When it comes to lump-sum distributions, there are several factors to consider. First, the tax rate will depend on an individual’s age and the distribution date.
If the recipient is under 59 and a half, he or she will generally pay the 10% penalty upon withdrawal; however, if the distribution occurs after this age requirement, it may be tax-free.
Secondly, depending on whether the funds were held in a pre-tax, Roth, or simple account, taxes could be imposed on the entire amount or only on a portion of it. Furthermore, any income that is taxable must be declared in the tax return.
The first step in computing the amount of tax on lump-sum distributions is determining the total taxable income. To determine the taxable amount, add together all taxable components and subtract any nontaxable amounts and subtract any deductions, credit, and losses.
The next step is to calculate the applicable tax rate for the taxable portion of the distribution to determine the full amount of tax due. Depending on the taxpayer’s situation, there may also be additional taxes or deductions, such as the 3.8% Net Investment Income Tax and the 15% alternative minimum tax (AMT).
Once Form 4972 has been completed, the taxpayer is ready to file their tax return. The return must include the amount of the lump-sum distribution and the taxes due, including any applicable penalties. In addition, Form 4972 must be included with the return for the IRS to review.
