Entering a Roth IRA distribution on Form 8606 Part III in ProConnect Tax

by Intuit Updated 8 months ago

This article explains how to report a Roth IRA distribution in Part III of Form 8606.

Follow these steps to enter a Roth IRA distribution:

  1. Go to Input Return Income Pensions, IRA's (1099-R)
  2. Fill in the applicable information.
  3. Select Details for more entries.
  4. Enter the full distribution in Gross Distribution.
  5. In the Distribution Code #1 field, select J, Q, or T (whichever is shown on Form 1099-R, box 7) from the dropdown menu.
    • If the distribution is a non-qualified Roth IRA distribution (distribution code J or T) and the input for (2A) Taxable Amount (Code 4) is left blank, the program uses the entered gross amount to determine the taxable amount on Form 8606, page 2.
      • In determining the taxable amount, the program offsets the gross distribution by any Roth contribution or conversion basis entered on Adjustments to Income.
    • If the distribution is a qualified Roth IRA distribution (distribution code Q), the distribution isn't taxed.
    • However, if a taxable amount is entered for a qualified Roth IRA distribution, the program will carry it to Form 8606.
    • Go to Input Return Income Pensions, IRA's (1099-R)
  6. Fill in the applicable information.
  7. Enter the full distribution in Gross Distribution.
  8. In the Distribution Code #1 field, select J, Q, or T (whichever is shown on Form 1099-R, box 7) from the dropdown menu.
    • If the distribution is a non-qualified Roth IRA distribution (distribution code J or T) and the input for (2A) Taxable Amount  is left blank, the program uses the entered gross amount to determine the taxable amount on Form 8606, page 2.
      • In determining the taxable amount, the program offsets the gross distribution by any Roth contribution or conversion basis entered on Adjustments to Income.
    • If the distribution is a qualified Roth IRA distribution (distribution code Q), the distribution isn't taxed.
    • However, if a taxable amount is entered for a qualified Roth IRA distribution, the program will carry it to Form 8606.
