Leave Block 3 blank, unless there is an entry on your paper or digital copy of the Form 1099-R.

IF you had any capital gains, they would have been included in Block 2a. The Box 3 entry identifies any capital gains that were part of the box 2a amount because they would be treated differently for tax purposes.
