My client took a distribution from his reitrement acct. after his company directed them to do so without penalty if it was related in some way to covid.
But I cna't find an exception code to use to avoid the $10k penalty that it typcial on early distributions.
Has anyone found one?
You are asking about disaster distributions.
Yes, most retirement accounts qualify; no, 529 plans don't qualify. A 529 plan is not a retirement plan. It's a school savings plan.
There is no $10k penalty. Perhaps you are asking about the 10% early withdrawal penalty.
