In 2020, I took a withdrawal, ~14k, from my Roth IRA due to COVID-19 difficulties. I used the money to pay off mounting credit cards and debts. I did not have Vanguard set aside 10% for the IRS as it

Why do I owe both state and federal taxes on a $15k COVID-19 relief Roth IRA withdrawal made in tax year 2020? Vanguard gave me a 1099r, I entered it, and I still owe. Help!

If it was A COVID related distribution, then  it must be reported on the new 8915-E form that does not exist yet.

 

See below for a link to sign up for an email when the form is ready.

This form is necessary to report COVID related distributions from IRA's and other retirement plans to report the distribution, pay it back over 3 years or spread the tax over 3 years.

A COVID-19 related distribution is reported on a new 8915-E form that is not yet available and there is no estimated release date since the form is still in the draft state at the IRS. There is no telling how long it will take the IRS to make the electronic form available.

The draft paper form 8915-E is here:

Thank you for the 8915 info, I'll standby for that!

 

Also, this seems to be more than just a 10% penalty. Apparently I owe ~2.5k for federal and nearly the same amount for state owed. Yet I only withdrew ~14.5k...

 

Thoughts, here? Again, we're talking roth, so not sure why this amount is being deducted?
