Form 1099-R

An IRS form reporting income from distributions from an IRA, 401(k), pension plan, profit-sharing plan, insurance plan, or another, similar instrument. The form indicates how much was withheld for taxes, if any, and the total amount of income one derived from a plan. This helps the plan holder calculate his/her tax liability from these plans.

Examples of the retirement plan records contemplated under the second rule include participant census information (i.e., dates of hire, termination, and re-hire, compensation, hours of service, etc.); participant election and beneficiary forms; actuarial valuations (if applicable); distribution amounts and dates, completed distribution forms (including, if applicable, spousal consents), and Forms 1099R; annual accounting reports (specifically individual participant account records); trust accountings; and executed plan documents and documents for associated funding arrangements (i.e., trust agreements or annuity contracts).
In addition to using Forms 1099R and Form 1040, we also use Form 5498, which tracks contributions to IRAs, makes it possible to observe when taxpayers receive a (potentially taxable) distribution, but then avoid the tax and early withdrawal consequences by rolling the money directly into another qualified account within 60 days.
The employers would then report the retirement distributions on forms 1099R, less the benefit costs, effectively paying the health benefits with pretax dollars.
