If box 7 of the 1099R is coded a 1 or 2 (early retirement distributions), it may be taxable on a PA income tax return.  Codes 4(death) and 7(normal distributions) are not subject to PA income tax.

If an early distribution, that portion of the distribution that exceeds your basis in the plan is taxable.  Your basis is the sum of all contributions you made into the plan through the years less the sum of all previous distributions from the plan.

Finish all your Federal stuff first...put everything in there.

The 1099-R will show as taxable in PA...until you actually go thru the PA questions (Picture below)....but you need to finish everything in the Fed section first
