in this chapter. 1040ez 2013 Net Investment Income Tax. 1040ez 2013  For purposes of the Net Investment Income Tax (NIIT), net investment income does not include distributions from a qualified retirement plan (for example, 401(a), 403(a), 403(b), 457(b) plans, and IRAs). 1040ez 2013 However, these distributions are taken into account when determining the modified adjusted gross income threshold. 1040ez 2013 Distributions from a nonqualified retirement plan are included in net investment income. 1040ez 2013 See Form 8960, Net Investment Income Tax—Individuals, Estates, and Trusts, and its instructions for more information. 1040ez 2013 What's New for 2014 Modified AGI limit for Roth IRA contributions increased. 1040ez 2013  For 2014, your Roth IRA contribution limit is reduced (phased out) in the following situations. 1040ez 2013 Your filing status is married filing jointly or qualifying widow(er) and your modified AGI is at least $181,000. 1040ez 2013 You cannot make a Roth IRA contribution if your modified AGI is $191,000 or more. 1040ez 2013 Your filing status is single, head of household, or married filing separately and you did not live with your spouse at any time in 2014 and your modified AGI is at least $114,000. 1040ez 2013 You cannot make a Roth IRA contribution if your modified AGI is $129,000 or more. 1040ez 2013 Your filing status is married filing separately, you lived with your spouse at any time during the year, and your modified AGI is more than -0-. 1040ez 2013 You cannot make a Roth IRA contribution if your modified AGI is $10,000 or more. 1040ez 2013 Reminders Deemed IRAs. 1040ez 2013  For plan years beginning after 2002, a qualified employer plan (retirement plan) can maintain a separate account or annuity under the plan (a deemed IRA) to receive voluntary employee contributions. 1040ez 2013 If the separate account or annuity otherwise meets the requirements of an IRA, it will be subject only to IRA rules. 1040ez 2013 An employee's account can be treated as a traditional IRA or a Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 For this purpose, a “qualified employer plan” includes: A qualified pension, profit-sharing, or stock bonus plan (section 401(a) plan), A qualified employee annuity plan (section 403(a) plan), A tax-sheltered annuity plan (section 403(b) plan), and A deferred compensation plan (section 457 plan) maintained by a state, a political subdivision of a state, or an agency or instrumentality of a state or political subdivision of a state. 1040ez 2013 Designated Roth accounts. 1040ez 2013  Designated Roth accounts are separate accounts under 401(k), 403(b), or 457(b) plans that accept elective deferrals that are referred to as Roth contributions. 1040ez 2013 These elective deferrals are included in your income, but qualified distributions from these accounts are not included in your income. 1040ez 2013 Designated Roth accounts are not IRAs and should not be confused with Roth IRAs. 1040ez 2013 Contributions, up to their respective limits, can be made to Roth IRAs and designated Roth accounts according to your eligibility to participate. 1040ez 2013 A contribution to one does not impact your eligibility to contribute to the other. 1040ez 2013 See Publication 575, for more information on designated Roth accounts. 1040ez 2013 Introduction Regardless of your age, you may be able to establish and make nondeductible contributions to an individual retirement plan called a Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 Contributions not reported. 1040ez 2013   You do not report Roth IRA contributions on your return. 1040ez 2013 What Is a Roth IRA? A Roth IRA is an individual retirement plan that, except as explained in this chapter, is subject to the rules that apply to a traditional IRA (defined next). 1040ez 2013 It can be either an account or an annuity. 1040ez 2013 Individual retirement accounts and annuities are described in chapter 1 under How Can a Traditional IRA Be Opened. 1040ez 2013 To be a Roth IRA, the account or annuity must be designated as a Roth IRA when it is opened. 1040ez 2013 A deemed IRA can be a Roth IRA, but neither a SEP IRA nor a SIMPLE IRA can be designated as a Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 Unlike a traditional IRA, you cannot deduct contributions to a Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 But, if you satisfy the requirements, qualified distributions (discussed later) are tax free. 1040ez 2013 Contributions can be made to your Roth IRA after you reach age 70½ and you can leave amounts in your Roth IRA as long as you live. 1040ez 2013 Traditional IRA. 1040ez 2013   A traditional IRA is any IRA that is not a Roth IRA or SIMPLE IRA. 1040ez 2013 Traditional IRAs are discussed in chapter 1. 1040ez 2013 When Can a Roth IRA Be Opened? You can open a Roth IRA at any time. 1040ez 2013 However, the time for making contributions for any year is limited. 1040ez 2013 See When Can You Make Contributions , later under Can You Contribute to a Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 Can You Contribute to a Roth IRA? Generally, you can contribute to a Roth IRA if you have taxable compensation (defined later) and your modified AGI (defined later) is less than: $188,000 for married filing jointly or qualifying widow(er), $127,000 for single, head of household, or married filing separately and you did not live with your spouse at any time during the year, and $10,000 for married filing separately and you lived with your spouse at any time during the year. 1040ez 2013 You may be able to claim a credit for contributions to your Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 For more information, see chapter 4. 1040ez 2013 Is there an age limit for contributions?   Contributions can be made to your Roth IRA regardless of your age. 1040ez 2013 Can you contribute to a Roth IRA for your spouse?   You can contribute to a Roth IRA for your spouse provided the contributions satisfy the Kay Bailey Hutchison Spousal IRA limit discussed in chapter 1 under How Much Can Be Contributed, you file jointly, and your modified AGI is less than $188,000. 1040ez 2013 Compensation. 1040ez 2013   Compensation includes wages, salaries, tips, professional fees, bonuses, and other amounts received for providing personal services. 1040ez 2013 It also includes commissions, self-employment income, nontaxable combat pay, military differential pay, and taxable alimony and separate maintenance payments. 1040ez 2013 For more information, see What Is Compensation? under Who Can Open a Traditional IRA? in chapter 1. 1040ez 2013 Modified AGI. 1040ez 2013   Your modified AGI for Roth IRA purposes is your adjusted gross income (AGI) as shown on your return with some adjustments. 1040ez 2013 Use Worksheet 2-1 , later, to determine your modified AGI. 1040ez 2013    Do not subtract conversion income when figuring your other AGI-based phaseouts and taxable income, such as your deduction for medical and dental expenses. 1040ez 2013 Subtract them from AGI only for the purpose of figuring your modified AGI for Roth IRA purposes. 1040ez 2013 How Much Can Be Contributed? The contribution limit for Roth IRAs generally depends on whether contributions are made only to Roth IRAs or to both traditional IRAs and Roth IRAs. 1040ez 2013 Worksheet 2-1. 1040ez 2013 Modified Adjusted Gross Income for Roth IRA Purposes Use this worksheet to figure your modified adjusted gross income for Roth IRA purposes. 1040ez 2013 1. 1040ez 2013 Enter your adjusted gross income from

or Form 1040NR, line 17b) 2. 1040ez 2013   3. 1040ez 2013 Subtract line 2 from line 1 3. 1040ez 2013   4. 1040ez 2013 Enter any traditional IRA deduction from Form 1040, line 32; Form 1040A, line 17;

Enter any tuition and fees deduction from Form 1040, line 34, or Form 1040A, line 19 6. 1040ez 2013   7. 1040ez 2013 Enter any domestic production activities deduction from Form 1040, line 35, or Form

$188,000 if married filing jointly or qualifying widow(er), $10,000 if married filing separately and you lived with your spouse at any time during the year, or $127,000 for all others 13. 1040ez 2013   Is the amount on line 12 more than the amount on line 13? If yes, see the note below. 1040ez 2013  If no, the amount on line 12 is your modified adjusted gross income for Roth IRA purposes. 1040ez 2013       Note. 1040ez 2013 If the amount on line 12 is more than the amount on line 13 and you have other income or loss items, such as social security income or passive activity losses, that are subject to AGI-based phaseouts, you can refigure your AGI solely for the purpose of figuring your modified AGI for Roth IRA purposes. 1040ez 2013 (If you receive social security benefits, use Worksheet 1 in Appendix B to refigure your AGI. 1040ez 2013 ) Then go to line 3 above in this Worksheet 2-1 to refigure your modified AGI. 1040ez 2013 If you do not have other income or loss items subject to AGI-based phaseouts, your modified adjusted gross income for Roth IRA purposes is the amount on line 12 above. 1040ez 2013 Roth IRAs only. 1040ez 2013   If contributions are made only to Roth IRAs, your contribution limit generally is the lesser of: $5,500 ($6,500 if you are age 50 or older), or Your taxable compensation. 1040ez 2013   However, if your modified AGI is above a certain amount, your contribution limit may be reduced, as explained later under Contribution limit reduced . 1040ez 2013 Roth IRAs and traditional IRAs. 1040ez 2013   If contributions are made to both Roth IRAs and traditional IRAs established for your benefit, your contribution limit for Roth IRAs generally is the same as your limit would be if contributions were made only to Roth IRAs, but then reduced by all contributions for the year to all IRAs other than Roth IRAs. 1040ez 2013 Employer contributions under a SEP or SIMPLE IRA plan do not affect this limit. 1040ez 2013   This means that your contribution limit is the lesser of: $5,500 ($6,500 if you are age 50 or older) minus all contributions (other than employer contributions under a SEP or SIMPLE IRA plan) for the year to all IRAs other than Roth IRAs, or Your taxable compensation minus all contributions (other than employer contributions under a SEP or SIMPLE IRA plan) for the year to all IRAs other than Roth IRAs. 1040ez 2013   However, if your modified AGI is above a certain amount, your contribution limit may be reduced, as explained below under Contribution limit reduced . 1040ez 2013   Simplified employee pensions (SEPs) are discussed in Publication 560. 1040ez 2013 Savings incentive match plans for employees (SIMPLEs) are discussed in chapter 3. 1040ez 2013 Repayment of reservist distributions. 1040ez 2013   You can repay qualified reservist distributions even if the repayments would cause your total contributions to the Roth IRA to be more than the general limit on contributions. 1040ez 2013 However, the total repayments cannot be more than the amount of your distribution. 1040ez 2013 Note. 1040ez 2013 If you make repayments of qualified reservist distributions to a Roth IRA, increase your basis in the Roth IRA by the amount of the repayment. 1040ez 2013 For more information, see Qualified reservist repayments under How Much Can Be Contributed? in chapter 1. 1040ez 2013 Contribution limit reduced. 1040ez 2013   If your modified AGI is above a certain amount, your contribution limit is gradually reduced. 1040ez 2013 Use Table 2-1, later, to determine if this reduction applies to you. 1040ez 2013 Table 2-1. 1040ez 2013 Effect of Modified AGI on Roth IRA Contribution This table shows whether your contribution to a Roth IRA is affected by the amount of your modified adjusted gross income (modified AGI). 1040ez 2013 IF you have taxable compensation and your filing status is . 1040ez 2013 . 1040ez 2013 . 1040ez 2013 AND your modified AGI is . 1040ez 2013 . 1040ez 2013 . 1040ez

A 6% excise tax applies to any excess contribution to a Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 Excess contributions. 1040ez 2013   These are the contributions to your Roth IRAs for a year that equal the total of: Amounts contributed for the tax year to your Roth IRAs (other than amounts properly and timely rolled over from a Roth IRA or properly converted from a traditional IRA or rolled over from a qualified retirement plan, as described later) that are more than your contribution limit for the year (explained earlier under How Much Can Be Contributed? ), plus Any excess contributions for the preceding year, reduced by the total of: Any distributions out of your Roth IRAs for the year, plus Your contribution limit for the year minus your contributions to all your IRAs for the year. 1040ez 2013 Withdrawal of excess contributions. 1040ez 2013   For purposes of determining excess contributions, any contribution that is withdrawn on or before the due date (including extensions) for filing your tax return for the year is treated as an amount not contributed. 1040ez 2013 This treatment only applies if any earnings on the contributions are also withdrawn. 1040ez 2013 The earnings are considered earned and received in the year the excess contribution was made. 1040ez 2013   If you timely filed your 2013 tax return without withdrawing a contribution that you made in 2013, you can still have the contribution returned to you within 6 months of the due date of your 2013 tax return, excluding extensions. 1040ez 2013 If you do, file an amended return with “Filed pursuant to section 301. 1040ez 2013 9100-2” written at the top. 1040ez 2013 Report any related earnings on the amended return and include an explanation of the withdrawal. 1040ez 2013 Make any other necessary changes on the amended return. 1040ez 2013 Applying excess contributions. 1040ez 2013    If contributions to your Roth IRA for a year were more than the limit, you can apply the excess contribution in one year to a later year if the contributions for that later year are less than the maximum allowed for that year. 1040ez 2013 Can You Move Amounts Into a Roth IRA? You may be able to convert amounts from either a traditional, SEP, or SIMPLE IRA into a Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 You may be able to roll over amounts from a qualified retirement plan to a Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 You may be able to recharacterize contributions made to one IRA as having been made directly to a different IRA. 1040ez 2013 You can roll amounts over from a designated Roth account or from one Roth IRA to another Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 Conversions You can convert a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 The conversion is treated as a rollover, regardless of the conversion method used. 1040ez 2013 Most of the rules for rollovers, described in chapter 1 under Rollover From One IRA Into Another , apply to these rollovers. 1040ez 2013 However, the 1-year waiting period does not apply. 1040ez 2013 Conversion methods. 1040ez 2013   You can convert amounts from a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA in any of the following three ways. 1040ez 2013 Rollover. 1040ez 2013 You can receive a distribution from a traditional IRA and roll it over (contribute it) to a Roth IRA within 60 days after the distribution. 1040ez 2013 Trustee-to-trustee transfer. 1040ez 2013 You can direct the trustee of the traditional IRA to transfer an amount from the traditional IRA to the trustee of the Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 Same trustee transfer. 1040ez 2013 If the trustee of the traditional IRA also maintains the Roth IRA, you can direct the trustee to transfer an amount from the traditional IRA to the Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 Same trustee. 1040ez 2013   Conversions made with the same trustee can be made by redesignating the traditional IRA as a Roth IRA, rather than opening a new account or issuing a new contract. 1040ez 2013 Income. 1040ez 2013   You must include in your gross income distributions from a traditional IRA that you would have had to include in income if you had not converted them into a Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 These amounts are normally included in income on your return for the year that you converted them from a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 If you must include any amount in your gross income, you may have to increase your withholding or make estimated tax payments. 1040ez 2013 See Publication 505, Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax. 1040ez 2013 More information. 1040ez 2013   For more information on conversions, see Converting From Any Traditional IRA Into a Roth IRA in chapter 1. 1040ez 2013 Rollover From Employer's Plan Into a Roth IRA You can roll over into a Roth IRA all or part of an eligible rollover distribution you receive from your (or your deceased spouse's): Employer's qualified pension, profit-sharing, or stock bonus plan (including a 401(k) plan); Annuity plan; Tax-sheltered annuity plan (section 403(b) plan); or Governmental deferred compensation plan (section 457 plan). 1040ez 2013 Any amount rolled over is subject to the same rules for converting a traditional IRA into a Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 See Converting From Any Traditional IRA Into a Roth IRA in chapter 1. 1040ez 2013 Also, the rollover contribution must meet the rollover requirements that apply to the specific type of retirement plan. 1040ez 2013 Rollover methods. 1040ez 2013   You can roll over amounts from a qualified retirement plan to a Roth IRA in one of the following ways. 1040ez 2013 Rollover. 1040ez 2013 You can receive a distribution from a qualified retirement plan and roll it over (contribute) to a Roth IRA within 60 days after the distribution. 1040ez 2013 Since the distribution is paid directly to you, the payer generally must withhold 20% of it. 1040ez 2013 Direct rollover option. 1040ez 2013 Your employer's qualified plan must give you the option to have any part of an eligible rollover distribution paid directly to a Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 Generally, no tax is withheld from any part of the designated distribution that is directly paid to the trustee of the Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 Rollover by nonspouse beneficiary. 1040ez 2013   If you are a designated beneficiary (other than a surviving spouse) of a deceased employee, you can roll over all or part of an eligible rollover distribution from one of the types of plans listed above into a Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 You must make the rollover by a direct trustee-to-trustee transfer into an inherited Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013   You will determine your required minimum distributions in years after you make the rollover based on whether the employee died before his or her required beginning date for taking distributions from the plan. 1040ez 2013 For more information, see Distributions after the employee’s death under Tax on Excess Accumulation in Publication 575. 1040ez 2013 Income. 1040ez 2013   You must include in your gross income distributions from a qualified retirement plan that you would have had to include in income if you had not rolled them over into a Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 You do not include in gross income any part of a distribution from a qualified retirement plan that is a return of contributions (after-tax contributions) to the plan that were taxable to you when paid. 1040ez 2013 These amounts are normally included in income on your return for the year of the rollover from the qualified employer plan to a Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 If you must include any amount in your gross income, you may have to increase your withholding or make estimated tax payments. 1040ez 2013 See Publication 505, Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax. 1040ez 2013 For more information on eligible rollover distributions from qualified retirement plans and withholding, see Rollover From Employer's Plan Into an IRA in chapter 1. 1040ez 2013 Military Death Gratuities and Servicemembers' Group Life Insurance (SGLI) Payments If you received a military death gratuity or SGLI payment with respect to a death from injury that occurred after October 6, 2001, you can contribute (roll over) all or part of the amount received to your Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 The contribution is treated as a qualified rollover contribution. 1040ez 2013 The amount you can roll over to your Roth IRA cannot exceed the total amount that you received reduced by any part of that amount that was contributed to a Coverdell ESA or another Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 Any military death gratuity or SGLI payment contributed to a Roth IRA is disregarded for purposes of the 1-year waiting period between rollovers. 1040ez 2013 The rollover must be completed before the end of the 1-year period beginning on the date you received the payment. 1040ez 2013 The amount contributed to your Roth IRA is treated as part of your cost basis (investment in the contract) in the Roth IRA that is not taxable when distributed. 1040ez 2013 Rollover From a Roth IRA You can withdraw, tax free, all or part of the assets from one Roth IRA if you contribute them within 60 days to another Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 Most of the rules for rollovers, described in chapter 1 under Rollover From One IRA Into Another , apply to these rollovers. 1040ez 2013 However, rollovers from retirement plans other than Roth IRAs are disregarded for purposes of the 1-year waiting period between rollovers. 1040ez 2013 A rollover from a Roth IRA to an employer retirement plan is not allowed. 1040ez 2013 A rollover from a designated Roth account can only be made to another designated Roth account or to a Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 If you roll over an amount from one Roth IRA to another Roth IRA, the 5-year period used to determine qualified distributions does not change. 1040ez 2013 The 5-year period begins with the first taxable year for which the contribution was made to the initial Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 See What are Qualified Distributions , later. 1040ez 2013 Rollover of Exxon Valdez Settlement Income If you are a qualified taxpayer (defined in chapter 1, earlier) and you received qualified settlement income (defined in chapter 1, earlier), you can contribute all or part of the amount received to an eligible retirement plan which includes a Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 The rules for contributing qualified settlement income to a Roth IRA are the same as the rules for contributing qualified settlement income to a traditional IRA with the following exception. 1040ez 2013 Qualified settlement income that is contributed to a Roth IRA, or to a designated Roth account, will be: Included in your taxable income for the year the qualified settlement income was received, and Treated as part of your cost basis (investment in the contract) in the Roth IRA that is not taxable when distributed. 1040ez 2013 For more information, see Rollover of Exxon Valdez Settlement Income in chapter 1. 1040ez 2013 Rollover of Airline Payments If you are a qualified airline employee (defined next), you may contribute any portion of an airline payment (defined below) you receive to a Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 The contribution must be made within 180 days from the date you received the payment. 1040ez 2013 The contribution will be treated as a qualified rollover contribution. 1040ez 2013 The rollover contribution is included in income to the extent it would be included in income if it were not part of the rollover contribution. 1040ez 2013 Also, any reduction in the airline payment amount on account of employment taxes shall be disregarded when figuring the amount you can contribute to your Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 Qualified airline employee. 1040ez 2013    A current or former employee of a commercial airline carrier who was a participant in a qualified defined benefit plan maintained by the carrier which was terminated or became subject to restrictions under Section 402(b) of the Pension Protection Act of 2006. 1040ez 2013 These provisions also apply to surviving spouses of qualified airline employees. 1040ez 2013 Airline payment. 1040ez 2013    An airline payment is any payment of money or other property that is paid to a qualified airline employee from a commercial airline carrier. 1040ez 2013 The payment also must be made both: Under the approval of an order of federal bankruptcy court in a case filed after September 11, 2001, and before January 1, 2007, and In respect of the qualified airline employee’s interest in a bankruptcy claim against the airline carrier, any note of the carrier (or amount paid in lieu of a note being issued), or any other fixed obligation of the carrier to pay a lump sum amount. 1040ez 2013 Any reduction in the airline payment amount on account of employment taxes shall be disregarded when figuring the amount you can roll over to your traditional IRA. 1040ez 2013 Also, an airline payment shall not include any amount payable on the basis of the airline carrier’s future earnings or profits. 1040ez 2013 Are Distributions Taxable? You do not include in your gross income qualified distributions or distributions that are a return of your regular contributions from your Roth IRA(s). 1040ez 2013 You also do not include distributions from your Roth IRA that you roll over tax free into another Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 You may have to include part of other distributions in your income. 1040ez 2013 See Ordering Rules for Distributions , later. 1040ez 2013 Basis of distributed property. 1040ez 2013   The basis of property distributed from a Roth IRA is its fair market value (FMV) on the date of distribution, whether or not the distribution is a qualified distribution. 1040ez 2013 Withdrawals of contributions by due date. 1040ez 2013   If you withdraw contributions (including any net earnings on the contributions) by the due date of your return for the year in which you made the contribution, the contributions are treated as if you never made them. 1040ez 2013 If you have an extension of time to file your return, you can withdraw the contributions and earnings by the extended due date. 1040ez 2013 The withdrawal of contributions is tax free, but you must include the earnings on the contributions in income for the year in which you made the contributions. 1040ez 2013 What Are Qualified Distributions? A qualified distribution is any payment or distribution from your Roth IRA that meets the following requirements. 1040ez 2013 It is made after the 5-year period beginning with the first taxable year for which a contribution was made to a Roth IRA set up for your benefit, and The payment or distribution is: Made on or after the date you reach age 59½, Made because you are disabled (defined earlier), Made to a beneficiary or to your estate after your death, or One that meets the requirements listed under First home under Exceptions in chapter 1 (up to a $10,000 lifetime limit). 1040ez 2013 Additional Tax on Early Distributions If you receive a distribution that is not a qualified distribution, you may have to pay the 10% additional tax on early distributions as explained in the following paragraphs. 1040ez 2013 Distributions of conversion and certain rollover contributions within 5-year period. 1040ez 2013   If, within the 5-year period starting with the first day of your tax year in which you convert an amount from a traditional IRA or rollover an amount from a qualified retirement plan to a Roth IRA, you take a distribution from a Roth IRA, you may have to pay the 10% additional tax on early distributions. 1040ez 2013 You generally must pay the 10% additional tax on any amount attributable to the part of the amount converted or rolled over (the conversion or rollover contribution) that you had to include in income (recapture amount). 1040ez 2013 A separate 5-year period applies to each conversion and rollover. 1040ez 2013 See Ordering Rules for Distributions , later, to determine the recapture amount, if any. 1040ez 2013   The 5-year period used for determining whether the 10% early distribution tax applies to a distribution from a conversion or rollover contribution is separately determined for each conversion and rollover, and is not necessarily the same as the 5-year period used for determining whether a distribution is a qualified distribution. 1040ez 2013 See What Are Qualified Distributions , earlier. 1040ez 2013   For example, if a calendar-year taxpayer makes a conversion contribution on February 25, 2013, and makes a regular contribution for 2012 on the same date, the 5-year period for the conversion begins January 1, 2013, while the 5-year period for the regular contribution begins on January 1, 2012. 1040ez 2013   Unless one of the exceptions listed later applies, you must pay the additional tax on the portion of the distribution attributable to the part of the conversion or rollover contribution that you had to include in income because of the conversion or rollover. 1040ez 2013   You must pay the 10% additional tax in the year of the distribution, even if you had included the conversion or rollover contribution in an earlier year. 1040ez 2013 You also must pay the additional tax on any portion of the distribution attributable to earnings on contributions. 1040ez 2013 Other early distributions. 1040ez 2013   Unless one of the exceptions listed below applies, you must pay the 10% additional tax on the taxable part of any distributions that are not qualified distributions. 1040ez 2013 Exceptions. 1040ez 2013   You may not have to pay the 10% additional tax in the following situations. 1040ez 2013 You have reached age 59½. 1040ez 2013 You are totally and permanently disabled. 1040ez 2013 You are the beneficiary of a deceased IRA owner. 1040ez 2013 You use the distribution to buy, build, or rebuild a first home. 1040ez 2013 The distributions are part of a series of substantially equal payments. 1040ez 2013 You have unreimbursed medical expenses that are more than 10% (or 7. 1040ez 2013 5% if you or your spouse was born before January 2, 1949) of your adjusted gross income (defined earlier) for the year. 1040ez 2013 You are paying medical insurance premiums during a period of unemployment. 1040ez 2013 The distributions are not more than your qualified higher education expenses. 1040ez 2013 The distribution is due to an IRS levy of the qualified plan. 1040ez 2013 The distribution is a qualified reservist distribution. 1040ez 2013 Most of these exceptions are discussed earlier in chapter 1 under Early Distributions . 1040ez 2013 Please click here for the text description of the image. 1040ez 2013 Is Roth Distributions a Qualified Distribution? Ordering Rules for Distributions If you receive a distribution from your Roth IRA that is not a qualified distribution, part of it may be taxable. 1040ez 2013 There is a set order in which contributions (including conversion contributions and rollover contributions from qualified retirement plans) and earnings are considered to be distributed from your Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 For these purposes, disregard the withdrawal of excess contributions and the earnings on them (discussed earlier under What if You Contribute Too Much ). 1040ez 2013 Order the distributions as follows. 1040ez 2013 Regular contributions. 1040ez 2013 Conversion and rollover contributions, on a first-in, first-out basis (generally, total conversions and rollovers from the earliest year first). 1040ez 2013 See Aggregation (grouping and adding) rules, later. 1040ez 2013 Take these conversion and rollover contributions into account as follows: Taxable portion (the amount required to be included in gross income because of the conversion or rollover) first, and then the Nontaxable portion. 1040ez 2013 Earnings on contributions. 1040ez 2013 Disregard rollover contributions from other Roth IRAs for this purpose. 1040ez 2013 Aggregation (grouping and adding) rules. 1040ez 2013   Determine the taxable amounts distributed (withdrawn), distributions, and contributions by grouping and adding them together as follows. 1040ez 2013 Add all distributions from all your Roth IRAs during the year together. 1040ez 2013 Add all regular contributions made for the year (including contributions made after the close of the year, but before the due date of your return) together. 1040ez 2013 Add this total to the total undistributed regular contributions made in prior years. 1040ez 2013 Add all conversion and rollover contributions made during the year together. 1040ez 2013 For purposes of the ordering rules, in the case of any conversion or rollover in which the conversion or rollover distribution is made in 2013 and the conversion or rollover contribution is made in 2014, treat the conversion or rollover contribution as contributed before any other conversion or rollover contributions made in 2014. 1040ez 2013 Add any recharacterized contributions that end up in a Roth IRA to the appropriate contribution group for the year that the original contribution would have been taken into account if it had been made directly to the Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013   Disregard any recharacterized contribution that ends up in an IRA other than a Roth IRA for the purpose of grouping (aggregating) both contributions and distributions. 1040ez 2013 Also disregard any amount withdrawn to correct an excess contribution (including the earnings withdrawn) for this purpose. 1040ez 2013 Example. 1040ez 2013 On October 15, 2009, Justin converted all $80,000 in his traditional IRA to his Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 His Forms 8606 from prior years show that $20,000 of the amount converted is his basis. 1040ez 2013 Justin included $60,000 ($80,000 − $20,000) in his gross income. 1040ez 2013 On February 23, 2013, Justin made a regular contribution of $5,000 to a Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 On November 8, 2013, at age 60, Justin took a $7,000 distribution from his Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 The first $5,000 of the distribution is a return of Justin's regular contribution and is not includible in his income. 1040ez 2013 The next $2,000 of the distribution is not includible in income because it was included previously. 1040ez 2013 Figuring your recapture amount. 1040ez 2013   If you had an early distribution from your Roth IRAs in 2013, you must allocate the early distribution by using the Recapture Amount—Allocation Chart, later. 1040ez 2013 Recapture Amount—Allocation Chart Enter the amount from your 2013 Form 8606, line 19   Before you begin: You will need your prior year Form(s) 8606 and income tax return(s) if you entered an amount on any line(s) as indicated below. 1040ez 2013   You will now allocate the amount you entered above (2013 Form 8606, line 19) 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). 1040ez 2013 The maximum amount you can enter on each line below is the amount entered on the referenced lines of the form for that year. 1040ez 2013 Note. 1040ez 2013 Once you have allocated the full amount from your 2013 Form 8606, line 19, STOP. 1040ez 2013 See the Example , earlier. 1040ez 2013 Tax Year Your Form 2013 Form 8606, line 20   Form 8606, line 22   1998 Form 8606, line 16   Form

to it every year. 1040ez 2013 In addition, he made the following transactions into his Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 In 2005, he converted $10,000 from his traditional IRA into his Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 He filled out a 2005 Form 8606 and attached it with his 2005 Form 1040. 1040ez 2013 He entered $0 on line 17 of Form 8606 because he took a deduction for all the contributions to the traditional IRA, therefore he has no basis. 1040ez 2013 He entered $10,000 on line 18 of Form 8606. 1040ez 2013 In 2011, he rolled over the entire balance of his qualified retirement plan, $20,000, into a Roth IRA when he changed jobs. 1040ez 2013 He used a 2011 Form 1040 to file his taxes. 1040ez 2013 He entered $20,000 on line 16a of Form 1040 because that was the amount reported in box 1 of his 2011 Form 1099-R. 1040ez 2013 Box 5 of his 2011 Form 1099-R reported $0 since he did not make any after-tax contributions to the qualified retirement plan. 1040ez 2013 He entered $20,000 on line 16b of Form 1040 since that is the taxable amount that was rolled over in 2011. 1040ez 2013 The total balance in his Roth IRA as of January 1, 2013 was $105,000 ($50,000 in contributions from 2000 through 2012 + $10,000 from the 2005 conversion + $20,000 from the 2011 rollover + $25,000 from earnings). 1040ez 2013 He has not taken any early distribution from his Roth IRA before 2013. 1040ez 2013 In 2013, he made the maximum contribution of $5,500 to his Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 In August of 2013, he took a $85,500 early distribution from his Roth IRA to use as a down payment on the purchase of his first home. 1040ez 2013 See his filled out Illustrated Recapture Amount—Allocation Chart, later, to see how he allocated the amounts from the above transactions. 1040ez 2013 Based on his allocation, he would enter $20,000 on his 2013 Form 5329, line 1 (see Amount to include on Form 5329, line 1 , above). 1040ez 2013 He should also report $10,000 on his 2013 Form 5329, line 2, and enter exception 09 since that amount is not subject to the 10% additional tax on early distributions. 1040ez 2013 Illustrated Recapture Amount—Allocation Chart Enter the amount from your 2013 Form 8606, line 19 $85,500 Before you begin: You will need your prior year Form(s) 8606 and income tax return(s) if you entered an amount on any line(s) as indicated below. 1040ez 2013   You will now allocate the amount you entered above (2013 Form 8606, line 19) 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). 1040ez 2013 The maximum amount you can enter on each line below is the amount entered on the referenced lines of the form for that year. 1040ez 2013 Note. 1040ez 2013 Once you have allocated the full amount from your 2013 Form 8606, line 19, STOP. 1040ez 2013 See the Example , earlier. 1040ez 2013 Tax Year Your Form 2013 Form 8606, line 20 $10,000 Form 8606, line 22 $55,500 1998 Form 8606, line 16   Form 8606, line 15

 **Only include any contributions (usually Form 1099-R, box 5) that were taxable to you when made and rolled over to a Roth IRA. 1040ez 2013 How Do You Figure the Taxable Part? To figure the taxable part of a distribution that is not a qualified distribution, complete Form 8606, Part III. 1040ez 2013 Must You Withdraw or Use Assets? You are not required to take distributions from your Roth IRA at any age. 1040ez 2013 The minimum distribution rules that apply to traditional IRAs do not apply to Roth IRAs while the owner is alive. 1040ez 2013 However, after the death of a Roth IRA owner, certain of the minimum distribution rules that apply to traditional IRAs also apply to Roth IRAs as explained later under Distributions After Owner's Death . 1040ez 2013 Minimum distributions. 1040ez 2013   You cannot use your Roth IRA to satisfy minimum distribution requirements for your traditional IRA. 1040ez 2013 Nor can you use distributions from traditional IRAs for required distributions from Roth IRAs. 1040ez 2013 See Distributions to beneficiaries , later. 1040ez 2013 Recognizing Losses on Investments If you have a loss on your Roth IRA investment, you can recognize the loss on your income tax return, but only when all the amounts in all of your Roth IRA accounts have been distributed to you and the total distributions are less than your unrecovered basis. 1040ez 2013 Your basis is the total amount of contributions in your Roth IRAs. 1040ez 2013 You claim the loss as a miscellaneous itemized deduction, subject to the 2%-of-adjusted-gross-income limit that applies to certain miscellaneous itemized deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040). 1040ez 2013 Any such losses are added back to taxable income for purposes of calculating the alternative minimum tax. 1040ez 2013 Distributions After Owner's Death If a Roth IRA owner dies, the minimum distribution rules that apply to traditional IRAs apply to Roth IRAs as though the Roth IRA owner died before his or her required beginning date. 1040ez 2013 See When Can You Withdraw or Use Assets? in chapter 1. 1040ez 2013 Distributions to beneficiaries. 1040ez 2013   Generally, the entire interest in the Roth IRA must be distributed by the end of the fifth calendar year after the year of the owner's death unless the interest is payable to a designated beneficiary over the life or life expectancy of the designated beneficiary. 1040ez 2013 (See When Must You Withdraw Assets? (Required Minimum Distributions) in chapter 1. 1040ez 2013 )   If paid as an annuity, the entire interest must be payable over a period not greater than the designated beneficiary's life expectancy and distributions must begin before the end of the calendar year following the year of death. 1040ez 2013 Distributions from another Roth IRA cannot be substituted for these distributions unless the other Roth IRA was inherited from the same decedent. 1040ez 2013   If the sole beneficiary is the spouse, he or she can either delay distributions until the decedent would have reached age 70½ or treat the Roth IRA as his or her own. 1040ez 2013 Combining with other Roth IRAs. 1040ez 2013   A beneficiary can combine an inherited Roth IRA with another Roth IRA maintained by the beneficiary only if the beneficiary either: Inherited the other Roth IRA from the same decedent, or Was the spouse of the decedent and the sole beneficiary of the Roth IRA and elects to treat it as his or her own IRA. 1040ez 2013 Distributions that are not qualified distributions. 1040ez 2013   If a distribution to a beneficiary is not a qualified distribution, it is generally includible in the beneficiary's gross income in the same manner as it would have been included in the owner's income had it been distributed to the IRA owner when he or she was alive. 1040ez 2013   If the owner of a Roth IRA dies before the end of: The 5-year period beginning with the first taxable year for which a contribution was made to a Roth IRA set up for the owner's benefit, or The 5-year period starting with the year of a conversion contribution from a traditional IRA or a rollover from a qualified retirement plan to a Roth IRA, each type of contribution is divided among multiple beneficiaries according to the pro-rata share of each. 1040ez 2013 See Ordering Rules for Distributions , earlier in this chapter under Are Distributions Taxable. 1040ez 2013 Example. 1040ez 2013 When Ms. 1040ez 2013 Hibbard died in 2013, her Roth IRA contained regular contributions of $4,000, a conversion contribution of $10,000 that was made in 2009, and earnings of $2,000. 1040ez 2013 No distributions had been made from her IRA. 1040ez 2013 She had no basis in the conversion contribution in 2009. 1040ez 2013 When she established this Roth IRA (her first) in 2009, she named each of her four children as equal beneficiaries. 1040ez 2013 Each child will receive one-fourth of each type of contribution and one-fourth of the earnings. 1040ez 2013 An immediate distribution of $4,000 to each child will be treated as $1,000 from regular contributions, $2,500 from conversion contributions, and $500 from earnings. 1040ez 2013 In this case, because the distributions are made before the end of the applicable 5-year period for a qualified distribution, each beneficiary includes $500 in income for 2013. 1040ez 2013 The 10% additional tax on early distributions does not apply because the distribution was made to the beneficiaries as a result of the death of the IRA owner. 1040ez 2013 If distributions from an inherited Roth IRA are less than the required minimum distribution for the year, discussed in chapter 1 under When Must You Withdraw Assets? (Required Minimum Distributions), you may have to pay a 50% excise tax for that year on the amount not distributed as required. 1040ez 2013 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. 1040ez 2013 If this applies to you, substitute “Roth IRA” for “traditional IRA” in that discussion. 1040ez 2013 Prev  Up  Next   Home   More Online Publications
