Tax slayer Introduction This publication gives you the information you need to determine the tax treatment of your pension and annuity income under the General Rule. Tax slayer Generally, each of your monthly annuity payments is made up of two parts: the tax-free part that is a return of your net cost, and the taxable balance. Tax slayer What is the General Rule. Tax slayer   The General Rule is one of the two methods used to figure the tax-free part of each annuity payment based on the ratio of your investment in the contract to the total expected return. Tax slayer The other method is the Simplified Method, which is discussed in Publication 575, Pension and Annuity Income. Tax slayer Who must use the General Rule. Tax slayer   Use this publication if you receive pension or annuity payments from: A nonqualified plan (for example, a private annuity, a purchased commercial annuity, or a nonqualified employee plan), A qualified plan if: Your annuity starting date is before November 19, 1996 (and after July 1, 1986), and you do not qualify to use, or did not choose to use, the Simplified Method, or Your annuity starting date is after November 18, 1996, and as of that date you are age 75 or over and the annuity payments are guaranteed for at least 5 years. Tax slayer If your annuity starting date was between July 1, 1986 and November 19, 1996, you were able to elect to use the Simplified Method or the General Rule.

Tax slayer This method is described in Publication 575, Pension and Annuity Income. Tax slayer   Also, if, at the time the annuity payments began, you were at least age 75 and were entitled to annuity payments from a qualified plan with fewer than 5 years of guaranteed payments, you must use the Simplified Method. Tax slayer Beginning in 2013, distributions from an annuity under a nonqualified plan are considered net investment income for the purpose of figuring the net investment income tax (NIIT). Tax slayer For more information, see the instructions for Form 8960, Net Investment Income Tax – Individuals, Estates and Trusts. Tax slayer Topics not covered in this publication.
