amended return He filled out a 2005 Form 8606 and attached it with his 2005 Form 1040. 2012 amended return He entered $0 on line 17 of Form 8606 because he took a deduction for all the contributions

that was the amount reported in box 1 of his 2011 Form 1099-R. 2012 amended return Box 5 of his 2011 Form 1099-R reported $0 since he did not make any after-tax contributions to the qualified

 **Only include any contributions (usually Form 1099-R, box 5) that were taxable to you when made and rolled over to a Roth IRA. 2012 amended return 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. 2012 amended return Must You Withdraw or Use Assets? You are not required to take distributions from your Roth IRA at any age. 2012 amended return The minimum distribution rules that apply to traditional IRAs do not apply to Roth IRAs while the owner is alive. 2012 amended return 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 . 2012 amended return Minimum distributions. 2012 amended return   You cannot use your Roth IRA to satisfy minimum distribution requirements for your traditional IRA. 2012 amended return Nor can you use distributions from traditional IRAs for required distributions from Roth IRAs. 2012 amended return See Distributions to beneficiaries , later. 2012 amended return 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. 2012 amended return Your basis is the total amount of contributions in your Roth IRAs. 2012 amended return 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). 2012 amended return Any such losses are added back to taxable income for purposes of calculating the alternative minimum tax. 2012 amended return 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. 2012 amended return See When Can You Withdraw or Use Assets? in chapter 1. 2012 amended return Distributions to beneficiaries. 2012 amended return   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. 2012 amended return (See When Must You Withdraw Assets? (Required Minimum Distributions) in chapter 1. 2012 amended return )   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. 2012 amended return Distributions from another Roth IRA cannot be substituted for these distributions unless the other Roth IRA was inherited from the same decedent. 2012 amended return   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. 2012 amended return Combining with other Roth IRAs. 2012 amended return   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. 2012 amended return Distributions that are not qualified distributions. 2012 amended return   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. 2012 amended return   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. 2012 amended return See Ordering Rules for Distributions , earlier in this chapter under Are Distributions Taxable. 2012 amended return Example. 2012 amended return When Ms. 2012 amended return 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. 2012 amended return No distributions had been made from her IRA. 2012 amended return She had no basis in the conversion contribution in 2009. 2012 amended return When she established this Roth IRA (her first) in 2009, she named each of her four children as equal beneficiaries. 2012 amended return Each child will receive one-fourth of each type of contribution and one-fourth of the earnings. 2012 amended return 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. 2012 amended return 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. 2012 amended return 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. 2012 amended return 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. 2012 amended return 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. 2012 amended return If this applies to you, substitute “Roth IRA” for “traditional IRA” in that discussion. 2012 amended return Prev  Up  Next   Home   More Online Publications
