Additional Tax on ROTH IRA Distribution

Level 2

My client withdrew his ROTH IRA for $1,000 in 2023.  The first year of designated Roth contribution was 2020. The Form 1099-R has a distribution code 7 for early distribution of Roth IRA.

I understand the early withdrawal penalty of 10%.  However, in Schdule 2 - Additional, Taxes, Part II - Other Taxes, Line 8 - Additional tax on IRA or tax favored account, Proseries puts in $6,500.

Can somebody please help me why such withdrawal imposes a $6,500 taxes?  Appreciate any responses on this matter.
