I would report the amounts of the distributions in TurboTax line 14. It won't be an issue if New York is the only state you resided in, and/or worked in.

I removed the amounts from the line 14 on turbotax for those 1099-R's that were blank which resulted in a reduction of my NY state tax due of over $700. SO it does make a difference. Now with the one pension being reported by two different managers (two months for one and ten months for the other who took over) One reported the two month gross distribution in field 14 while the other did not. Shouldn't they both be reporting the same way on the 1099-R ? And which way? It's the same pension account. Just the management company has changed. NY is the only state I resided and worked in.
