Tax return 2012 form In most cases, the payments you receive or that are made available to you under your 403(b) account are taxable in full as ordinary income. Tax return 2012 form In general, the same tax rules apply to distributions from 403(b) plans that apply to distributions from other retirement plans. Tax return 2012 form These rules are explained in Publication 575. Tax return 2012 form Publication 575 also discusses the additional tax on early distributions from retirement plans. Tax return 2012 form Retired public safety officers. Tax return 2012 form   If you are an eligible retired public safety officer, distributions of up to $3,000, made directly from your 403(b) plan to pay accident, health, or long-term care insurance, are not included in your taxable income. Tax return 2012 form The premiums can be for you, your spouse, or your dependents. Tax return 2012 form   A public safety officer is a law enforcement officer, fire fighter, chaplain, or member of a rescue squad or ambulance crew. Tax return 2012 form   For additional information, see Publication 575. Tax return 2012 form Distribution for active reservist. Tax return 2012 form   The 10% penalty for early withdrawals will not apply to a qualified reservist distribution attributable to elective deferrals from a 403(b) plan.

Tax return 2012 form Minimum Required Distributions You must receive all, or at least a certain minimum, of your interest accruing after 1986 in the 403(b) plan by April 1 of the calendar year following the later of the calendar year in which you become age 70½, or the calendar year in which you retire. Tax return 2012 form Check with your employer, plan administrator, or provider to find out whether this rule also applies to pre-1987 accruals. Tax return 2012 form If not, a minimum amount of these accruals must begin to be distributed by the later of the end of the calendar year in which you reach age 75 or April 1 of the calendar year following retirement. Tax return 2012 form For each year thereafter, the minimum distribution must be made by the last day of the year. Tax return 2012 form If you do not receive the required minimum distribution, you are subject to a nondeductible 50% excise tax on the difference between the required minimum distribution and the amount actually distributed. Tax return 2012 form No Special 10-Year Tax Option A distribution from a 403(b) plan does not qualify as a lump-sum distribution. Tax return 2012 form This means you cannot use the special 10-year tax option to calculate the taxable portion of a 403(b) distribution. Tax return 2012 form For more information, see Publication 575. Tax return 2012 form Transfer of Interest in 403(b) Contract Contract exchanges. Tax return 2012 form   If you transfer all or part of your interest from a 403(b) contract to another 403(b) contract (held in the same plan), the transfer is tax free, and is referred to as a contract exchange. Tax return 2012 form This was previously known as a 90-24 transfer. Tax return 2012 form A contract exchange is similar to a 90-24 transfer with one major difference. Tax return 2012 form Previously, you were able to accomplish the transfer without your employer’s involvement. Tax return 2012 form After September 24, 2007, all such transfers are accomplished through a contract exchange requiring your employer’s involvement. Tax return 2012 form In addition, the plan must provide for the exchange and the transferred interest must be subject to the same or stricter distribution restrictions. Tax return 2012 form Finally, your accumulated benefit after the exchange must be equal to what it was before the exchange. Tax return 2012 form   Transfers that do not satisfy this rule are plan distributions and are generally taxable as ordinary income. Tax return 2012 form Plan-to-plan transfers. Tax return 2012 form   You may also transfer part or all of your interest from a 403(b) plan to another 403(b) plan if you are an employee of (or were formerly employed by) the employer of the plan to which you would like to transfer. Tax return 2012 form Both the initial plan and the receiving plan must provide for transfers. Tax return 2012 form Your accumulated benefit after the transfer must be at least equal to what it was before the transfer. Tax return 2012 form The new plan’s restrictions on distributions must be the same or stricter than those of the original plan. Tax return 2012 form Tax-free transfers for certain cash distributions. Tax return 2012 form   A tax-free transfer may also apply to a cash distribution of your 403(b) account from an insurance company that is subject to a rehabilitation, conservatorship, insolvency, or similar state proceeding. Tax return 2012 form To receive tax-free treatment, you must do all of the following: Withdraw all the cash to which you are entitled in full settlement of your contract rights or, if less, the maximum permitted by the state. Tax return 2012 form Reinvest the cash distribution in a single policy or contract issued by another insurance company or in a single custodial account subject to the same or stricter distribution restrictions as the original contract not later than 60 days after you receive the cash distribution. Tax return 2012 form Assign all future distribution rights to the new contract or account for investment in that contract or account if you received an amount that is less than what you are entitled to because of state restrictions. Tax return 2012 form   In addition to the preceding requirements, you must provide the new insurer with a written statement containing all of the following information: The gross amount of cash distributed under the old contract. Tax return 2012 form The amount of cash reinvested in the new contract. Tax return 2012 form Your investment in the old contract on the date you receive your first cash distribution. Tax return 2012 form   Also, you must attach the following items to your timely filed income tax return in the year you receive the first distribution of cash. Tax return 2012 form A copy of the statement you gave the new insurer. Tax return 2012 form A statement that includes: The words ELECTION UNDER REV. Tax return 2012 form PROC. Tax return 2012 form 92-44, The name of the company that issued the new contract, and The new policy number. Tax return 2012 form Direct trustee-to-trustee transfer. Tax return 2012 form   If you make a direct trustee-to-trustee transfer, from your governmental 403(b) account to a defined benefit governmental plan, it may not be includible in gross income. Tax return 2012 form   The transfer amount is not includible in gross income if it is made to: Purchase permissive service credits, or Repay contributions and earnings that were previously refunded under a forfeiture of service credit under the plan, or under another plan maintained by a state or local government employer within the same state. Tax return 2012 form After-tax contributions. Tax return 2012 form   For distributions beginning after December 31, 2006, after-tax contributions can be rolled over between a 403(b) plan and a defined benefit plan, IRA, or a defined contribution plan. Tax return 2012 form If the rollover is to or from a 403(b) plan, it must occur through a direct trustee-to-trustee transfer. Tax return 2012 form Permissive service credit. Tax return 2012 form   A permissive service credit is credit for a period of service recognized by a defined benefit governmental plan only if you voluntarily contribute to the plan an amount that does not exceed the amount necessary to fund the benefit attributable to the period of service and the amount contributed is in addition to the regular employee contribution, if any, under the plan. Tax return 2012 form   A permissive service credit may also include service credit for up to 5 years where there is no performance of service, or service credited to provide an increased benefit for service credit which a participant is receiving under the plan. Tax return 2012 form   Check with your plan administrator as to the type and extent of service that may be purchased by this transfer. Tax return 2012 form Tax-Free Rollovers You can generally roll over tax free all or any part of a distribution from a 403(b) plan to a traditional IRA or a non-Roth eligible retirement plan, except for any nonqualifying distributions, described later. Tax return 2012 form You may also roll over any part of a distribution from a 403(b) plan by converting it through a direct rollover, described below, to a Roth IRA. Tax return 2012 form Conversion amounts are generally includible in your taxable income in the year of the distribution from your 403(b) account. Tax return 2012 form See Publication 590 for more information about conversion into a Roth IRA. Tax return 2012 form Note. Tax return 2012 form A participant is required to roll over distribution amounts received within 60 days in order for the amount to be treated as nontaxable. Tax return 2012 form Distribution amounts that are rolled over within the 60 days are not subject to the 10% early distribution penalty. Tax return 2012 form Rollovers to and from 403(b) plans. Tax return 2012 form   You can generally roll over tax free all or any part of a distribution from an eligible retirement plan to a 403(b) plan. Tax return 2012 form Beginning January 1, 2008, distributions from tax-qualified retirement plans and tax-sheltered annuities can be converted by making a direct rollover into a Roth IRA subject to the restrictions that currently apply to rollovers from a traditional IRA into a Roth IRA. Tax return 2012 form Converted amounts are generally includible in your taxable income in the year of the distribution from your 403(b) account. Tax return 2012 form See Publication 590 for more information on conversion into a Roth IRA. Tax return 2012 form   If a distribution includes both pre-tax contributions and after-tax contributions, the portion of the distribution that is rolled over is treated as consisting first of pre-tax amounts (contributions and earnings that would be includible in income if no rollover occurred). Tax return 2012 form This means that if you roll over an amount that is at least as much as the pre-tax portion of the distribution, you do not have to include any of the distribution in income. Tax return 2012 form   For more information on rollovers and eligible retirement plans, see Publication 575. Tax return 2012 form If you roll over money or other property from a 403(b) plan to an eligible retirement plan, see Publication 575 for information about possible effects on later distributions from the eligible retirement plan. Tax return 2012 form Hardship exception to rollover rules. Tax return 2012 form   The IRS may waive the 60-day rollover period if the failure to waive such requirement would be against equity or good conscience, including cases of casualty, disaster, or other events beyond the reasonable control of an individual. Tax return 2012 form   To obtain a hardship exception, you must apply to the IRS for a waiver of the 60-day rollover requirement. Tax return 2012 form You apply for the waiver by following the general instructions used in requesting a letter ruling. Tax return 2012 form These instructions are stated in Revenue Procedure 2013-4, 2013-1 I. Tax return 2012 form R. Tax return 2012 form B. Tax return 2012 form 126 available at www. Tax return 2012 form irs. Tax return 2012 form gov/irb/2013-01_IRB/ar09. Tax return 2012 form html, or see the latest annual update.
