IRS Announcement 2000-86


PURPOSE: The purpose of this announcement is to advise payers making distributions from IRAs of changes to the distribution codes entered in box 7 on the 2001 Form 1099-R, Distributions From Pensions, Annuities, Retirement or Profit-Sharing Plans, IRAs, Insurance Contracts, etc.

CHANGES TO DISTRIBUTION CODES

  1. Notice 2000-30, 2000-25 I.R.B. 1266, specifies a new method for reporting recharacterizations and reconversions occurring after 2000.

    RESULT. Because of Notice 2000-30, the following changes are being made to the distribution codes:

    • CODE N is added for reporting a "Recharacterized IRA contribution made for 2001."

    • CODE R is changed to report a "Recharacterized IRA contribution made for 2000."
  2. Only two distribution codes can be entered in box 7 on Form 1099-R. Therefore, payers were only able to report a distribution as the result of an excess contribution to a Roth IRA by using Code J with Code 8 or P. Payers could not use Code 1, 2, 3, or 4 if Codes J and 8 or P applied.

    RESULT. To alleviate this reporting problem, the following changes are being made to the distribution codes:

    • CODE J is changed to report an "Early distribution from a Roth IRA, no known exception."

    • CODE T is added to report a "Roth IRA distribution, exception applies."

    Therefore, payers can only use the following codes for a Roth IRA distribution:

    • CODE J for an early distribution from a Roth IRA, no known exception. (Do not use Code 1 with Code J. However, you must use Code 5, 8, or P, if applicable.)

    • CODE T for a distribution from a Roth IRA, exception applies. (Do not use Code 2, 3, 4, or 7 with Code T. However, you must use Code 5, 8, or P, if applicable.)
