I entered a 403(b) distribution from an educational institution.  There is a portion of the distribution that results from employee contributions and should not be taxable.  I entered this amount from the 1099-R 9b in Lacerte Screen 13.1, 9b.   I expected the taxable amount on 2(a) to be decreased by the employee contribution on line 9b.  The total distribution was taxed.  Do I need to decrease 2(a) by the amount on 9b.?  Thought the Lacerte software would automatically decrease the taxable amount.

It is rare for 403(b) employee contributions to be after tax. Are you sure the distribution should not be fully taxable?

Actually it was a defined benefit plan.  Figured out where you enter the employee contribution. - screen 24, adjustments to income. Thanks for your help.
