What is TurboTax asking in terms of Capital Gains? You don't pay capitals gains on either traditional IRA distributions or Roth IRA distributions. In the former case, you pay ordinary income tax rates and in the latter case, you don't pay any income tax at all so long as the distribution was qualified.

 

Oh, you are referring to box 3 on the 1099-R. Is there a number in it? There shouldn't be. Just enter the 1099-R as is.

Silly question - did you auto-import the 1099-R or enter it manually? 

 

If you auto-imported it, I would encourage to write down all the information on the 1099-R, then delete the 1099-R and re-enter it manually.
