Overview

Distributions from retirement accounts that occur before the account owner reaches age 59½ are subject to a 10% additional tax, unless an exception applies. Eligibility for any of these exceptions is determined by several factors, including the type of account from which the distribution is made. Making a wrong move can result in a retirement account owner losing eligibility for an exception. In some cases, exceptions can only be claimed through proper reporting on the individual's tax return.

Major Topics:

  • Early distribution penalty
  • Exceptions to the age 59½ rule
  • Substantially equal periodic payments
  • Exceptions by plan/account type
  • Transfer and rollover rules and their effects on qualifications for the exceptions
  • Claiming the exception when an IRA custodian's tax reporting shows no exception
  • The rules that apply to the different exceptions

Learning Objectives

  • Identify distributions that might be subject to the 10% early distribution penalty
  • Ensure that clients who qualified for the exceptions do not pay the 10% early distribution penalty because of conflicting tax reporting by IRA custodians and plan trustees
  • Understand the tax reporting requirements that apply to early distributions
  • Determine suitability for the substantially equal periodic payment program
