Qualified Disaster Distribution Worksheet

RichardS77
Level 3

A distribution from  a qualified retirement plan due to the coronavirus pandemic is exempt form the 10% early withdrawal penalty.  Plus I thought  the taxpayer could  spread the tax effect over 5 years.  What if the taxpayer wants to pay  all the taxes in the current year on that distribution?  How is that entered in ProSeries?

Thanks in advance for you help.

On the 1099R worksheet, scroll down to the disaster section and mark the Covid boxes, that will auto populate the 8915E.   

If you want to pay tax on the entire amount on the 2020 return, rather than spread over 3 years (5 years is NOT an option), then you check the box on Line 5 of the 8915E.
