Non-Qualified Distribution

A distribution from an IRA, 401(k), education savings plan, or similar vehicle that is subject to income tax when it otherwise would not be. Generally speaking, a distribution is non-qualified when one makes it before a certain age (for a retirement plan) or in excess of a certain amount (for an education plan). Non-qualified distributions may also be subject to excise taxes.
