What’s Form 1099-R?
Form 1099-R is the form used to report distributions from pensions, annuities, retirement or profit-sharing plans, IRAs, insurance contracts, etc. If distributions of $10 or more were paid from one of these sources to an individual during the calendar year, it must be reported on Form 1099-R to the IRS and to the individual receiving the funds.
Most public and private pension plans not included in the Civil Service System can use Form 1099-R to report distributions as well. Filers can also use Form 1099-R to report certain death benefit payments from employers and disability payments from retiring plans.
When Does it Need to be Filed?
Like other 1099 Forms, Form 1099-R needs to be filed with the IRS the year following the tax year the distribution payments were made. So for the 2016 tax year, the deadlines for when 1099-R Forms need to be turned in are:
- January 31, 2017, for recipient copies to be mailed out.
- February 28, 2017, for IRS copies to be mailed, if paper filing.
- March 31, 2017, for IRS copies to be transmitted, if e-filing.
