It's ok if no amount appears in box 12 on your Form 1099-R.

When box 12 is empty then no income was withheld from your retirement income.

All states do not tax retirement income.  If Form 1099-R, box 12 is empty then leave it blank.

Two additional states that only tax dividends and interest:

New Hampshire and Tennessee
Seven states that do not tax retirement (and other individual income) are:

Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming.
