Refile taxes However, these distributions are taken into account when determining the modified adjusted gross income threshold. Refile taxes Distributions from a nonqualified retirement plan are included in net investment income. Refile taxes See Form 8960, Net Investment Income Tax—Individuals, Estates, and Trusts, and its instructions for more information.

Refile taxes You cannot make a Roth IRA contribution if your modified AGI is $10,000 or more. Refile taxes Reminders Deemed IRAs. Refile taxes  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. Refile taxes If the separate account or annuity otherwise meets the requirements of an IRA, it will be subject only to IRA rules. Refile taxes An employee's account can be treated as a traditional IRA or a Roth IRA. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes Designated Roth accounts. Refile taxes  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. Refile taxes These elective deferrals are included in your income, but qualified distributions from these accounts are not included in your income. Refile taxes Designated Roth accounts are not IRAs and should not be confused with Roth IRAs. Refile taxes Contributions, up to their respective limits, can be made to Roth IRAs and designated Roth accounts according to your eligibility to participate. Refile taxes A contribution to one does not impact your eligibility to contribute to the other. Refile taxes See Publication 575, for more information on designated Roth accounts. Refile taxes Introduction Regardless of your age, you may be able to establish and make nondeductible contributions to an individual retirement plan called a Roth IRA. Refile taxes Contributions not reported. Refile taxes   You do not report Roth IRA contributions on your return. Refile taxes 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). Refile taxes It can be either an account or an annuity. Refile taxes Individual retirement accounts and annuities are described in chapter 1 under How Can a Traditional IRA Be Opened. Refile taxes To be a Roth IRA, the account or annuity must be designated as a Roth IRA when it is opened. Refile taxes A deemed IRA can be a Roth IRA, but neither a SEP IRA nor a SIMPLE IRA can be designated as a Roth IRA. Refile taxes Unlike a traditional IRA, you cannot deduct contributions to a Roth IRA. Refile taxes But, if you satisfy the requirements, qualified distributions (discussed later) are tax free. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes Traditional IRA. Refile taxes   A traditional IRA is any IRA that is not a Roth IRA or SIMPLE IRA. Refile taxes Traditional IRAs are discussed in chapter 1. Refile taxes When Can a Roth IRA Be Opened? You can open a Roth IRA at any time. Refile taxes However, the time for making contributions for any year is limited. Refile taxes See When Can You Make Contributions , later under Can You Contribute to a Roth IRA. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes You may be able to claim a credit for contributions to your Roth IRA. Refile taxes For more information, see chapter 4. Refile taxes Is there an age limit for contributions?   Contributions can be made to your Roth IRA regardless of your age. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes Compensation. Refile taxes   Compensation includes wages, salaries, tips, professional fees, bonuses, and other amounts received for providing personal services. Refile taxes It also includes commissions, self-employment income, nontaxable combat pay, military differential pay, and taxable alimony and separate maintenance payments. Refile taxes For more information, see What Is Compensation? under Who Can Open a Traditional IRA? in chapter 1. Refile taxes Modified AGI. Refile taxes   Your modified AGI for Roth IRA purposes is your adjusted gross income (AGI) as shown on your return with some adjustments. Refile taxes Use Worksheet 2-1 , later, to determine your modified AGI. Refile taxes    Do not subtract conversion income when figuring your other AGI-based phaseouts and taxable income, such as your deduction for medical and dental expenses. Refile taxes Subtract them from AGI only for the purpose of figuring your modified AGI for Roth IRA purposes. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes Worksheet 2-1. Refile taxes Modified Adjusted Gross Income for Roth IRA Purposes Use this worksheet to figure your modified adjusted gross income for Roth IRA purposes. Refile taxes 1. Refile taxes Enter your adjusted gross income from Form 1040, line 38; Form 1040A, line 22; or Form 1040NR, line 37 1. Refile taxes   2. Refile taxes Enter any income resulting from the conversion of an IRA (other than a Roth IRA) to a Roth IRA (included on Form 1040, line 15b, Form 1040A, line 11b, or Form 1040NR, line 16b) and a rollover from a qualified retirement plan to a Roth IRA (included on Form 1040, line 16b, Form 1040A, line 12b, or Form 1040NR, line 17b) 2. Refile taxes   3. Refile taxes Subtract line 2 from line 1 3. Refile taxes   4. Refile taxes Enter any traditional IRA deduction from Form 1040, line 32; Form 1040A, line 17; or Form 1040NR, line 32 4. Refile taxes   5. Refile taxes Enter any student loan interest deduction from Form 1040, line 33; Form 1040A, line 18; or Form 1040NR, line 33 5. Refile taxes   6. Refile taxes Enter any tuition and fees deduction from Form 1040, line 34, or Form 1040A, line 19 6. Refile taxes   7. Refile taxes Enter any domestic production activities deduction from Form 1040, line 35, or Form 1040NR, line 34 7. Refile taxes   8. Refile taxes Enter any foreign earned income exclusion and/or housing exclusion from Form 2555, line 45, or Form 2555-EZ, line 18 8. Refile taxes   9. Refile taxes Enter any foreign housing deduction from Form 2555, line 50 9. Refile taxes   10. Refile taxes Enter any excludable qualified savings bond interest from Form 8815, line 14 10. Refile taxes   11. Refile taxes Enter any excluded employer-provided adoption benefits from Form 8839, line 28 11. Refile taxes   12. Refile taxes Add the amounts on lines 3 through 11 12. Refile taxes   13. Refile taxes Enter: $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. Refile taxes   Is the amount on line 12 more than the amount on line 13? If yes, see the note below. Refile taxes  If no, the amount on line 12 is your modified adjusted gross income for Roth IRA purposes. Refile taxes       Note. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes (If you receive social security benefits, use Worksheet 1 in Appendix B to refigure your AGI. Refile taxes ) Then go to line 3 above in this Worksheet 2-1 to refigure your modified AGI. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes Roth IRAs only. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes   However, if your modified AGI is above a certain amount, your contribution limit may be reduced, as explained later under Contribution limit reduced . Refile taxes Roth IRAs and traditional IRAs. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes Employer contributions under a SEP or SIMPLE IRA plan do not affect this limit. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes   However, if your modified AGI is above a certain amount, your contribution limit may be reduced, as explained below under Contribution limit reduced . Refile taxes   Simplified employee pensions (SEPs) are discussed in Publication 560. Refile taxes Savings incentive match plans for employees (SIMPLEs) are discussed in chapter 3. Refile taxes Repayment of reservist distributions. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes However, the total repayments cannot be more than the amount of your distribution. Refile taxes Note. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes For more information, see Qualified reservist repayments under How Much Can Be Contributed? in chapter 1. Refile taxes Contribution limit reduced. Refile taxes   If your modified AGI is above a certain amount, your contribution limit is gradually reduced. Refile taxes Use Table 2-1, later, to determine if this reduction applies to you. Refile taxes Table 2-1.

Refile taxes Example. Refile taxes You are a 45-year-old, single individual with taxable compensation of $113,000. Refile taxes You want to make the maximum allowable contribution to your Roth IRA for 2013. Refile taxes Your modified AGI for 2013 is $113,000. Refile taxes You have not contributed to any traditional IRA, so the maximum contribution limit before the modified AGI reduction is $5,500. Refile taxes You figure your reduced Roth IRA contribution of $5,140 as shown on Worksheet 2-2. Refile taxes Example—Illustrated, later. Refile taxes   Worksheet 2-2.

Refile taxes 5,140 When Can You Make Contributions? You can make contributions to a Roth IRA for a year at any time during the year or by the due date of your return for that year (not including extensions). Refile taxes You can make contributions for 2013 by the due date (not including extensions) for filing your 2013 tax return. Refile taxes This means that most people can make contributions for 2013 by April 15, 2014. Refile taxes What if You Contribute Too Much? A 6% excise tax applies to any excess contribution to a Roth IRA. Refile taxes Excess contributions. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes Withdrawal of excess contributions. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes This treatment only applies if any earnings on the contributions are also withdrawn. Refile taxes The earnings are considered earned and received in the year the excess contribution was made. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes If you do, file an amended return with “Filed pursuant to section 301. Refile taxes 9100-2” written at the top. Refile taxes Report any related earnings on the amended return and include an explanation of the withdrawal. Refile taxes Make any other necessary changes on the amended return. Refile taxes Applying excess contributions. Refile taxes    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. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes You may be able to roll over amounts from a qualified retirement plan to a Roth IRA. Refile taxes You may be able to recharacterize contributions made to one IRA as having been made directly to a different IRA. Refile taxes You can roll amounts over from a designated Roth account or from one Roth IRA to another Roth IRA. Refile taxes Conversions You can convert a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA. Refile taxes The conversion is treated as a rollover, regardless of the conversion method used. Refile taxes Most of the rules for rollovers, described in chapter 1 under Rollover From One IRA Into Another , apply to these rollovers. Refile taxes However, the 1-year waiting period does not apply. Refile taxes Conversion methods. Refile taxes   You can convert amounts from a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA in any of the following three ways. Refile taxes Rollover. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes Trustee-to-trustee transfer. Refile taxes You can direct the trustee of the traditional IRA to transfer an amount from the traditional IRA to the trustee of the Roth IRA. Refile taxes Same trustee transfer. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes Same trustee. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes Income. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes If you must include any amount in your gross income, you may have to increase your withholding or make estimated tax payments. Refile taxes See Publication 505, Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax. Refile taxes More information. Refile taxes   For more information on conversions, see Converting From Any Traditional IRA Into a Roth IRA in chapter 1. Refile taxes 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). Refile taxes Any amount rolled over is subject to the same rules for converting a traditional IRA into a Roth IRA. Refile taxes See Converting From Any Traditional IRA Into a Roth IRA in chapter 1. Refile taxes Also, the rollover contribution must meet the rollover requirements that apply to the specific type of retirement plan. Refile taxes Rollover methods. Refile taxes   You can roll over amounts from a qualified retirement plan to a Roth IRA in one of the following ways. Refile taxes Rollover. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes Since the distribution is paid directly to you, the payer generally must withhold 20% of it. Refile taxes Direct rollover option. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes Generally, no tax is withheld from any part of the designated distribution that is directly paid to the trustee of the Roth IRA. Refile taxes Rollover by nonspouse beneficiary. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes You must make the rollover by a direct trustee-to-trustee transfer into an inherited Roth IRA. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes For more information, see Distributions after the employee’s death under Tax on Excess Accumulation in Publication 575. Refile taxes Income. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes If you must include any amount in your gross income, you may have to increase your withholding or make estimated tax payments. Refile taxes See Publication 505, Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes The contribution is treated as a qualified rollover contribution. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes Any military death gratuity or SGLI payment contributed to a Roth IRA is disregarded for purposes of the 1-year waiting period between rollovers. Refile taxes The rollover must be completed before the end of the 1-year period beginning on the date you received the payment. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes Most of the rules for rollovers, described in chapter 1 under Rollover From One IRA Into Another , apply to these rollovers. Refile taxes However, rollovers from retirement plans other than Roth IRAs are disregarded for purposes of the 1-year waiting period between rollovers. Refile taxes A rollover from a Roth IRA to an employer retirement plan is not allowed. Refile taxes A rollover from a designated Roth account can only be made to another designated Roth account or to a Roth IRA. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes The 5-year period begins with the first taxable year for which the contribution was made to the initial Roth IRA. Refile taxes See What are Qualified Distributions , later. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes For more information, see Rollover of Exxon Valdez Settlement Income in chapter 1. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes The contribution must be made within 180 days from the date you received the payment. Refile taxes The contribution will be treated as a qualified rollover contribution. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes Qualified airline employee. Refile taxes    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. Refile taxes These provisions also apply to surviving spouses of qualified airline employees. Refile taxes Airline payment. Refile taxes    An airline payment is any payment of money or other property that is paid to a qualified airline employee from a commercial airline carrier. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes Also, an airline payment shall not include any amount payable on the basis of the airline carrier’s future earnings or profits. Refile taxes 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). Refile taxes You also do not include distributions from your Roth IRA that you roll over tax free into another Roth IRA. Refile taxes You may have to include part of other distributions in your income. Refile taxes See Ordering Rules for Distributions , later. Refile taxes Basis of distributed property. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes Withdrawals of contributions by due date. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes If you have an extension of time to file your return, you can withdraw the contributions and earnings by the extended due date. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes What Are Qualified Distributions? A qualified distribution is any payment or distribution from your Roth IRA that meets the following requirements. Refile taxes 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). Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes Distributions of conversion and certain rollover contributions within 5-year period. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes 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). Refile taxes A separate 5-year period applies to each conversion and rollover. Refile taxes See Ordering Rules for Distributions , later, to determine the recapture amount, if any. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes See What Are Qualified Distributions , earlier. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes You also must pay the additional tax on any portion of the distribution attributable to earnings on contributions. Refile taxes Other early distributions. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes Exceptions. Refile taxes   You may not have to pay the 10% additional tax in the following situations. Refile taxes You have reached age 59½. Refile taxes You are totally and permanently disabled. Refile taxes You are the beneficiary of a deceased IRA owner. Refile taxes You use the distribution to buy, build, or rebuild a first home. Refile taxes The distributions are part of a series of substantially equal payments. Refile taxes You have unreimbursed medical expenses that are more than 10% (or 7. Refile taxes 5% if you or your spouse was born before January 2, 1949) of your adjusted gross income (defined earlier) for the year. Refile taxes You are paying medical insurance premiums during a period of unemployment. Refile taxes The distributions are not more than your qualified higher education expenses. Refile taxes The distribution is due to an IRS levy of the qualified plan. Refile taxes The distribution is a qualified reservist distribution. Refile taxes Most of these exceptions are discussed earlier in chapter 1 under Early Distributions . Refile taxes Please click here for the text description of the image. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes For these purposes, disregard the withdrawal of excess contributions and the earnings on them (discussed earlier under What if You Contribute Too Much ). Refile taxes Order the distributions as follows. Refile taxes Regular contributions. Refile taxes Conversion and rollover contributions, on a first-in, first-out basis (generally, total conversions and rollovers from the earliest year first). Refile taxes See Aggregation (grouping and adding) rules, later. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes Earnings on contributions. Refile taxes Disregard rollover contributions from other Roth IRAs for this purpose. Refile taxes Aggregation (grouping and adding) rules. Refile taxes   Determine the taxable amounts distributed (withdrawn), distributions, and contributions by grouping and adding them together as follows. Refile taxes Add all distributions from all your Roth IRAs during the year together. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes Add this total to the total undistributed regular contributions made in prior years. Refile taxes Add all conversion and rollover contributions made during the year together. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes Also disregard any amount withdrawn to correct an excess contribution (including the earnings withdrawn) for this purpose. Refile taxes Example. Refile taxes On October 15, 2009, Justin converted all $80,000 in his traditional IRA to his Roth IRA. Refile taxes His Forms 8606 from prior years show that $20,000 of the amount converted is his basis. Refile taxes Justin included $60,000 ($80,000 − $20,000) in his gross income. Refile taxes On February 23, 2013, Justin made a regular contribution of $5,000 to a Roth IRA. Refile taxes On November 8, 2013, at age 60, Justin took a $7,000 distribution from his Roth IRA. Refile taxes The first $5,000 of the distribution is a return of Justin's regular contribution and is not includible in his income. Refile taxes The next $2,000 of the distribution is not includible in income because it was included previously. Refile taxes Figuring your recapture amount. Refile taxes   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. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes   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). Refile taxes The maximum amount you can enter on each line below is the amount entered on the referenced lines of the form for that year. Refile taxes Note. Refile taxes Once you have allocated the full amount from your 2013 Form 8606, line 19, STOP. Refile taxes See the Example , earlier.

Refile taxes Ishmael, age 32, opened a Roth IRA in 2000. Refile taxes He made the maximum contributions to it every year. Refile taxes In addition, he made the following transactions into his Roth IRA. Refile taxes In 2005, he converted $10,000 from his traditional IRA into his Roth IRA. Refile taxes He filled out a 2005 Form 8606 and attached it with his 2005 Form 1040. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes He entered $10,000 on line 18 of Form 8606. Refile taxes In 2011, he rolled over the entire balance of his qualified retirement plan, $20,000, into a Roth IRA when he changed jobs. Refile taxes He used a 2011 Form 1040 to file his taxes. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes Box 5 of his 2011 Form 1099-R reported $0 since he did not make any after-tax contributions to the qualified retirement plan. Refile taxes He entered $20,000 on line 16b of Form 1040 since that is the taxable amount that was rolled over in 2011. Refile taxes 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). Refile taxes He has not taken any early distribution from his Roth IRA before 2013. Refile taxes In 2013, he made the maximum contribution of $5,500 to his Roth IRA. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes See his filled out Illustrated Recapture Amount—Allocation Chart, later, to see how he allocated the amounts from the above transactions. Refile taxes 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). Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes 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. Refile taxes   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). Refile taxes The maximum amount you can enter on each line below is the amount entered on the referenced lines of the form for that year. Refile taxes Note.

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