That would be a correct error code, since the 7 means it's a regular distribution and would be taxable.  The g means it's a nontaxable rollover.  Contradictory.  So, which did you do, take a distribution or roll over an amount to another eligible plan?  The answer depends on what you really did.

OK, this was a distribution from a class-action lawsuit.  The payers name on the 1099 R is Enron Corp Savings Plan.  I rolled this "normal distribution" into my Edward Jones IRA.  Does this change your opinion?

Also, the 1099 R shows a blank for box 2a, "Taxable amount".

Since you did roll it  over( must be done in 60 days) I would leave the 7.  After you make the entry, there are questions you will be asked as you Continue.  One of  the questions will ask what you did with the money and you can choose that you rolled it over there.

Leave the 2a blank when you enter this in the program.
