You will have a 1099R on the distribution and will get credit for the taxes paid when you got the distribution.

Reporting the income on the distribution is somewhat similar to wage income where it is reported on the return and then you get credit for taxes taken out during the year.

Will you have to pay additional taxes when the 1099R is entered?  The only way to know for sure is to enter it in TurboTax.

If it is an early distribution there is a 10% penalty that is part of the return.

There is also ordinary income tax on the total amount of $30,000 this is taxed depending on the income tax bracket you are in. 

 To enter pension and annuity Payments (1099-R)
