IRS Tax Distribution Form 1099-R
Form 1099-R – Distributions from Pensions, Annuities, or Retirement Plans
The Form 1099-R’s are mailed by the end of January. In some cases, you may receive more than one since a 1099-R will be sent for each distribution type.
For example: You will receive two Form 1099-R’s for the year in which you attain age 59 ½. There is a different distribution code for the payments issued before age 59 ½ and a different distribution code for payments issued after you attain age 59 ½.
You may need to include the Form 1099-R with your federal income tax filing. Please see the sample 1099-R for an explanation of the boxes found on the form.
