Indirect Rollover of IRA distribution within 60 days (partial amount)

Level 5

Client took a total distribution for $42k, with both Box 1 gross distribution and Box 2a taxable amount on the Form 1099-R, showing the full amount.

The client then went and reinvested $20k within 60 days into a different traditional IRA. How do I account for this direct rollover and avoid being taxed on the full amount?

Scroll down to page 2 of the 1099R worksheet, theres a place for indirect rollovers.

Level 13

Make sure you get a copy of the 5498 showing the contribution of the $20k and the date of the distribution and the rollover and amount.

In about 16 months after 2023, the IRS will send the TP a notice requesting this "within 60 days" proof of rollover date with the amount.
