Yes, you do have to report the 1099-R in your tax return.  The IRS has a copy of it.  You may have received it if you rolled over funds into another retirement account, in which case it isn't taxable.  Or if you took out a loan on your 401k and stopped making payments on it, the loan balance would be considered a distribution. 

The Code in Box 7 shows what type of distribution it was.

Here's info on how to enter it in TurboTax:
