Retirement tax questions

No, their should not be a second code.   Code J cannot have any other code if not a return of contribution.  You answer the 5 year question in the interview.  Code 2 is used when the payer knows that there is an exception to the 10% early distribution penalty.   Code J means that you are under age 59 1/2 and the payer does not know if you have an exception - the interview also asks for that.
