SOLVEDby IntuitProSeries Basic342Updated 1 week ago

Before you start:

Form 8915-F (Qualified Disaster Retirement Plan Distributions and Repayments) replaces Form 8915-E for 2021 and later years.

  • The 8915-E is a new form for tax year 2020 for coronavirus-related retirement plan distributions.
  • The information from Form 8915-E will be e-filed with the tax return as an IRS approved statement.
  • IRS instructions can be found here.

Generating the 8915-E in ProSeries:

Form 8915-E is now available in ProSeries Professional and ProSeries Basic.

  1. Open the 1099-R Worksheet.
  2. Enter boxes 1–19 to match the 1099-R received.
  3. Scroll down to the Qualified Disaster Distribution Smart Worksheet.
  4. On line A check the 2020 Coronavirus-related Distribution.
  5. Complete lines B-D of the Qualified Disaster Distribution Smart Worksheet.
