Where do I enter the 401(K) distribution my client received? Federal taxes was withheld from it but the employer did not issue form 1099-, instead just a form of information letter with no code.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The employer wouldn't issue it, the bank that sent the check would issue.it. You need the 1099R, especially since there is withholding.
They're required by law to issue a 1099-R. In the unlikely event the employer refuses to issue one, a F.4852 should be filed with the return and that would prompt the IRS to pursue the employer.
Still an AllStar
