officers , earlier). Irs amended tax forms Designated Roth accounts. Irs amended tax forms   If you receive a qualified distribution from a designated Roth account, the distribution is not included in your gross income. Irs amended tax forms This applies to both your cost in the account and income earned on that account. Irs amended tax forms A qualified distribution is generally a distribution that is: Made after a 5-tax-year period of participation, and Made on or after the date you reach age 59½, made to a beneficiary or your estate on or after your death, or attributable to your being disabled. Irs amended tax forms   If the distribution is not a qualified distribution, the rules discussed in this section apply. Irs amended tax forms The designated Roth account is treated as a separate contract. Irs amended tax forms Period of participation. Irs amended tax forms   The 5-tax-year period of participation is the 5-tax-year period beginning with the first tax year for which the participant made a designated Roth contribution to the plan. Irs amended tax forms Therefore, for designated Roth contributions made for 2013, the first year for which a qualified distribution can be made is 2018. Irs amended tax forms   However, if a direct rollover is made to the plan from a designated Roth account under another plan, the 5-tax-year period for the recipient plan begins with the first tax year for which the participant first had designated Roth contributions made to the other plan. Irs amended tax forms   Your 401(k), 403(b), or 457(b) plan may permit you to roll over amounts from those plans to a designated Roth account within the same plan. Irs amended tax forms This is known as an in-plan Roth rollover. Irs amended tax forms For more details, see In-plan Roth rollovers , later. Irs amended tax forms Fully Taxable Payments The pension or annuity payments that you receive are fully taxable if you have no cost in the contract because any of the following situations applies to you (however, see Insurance Premiums for Retired Public Safety Officers , earlier). Irs amended tax forms You did not pay anything or are not considered to have paid anything for your pension or annuity. Irs amended tax forms Amounts withheld from your pay on a tax-deferred basis are not considered part of the cost of the pension or annuity payment. Irs amended tax forms Your employer did not withhold contributions from your salary. Irs amended tax forms You got back all of your contributions tax free in prior years (however, see Exclusion not limited to cost under Partly Taxable Payments, later). Irs amended tax forms Report the total amount you got on Form 1040, line 16b; Form 1040A, line 12b; or on Form 1040NR, line 17b. Irs amended tax forms You should make no entry on Form 1040, line 16a; Form 1040A, line 12a; or Form 1040NR, line 17a. Irs amended tax forms Deductible voluntary employee contributions. Irs amended tax forms   Distributions you receive that are based on your accumulated deductible voluntary employee contributions are generally fully taxable in the year distributed to you. Irs amended tax forms Accumulated deductible voluntary employee contributions include net earnings on the contributions. Irs amended tax forms If distributed as part of a lump sum, they do not qualify for the 10-year tax option or capital gain treatment, explained later. Irs amended tax forms Partly Taxable Payments If you have a cost to recover from your pension or annuity plan (see Cost (Investment in the Contract) , earlier), you can exclude part of each annuity payment from income as a recovery of your cost. Irs amended tax forms This tax-free part of the payment is figured when your annuity starts and remains the same each year, even if the amount of the payment changes. Irs amended tax forms The rest of each payment is taxable (however, see Insurance Premiums for Retired Public Safety Officers , earlier). Irs amended tax forms You figure the tax-free part of the payment using one of the following methods. Irs amended tax forms Simplified Method. Irs amended tax forms You generally must use this method if your annuity is paid under a qualified plan (a qualified employee plan, a qualified employee annuity, or a tax-sheltered annuity plan or contract). Irs amended tax forms You cannot use this method if your annuity is paid under a nonqualified plan. Irs amended tax forms General Rule. Irs amended tax forms You must use this method if your annuity is paid under a nonqualified plan. Irs amended tax forms You generally cannot use this method if your annuity is paid under a qualified plan. Irs amended tax forms You determine which method to use when you first begin receiving your annuity, and you continue using it each year that you recover part of your cost. Irs amended tax forms If you had more than one partly taxable pension or annuity, figure the tax-free part and the taxable part of each separately. Irs amended tax forms Qualified plan annuity starting before November 19, 1996. Irs amended tax forms   If your annuity is paid under a qualified plan and your annuity starting date (defined earlier under Cost (Investment in the Contract) ) is after July 1, 1986, and before November 19, 1996, you could have chosen to use either the Simplified Method or the General Rule. Irs amended tax forms If your annuity starting date is before July 2, 1986, you use the General Rule unless your annuity qualified for the Three-Year Rule. Irs amended tax forms If you used the Three-Year Rule (which was repealed for annuities starting after July 1, 1986), your annuity payments are generally now fully taxable. Irs amended tax forms Exclusion limit. Irs amended tax forms   Your annuity starting date determines the total amount of annuity payments that you can exclude from income over the years. Irs amended tax forms Once your annuity starting date is determined, it does not change. Irs amended tax forms If you calculate the taxable portion of your annuity payments using the simplified method worksheet, the annuity starting date determines the recovery period for your cost. Irs amended tax forms That recovery period begins on your annuity starting date and is not affected by the date you first complete the worksheet. Irs amended tax forms Exclusion limited to cost. Irs amended tax forms   If your annuity starting date is after 1986, the total amount of annuity income that you can exclude over the years as a recovery of the cost cannot exceed your total cost. Irs amended tax forms Any unrecovered cost at your (or the last annuitant's) death is allowed as a miscellaneous itemized deduction on the final return of the decedent. Irs amended tax forms This deduction is not subject to the 2%-of-adjusted-gross-income limit. Irs amended tax forms Example 1. Irs amended tax forms Your annuity starting date is after 1986, and you exclude $100 a month ($1,200 a year) under the Simplified Method. Irs amended tax forms The total cost of your annuity is $12,000. Irs amended tax forms Your exclusion ends when you have recovered your cost tax free, that is, after 10 years (120 months). Irs amended tax forms After that, your annuity payments are generally fully taxable. Irs amended tax forms Example 2. Irs amended tax forms The facts are the same as in Example 1, except you die (with no surviving annuitant) after the eighth year of retirement. Irs amended tax forms You have recovered tax free only $9,600 (8 × $1,200) of your cost. Irs amended tax forms An itemized deduction for your unrecovered cost of $2,400 ($12,000 – $9,600) can be taken on your final return. Irs amended tax forms Exclusion not limited to cost. Irs amended tax forms   If your annuity starting date is before 1987, you can continue to take your monthly exclusion for as long as you receive your annuity. Irs amended tax forms If you chose a joint and survivor annuity, your survivor can continue to take the survivor's exclusion figured as of the annuity starting date. Irs amended tax forms The total exclusion may be more than your cost. Irs amended tax forms Simplified Method Under the Simplified Method, you figure the tax-free part of each annuity payment by dividing your cost by the total number of anticipated monthly payments. Irs amended tax forms For an annuity that is payable for the lives of the annuitants, this number is based on the annuitants' ages on the annuity starting date and is determined from a table. Irs amended tax forms For any other annuity, this number is the number of monthly annuity payments under the contract. Irs amended tax forms Who must use the Simplified Method. Irs amended tax forms   You must use the Simplified Method if your annuity starting date is after November 18, 1996, and you meet both of the following conditions. Irs amended tax forms You receive your pension or annuity payments from any of the following plans. Irs amended tax forms A qualified employee plan. Irs amended tax forms A qualified employee annuity. Irs amended tax forms A tax-sheltered annuity plan (403(b) plan). Irs amended tax forms On your annuity starting date, at least one of the following conditions applies to you. Irs amended tax forms You are under age 75. Irs amended tax forms You are entitled to less than 5 years of guaranteed payments. Irs amended tax forms Guaranteed payments. Irs amended tax forms   Your annuity contract provides guaranteed payments if a minimum number of payments or a minimum amount (for example, the amount of your investment) is payable even if you and any survivor annuitant do not live to receive the minimum. Irs amended tax forms If the minimum amount is less than the total amount of the payments you are to receive, barring death, during the first 5 years after payments begin (figured by ignoring any payment increases), you are entitled to less than 5 years of guaranteed payments. Irs amended tax forms Annuity starting before November 19, 1996. Irs amended tax forms   If your annuity starting date is after July 1, 1986, and before November 19, 1996, and you chose to use the Simplified Method, you must continue to use it each year that you recover part of your cost. Irs amended tax forms You could have chosen to use the Simplified Method if your annuity is payable for your life (or the lives of you and your survivor annuitant) and you met both of the conditions listed earlier under Who must use the Simplified Method . Irs amended tax forms Who cannot use the Simplified Method. Irs amended tax forms   You cannot use the Simplified Method if you receive your pension or annuity from a nonqualified plan or otherwise do not meet the conditions described in the preceding discussion. Irs amended tax forms See General Rule , later. Irs amended tax forms How to use the Simplified Method. Irs amended tax forms    Complete Worksheet A in the back of this publication to figure your taxable annuity for 2013. Irs amended tax forms Be sure to keep the completed worksheet; it will help you figure your taxable annuity next year. Irs amended tax forms   To complete line 3 of the worksheet, you must determine the total number of expected monthly payments for your annuity. Irs amended tax forms How you do this depends on whether the annuity is for a single life, multiple lives, or a fixed period. Irs amended tax forms For this purpose, treat an annuity that is payable over the life of an annuitant as payable for that annuitant's life even if the annuity has a fixed-period feature or also provides a temporary annuity payable to the annuitant's child under age 25. Irs amended tax forms    You do not need to complete line 3 of the worksheet or make the computation on line 4 if you received annuity payments last year and used last year's worksheet to figure your taxable annuity. Irs amended tax forms Instead, enter the amount from line 4 of last year's worksheet on line 4 of this year's worksheet. Irs amended tax forms Single-life annuity. Irs amended tax forms   If your annuity is payable for your life alone, use Table 1 at the bottom of the worksheet to determine the total number of expected monthly payments. Irs amended tax forms Enter on line 3 the number shown for your age on your annuity starting date. Irs amended tax forms This number will differ depending on whether your annuity starting date is before November 19, 1996, or after November 18, 1996. Irs amended tax forms Multiple-lives annuity. Irs amended tax forms   If your annuity is payable for the lives of more than one annuitant, use Table 2 at the bottom of the worksheet to determine the total number of expected monthly payments. Irs amended tax forms Enter on line 3 the number shown for the annuitants' combined ages on the annuity starting date. Irs amended tax forms For an annuity payable to you as the primary annuitant and to more than one survivor annuitant, combine your age and the age of the youngest survivor annuitant. Irs amended tax forms For an annuity that has no primary annuitant and is payable to you and others as survivor annuitants, combine the ages of the oldest and youngest annuitants. Irs amended tax forms Do not treat as a survivor annuitant anyone whose entitlement to payments depends on an event other than the primary annuitant's death. Irs amended tax forms   However, if your annuity starting date is before 1998, do not use Table 2 and do not combine the annuitants' ages. Irs amended tax forms Instead, you must use Table 1 at the bottom of the worksheet and enter on line 3 the number shown for the primary annuitant's age on the annuity starting date. Irs amended tax forms This number will differ depending on whether your annuity starting date is before November 19, 1996, or after November 18, 1996. Irs amended tax forms Fixed-period annuity. Irs amended tax forms   If your annuity does not depend in whole or in part on anyone's life expectancy, the total number of expected monthly payments to enter on line 3 of the worksheet is the number of monthly annuity payments under the contract. Irs amended tax forms Line 6. Irs amended tax forms   The amount on line 6 should include all amounts that could have been recovered in prior years. Irs amended tax forms If you did not recover an amount in a prior year, you may be able to amend your returns for the affected years. Irs amended tax forms Example. Irs amended tax forms Bill Smith, age 65, began receiving retirement benefits in 2013 under a joint and survivor annuity. Irs amended tax forms Bill's annuity starting date is January 1, 2013. Irs amended tax forms The benefits are to be paid for the joint lives of Bill and his wife, Kathy, age 65. Irs amended tax forms Bill had contributed $31,000 to a qualified plan and had received no distributions before the annuity starting date. Irs amended tax forms Bill is to receive a retirement benefit of $1,200 a month, and Kathy is to receive a monthly survivor benefit of $600 upon Bill's death. Irs amended tax forms Bill must use the Simplified Method to figure his taxable annuity because his payments are from a qualified plan and he is under age 75. Irs amended tax forms Because his annuity is payable over the lives of more than one annuitant, he uses his and Kathy's combined ages and Table 2 at the bottom of Worksheet A in completing line 3 of the worksheet. Irs amended tax forms His completed worksheet is shown later. Irs amended tax forms Bill's tax-free monthly amount is $100 ($31,000 ÷ 310) as shown on line 4 of the worksheet. Irs amended tax forms Upon Bill's death, if Bill has not recovered the full $31,000 investment, Kathy will also exclude $100 from her $600 monthly payment. Irs amended tax forms The full amount of any annuity payments received after 310 payments are paid must be included in gross income. Irs amended tax forms If Bill and Kathy die before 310 payments are made, a miscellaneous itemized deduction will be allowed for the unrecovered cost on the final income tax return of the last to die. Irs amended tax forms This deduction is not subject to the 2%-of-adjusted-gross-income limit. Irs amended tax forms Worksheet A. Irs amended tax forms Simplified Method Worksheet for Bill Smith 1.

Irs amended tax forms   If you and one or more other annuitants receive payments at the same time, you exclude from each annuity payment a pro rata share of the monthly tax-free amount. Irs amended tax forms Figure your share by taking the following steps. Irs amended tax forms Complete your worksheet through line 4 to figure the monthly tax-free amount. Irs amended tax forms Divide the amount of your monthly payment by the total amount of the monthly payments to all annuitants. Irs amended tax forms Multiply the amount on line 4 of your worksheet by the amount figured in (2) above. Irs amended tax forms The result is your share of the monthly tax-free amount. Irs amended tax forms   Replace the amount on line 4 of the worksheet with the result in (3) above. Irs amended tax forms Enter that amount on line 4 of your worksheet each year. Irs amended tax forms General Rule Under the General Rule, you determine the tax-free part of each annuity payment based on the ratio of the cost of the contract to the total expected return. Irs amended tax forms Expected return is the total amount you and other eligible annuitants can expect to receive under the contract. Irs amended tax forms To figure it, you must use life expectancy (actuarial) tables prescribed by the IRS. Irs amended tax forms Who must use the General Rule. Irs amended tax forms   You must use the General Rule if you receive pension or annuity payments from: A nonqualified plan (such as a private annuity, a purchased commercial annuity, or a nonqualified employee plan), or A qualified plan if you are age 75 or older on your annuity starting date and your annuity payments are guaranteed for at least 5 years. Irs amended tax forms Annuity starting before November 19, 1996. Irs amended tax forms   If your annuity starting date is after July 1, 1986, and before November 19, 1996, you had to use the General Rule for either circumstance just described. Irs amended tax forms You also had to use it for any fixed-period annuity. Irs amended tax forms If you did not have to use the General Rule, you could have chosen to use it. Irs amended tax forms If your annuity starting date is before July 2, 1986, you had to use the General Rule unless you could use the Three-Year Rule. Irs amended tax forms   If you had to use the General Rule (or chose to use it), you must continue to use it each year that you recover your cost. Irs amended tax forms Who cannot use the General Rule. Irs amended tax forms   You cannot use the General Rule if you receive your pension or annuity from a qualified plan and none of the circumstances described in the preceding discussions apply to you. Irs amended tax forms See Simplified Method , earlier. Irs amended tax forms More information. Irs amended tax forms   For complete information on using the General Rule, including the actuarial tables you need, see Publication 939. Irs amended tax forms Taxation of Nonperiodic Payments This section of the publication explains how any nonperiodic distributions you receive under a pension or annuity plan are taxed. Irs amended tax forms Nonperiodic distributions are also known as amounts not received as an annuity. Irs amended tax forms They include all payments other than periodic payments and corrective distributions. Irs amended tax forms For example, the following items are treated as nonperiodic distributions. Irs amended tax forms Cash withdrawals. Irs amended tax forms Distributions of current earnings (dividends) on your investment. Irs amended tax forms However, do not include these distributions in your income to the extent the insurer keeps them to pay premiums or other consideration for the contract. Irs amended tax forms Certain loans. Irs amended tax forms See Loans Treated as Distributions , later. Irs amended tax forms The value of annuity contracts transferred without full and adequate consideration. Irs amended tax forms See Transfers of Annuity Contracts , later. Irs amended tax forms Corrective distributions of excess plan contributions. Irs amended tax forms   Generally, if the contributions made for you during the year to certain retirement plans exceed certain limits, the excess is taxable to you. Irs amended tax forms To correct an excess, your plan may distribute it to you (along with any income earned on the excess). Irs amended tax forms Although the plan reports the corrective distributions on Form 1099-R, the distribution is not treated as a nonperiodic distribution from the plan. Irs amended tax forms It is not subject to the allocation rules explained in the following discussion, it cannot be rolled over into another plan, and it is not subject to the additional tax on early distributions. Irs amended tax forms    If your retirement plan made a corrective distribution of excess amounts (excess deferrals, excess contributions, or excess annual additions), your Form 1099-R should have the code “8,” “B,” “P,” or “E” in box 7. Irs amended tax forms   For information on plan contribution limits and how to report corrective distributions of excess contributions, see Retirement Plan Contributions under Employee Compensation in Publication 525. Irs amended tax forms Figuring the Taxable Amount How you figure the taxable amount of a nonperiodic distribution depends on whether it is made before the annuity starting date, or on or after the annuity starting date. Irs amended tax forms If it is made before the annuity starting date, its tax treatment also depends on whether it is made under a qualified or nonqualified plan. Irs amended tax forms If it is made under a nonqualified plan, its tax treatment depends on whether it fully discharges the contract, is received under certain life insurance or endowment contracts, or is allocable to an investment you made before August 14, 1982. Irs amended tax forms You may be able to roll over the taxable amount of a nonperiodic distribution from a qualified retirement plan into another qualified retirement plan or a traditional IRA tax free. Irs amended tax forms See Rollovers, later. Irs amended tax forms If you do not make a tax-free rollover and the distribution qualifies as a lump-sum distribution, you may be able to elect an optional method of figuring the tax on the taxable amount. Irs amended tax forms See Lump-Sum Distributions, later. Irs amended tax forms Annuity starting date. Irs amended tax forms   The annuity starting date is either the first day of the first period for which you receive an annuity payment under the contract or the date on which the obligation under the contract becomes fixed, whichever is later. Irs amended tax forms Distributions of employer securities. Irs amended tax forms    If you receive a distribution of employer securities from a qualified retirement plan, you may be able to defer the tax on the net unrealized appreciation (NUA) in the securities. Irs amended tax forms The NUA is the net increase in the securities' value while they were in the trust. Irs amended tax forms This tax deferral applies to distributions of the employer corporation's stocks, bonds, registered debentures, and debentures with interest coupons attached. Irs amended tax forms   If the distribution is a lump-sum distribution, tax is deferred on all of the NUA unless you choose to include it in your income for the year of the distribution. Irs amended tax forms    A lump-sum distribution for this purpose is the distribution or payment of a plan participant's entire balance (within a single tax year) from all of the employer's qualified plans of one kind (pension, profit-sharing, or stock bonus plans), but only if paid: Because of the plan participant's death, After the participant reaches age 59½, Because the participant, if an employee, separates from service, or After the participant, if a self-employed individual, becomes totally and permanently disabled. Irs amended tax forms    If you choose to include NUA in your income for the year of the distribution and the participant was born before January 2, 1936, you may be able to figure the tax on the NUA using the optional methods described und
