Clearly, you didn't receive a distribution so you don't have to pay taxes on one. I suggest you enter the income as reported on the Form 1099-R, then you enter a negative adjustment to income for the same amount to cancel it out. That way the IRS will see the Form 1099-R listed on your tax return and won't send you a notice asking you to pay tax on it later on.

 

You can make that adjusting entry in TurboTax as follows:

 

1. From the Federal menu in TurboTax find Wages and Income 

2. Find Less Common Income

3. Choose Miscellaneous Income, 1099-A, 1099-C

4. Choose Other Reportable Income

5. Enter a description of the adjustment and the adjustment as a negative number

I would advise you seek out an attorney for this matter.

 

You shouldn't change the amounts on a 1099-R (the IRS has a copy).

 

The Code 1K in Box 7 indicates an 'Early Distribution, with No Known Exception, of IRA Assets not having a readily available FMV'.

 

If you have documentation that the real estate company bankrupted, and your assets are now worthless, (you lost 100K),  you should qualify for an exception, at least for the 10% penalty.

 

Do you have any statements or forms showing the activity of your account?  

 

Here's some info on how to Find a Verified Tax Pro that may be able to help.
